The story line has the location as a convent in Ireland. However, I dare say the BBC’s location budget puts the building a bit closer to London.

Window – L to R Blazon Armiger
1 Argent two bars wavy between three eagles displayed Azure .
2 . .
3 . .
4 Gules two chevron(el)s Argent .
5 Argent three mullets Azure within a bordure Sable .
