By the time we heard about it, sure, wasn’t the Hollywood circus packing up and moving out…
Moving out of St Brigid’s old building, to be precise, where most of the film shoot was taking place.
And out of St David’s, where all the cast and crew were parked up.
The shoot was for Miss Scarlet And The Duke, a new TV series centred around the eponymous 19th century female detective as she teams up with the eponymous Scotland Yard inspector to go Full Sherlock In A Dress.
So, it’s appropriate that they chose St Brigid’s as their 19th century backdrop.
It was young Johnny Morrison who shouted across the SuperValu car park, wondering why we hadn’t covered “the dirty big film shoot going on at Brigid’s“. That would be because, hey, NO FECKER TOLD US ABOUT THE DIRTY BIG FILM SHOOT GOING ON AT BRIGID’S.
Having arrived Monday, this evening, it was last orders, as leading lady, Kate Phillips (The Crown, Peaky Blinders, the upcoming Downton Abbey movie), strolled across Kimberley Road in period costume, whilst leading man Stuart Martin – who could come in handy if Hugh Jackman ever disappears – pretty much towered over his two female co-workers as they headed back to their St David’s mini-village.
A joint production between USA’s A+E Networkand Element 8 Entertainment, the six-part TV series was created by Rachel New, making her producer debut after writing on the likes ofEastenders, New Tricks and Trollied.
Now, here’s hoping it’s a damn good series. We’ve had more than our fair share of shite shoots around here.
