How to watch Granite Harbour anywhere



David has been watching TV outside of his home country for over 12 years. In addition to his streaming expertise, he has a wealth of experience in watching sports and documentaries, having spent many years following these genres. He is an avid fan of The Detectorists and Blue Planet, and also has a keen interest in English football.

Granite Harbour looks all set to be a classic TV odd-couple cop show.

It’s a genre that has been flogged to death over the years but reinvented afresh for the 21st Century with more than a few twists on the original premise.

It’s already received strong reviews and is doubtless a show that all fans of cop shows and crime dramas will want to check out.

The problem is that if you find yourself overseas for work or for pleasure, you will struggle to find Granite Harbour on local channels and streaming services.

Fortunately, there is a way around this problem that can help you to watch Granite Harbour in any country and in this guide, we are going to share all the details.

Where is Granite Harbour being shown?

Granite Harbour is being broadcast in the UK on the BBC.

It is also being streamed live, on-demand, and most importantly, for free, on the BBC iPlayer streaming service.

Unfortunately, the BBC iPlayer isn’t available to viewers outside the UK, so if you want to watch from there, you will need some help.

How do I watch Granite Harbour where I am?

To watch Granite Harbour, if you are visiting another country or living there more permanently, you will need the help of an app called a ‘VPN‘.

A VPN, if you aren’t already aware of them, is an online app that works by letting you redirect all your internet data via an external server to help keep your data safe and hide your real location.

VPNs can have servers located anywhere in the world, so if you are outside the UK and want to watch Granite Harbour on the BBC iPlayer, all you need to do is choose a UK server.

Once connected, the BBC iPlayer will think you are in your home country and so let you watch Granite Harbour no matter where in the world you are.

Where to get a VPN?

There are hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of VPNs on the market, but if you want to unblock BBC iPlayer to watch Granite Harbour, you need to narrow this down quite a lot.

There is a relatively small number of VPNs that work with the BBC iPlayer first of all. Then, you also need to find one with fast connection speeds, plenty of UK-based servers, and apps for the devices you want to watch on.

ExpressVPN is the one to go for. It does all of the above, plus it also offers a superb 30-day money-back guarantee too.

If you don’t like the look of ExpressVPN, NordVPN and Surfshark VPN also do everything you need them to and come with a 30-day money-back guarantee too.

Our advice is that ExpressVPN is the best VPN to go for, but you’re free to pick.

What is Granite Harbour all about?

Granite Harbour sees Lance Corporal Davis Lindo joining up with the civilian police after a spell as a military policeman. He was hoping to join the Metropolitan Police in London but is instead posted to Aberdeen.

He has to adapt to his new life and work, which is vastly different to what he is used to. He makes an ally in DCI Lara Bartlett, an Aberdeen native who is streetwise and prefers to work alone.

But when a famous face in the local oil industry is murdered, they have to team up to take on the vested interests. Can they make it work and crack the case?

With multiple suspects and a chic wardrobe to call on, this drama has plenty and is, as one critic wittily observed, “an odd-couple police procedural about the dressiest crime solvers in all of Police Scotland’s history.”

Who stars in Granite Harbour?

The role of Lance Corporal Davis Lindo is played by rising star Romario Simpson (Small Axe, Noughts and Crosses), while DCI Lara Bartlett is played by Hannah Donaldson (Murder Island, Annika).

There are also impressive turns by a wide range of Scottish acting talent including Dawn Steele (Holby City, Liar), Gary Lewis (Vigil, Rig 45) and Fiona Bell (The Nest, Shetland).

There is also a starring role for Aberdeen too, with the Granite City being portrayed in all its glory here.


Granite City has the cast, the plot, the scenery, and also the wardrobe too. Oh boy, what a wardrobe!

It’s definitely a show not to miss, and with a VPN, you don’t have to, no matter where in the world you are.

ExpressVPN is the one to go for. Just sign up, download the ExpressVPN app, log in, connect to a UK-based server, and then log in to BBC iPlayer as normal.

As odd couple cop shows go, this is one with something a bit different. It certainly has real potential, and if this is your sort of thing, you will want to be in on this series on the ground floor.
