Who watches the Watchmen? The highly anticipated television series is based on the DC Comics graphic novel from the genius of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The action is taking place in a dystopian alternate reality where superheroes changed the course of history since they emerged in the 1940s.

The main characters are played by Jeremy Irons as Adrian Veidt (aka Ozymandias), Regina King as Angela Abar (Sister Night), Tim Blake Nelson as Wade Tillman (Looking Glass), Don -Miami Vice- Johnson as Chief Judd Crawford and Jean Smart as Laurie Blake, the FBI agent member of the Anti-Vigilante Task Force.

The series is set in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Watchmen was filmed in several towns in Georgia including Atlanta, and also in Wales (UK). We will be updating this report with more filming locations on the HBO show every week:

Watchmen castle
Adrian's mansion was filmed in the Penrhyn Castle in Bangor, Wales (United Kingdom). This old fortress was transformed into a Neo-Norman manor house after several reconstructions between the 17th and 18th centuries.
