So it was that I, and a colleague, were wandering back from lunch (a new Chinese restaurant in town - all you can eat buffet for £5.99 [I am there]), and we decided to take a convoluted route back past a set of marquees and film crews set up outside the Police station - so desperate to find out what ruffian was being released today...
Only, it was a real film crew. And, who came racing past on their ways to their chauffeurs, one after the other (I guess in time for their lunch since filming looked as if it was wrapping up)?
Well, none other than Marc Warren and Alexander Armstrong (strange but true).
They're filming a new BBC production called "Mutual Friends".
