As we all know Torbay has been used dozens of times as a movie and TV location. Sometimes these locations aren’t listed anywhere so it takes the eagle eye of a local to recognise a familiar place; particularly if a movie is set and mostly filmed a continent away.

Home for a Royal Heart is a 2022 Canadian TV Movie.
“When the beautiful seaside town of Shaw Bay is under threat of a major commercial redevelopment, realtor Erin will do anything to save it — she just needs to find a wealthy property buyer. Cue the handsome yet super-private Theo. To begin, helping Theo find a new home is proving to be tricky — especially because he refuses to give Erin any details about his life.
