Lights, Camera, Action

Well, I bet you all thought I had been blown into blogger cyberspace, sorry its been so long since I have updated, and commented on all your lovely blogs, but been busy with other things, mainly to do with crafty things, getting things made for up and coming fairs, trying to think of new things, source new things and then make everything.

In my last post I showed you all a picture of Monkey and said I would tell you all his/her (don't know if its a girl or a boy) but I'am afraid Monkey will have to wait until next time as wanted to show you all these pictures of a new ITV series they have been filming down at West Bay where we live.  Eccentric daughter and I went to have a bit of a stalk (ooh should I be saying that word or not), anyway they have been filmnig before at the end of August but we didn't see anything, now they are back, having inside information as some have been staying at the guest house where I work.  They have taken over the car park near the old station full of trailer vans, canteen, I think there's more directors and makers than cast, anyway this is what we found on our stalking trip...

Lots of strange equipment

Do you know who this is

He's been in lots of things, but best known for his role as the last Doctor Who

yes, it is him, David Tennant

There was lots of standing around and waiting

He is starring with Olivia Colman, seen here

she was in Hot Fuzz and the Iron Lady and many other, too many to list here, also starring Pauline Quirke and Arthur Darvill, who played  Rory in Doctor Who, and who is apparently starring in a West End Show and is rushing down Thursday night to film Friday, what a busy life!

This pics for eccentric daughter, waving as she was taking a picture

But its always reasurring that everybody 

dunks their biscuits in their tea and

wipes their nose

I don't think he was too happy on the boat, it was very rough, perhaps feeling a little seasick

getting to know the sights of West Bay

Everybody was very friendly and didn't mind lots of people about and didn't keep you out of the filming bits

The series which is to be shown in the New Year and is called Broadchurch, is a Detective one about a small coastal town (West Bay) and turns the close-knit community into turmoil as a body is discovered on the beach.

They are back in November filming so I suppose a bit more stalking will be on the cards.

But it was all too much for the mad dog

totally bored
