Extras from the popular Showtime programme were snapped on set close to the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin yesterday afternoon.

Actors dressed as police officers and bedraggled-looking locals appeared relaxed in between takes as they filmed the third season of the popular drama.

The show focuses on a number of literary characters, including Oscar Wilde's Dorian Grey. It is expected that the third season will be broadcast on Sky Atlantic next year - and it is believed to be one of the largest television shows to have ever been filmed in Ireland.
