Hollywood Returns to West Didsbury…

December 9, 2011

So, the week started with a film crew on Burton Road. And ended that way. In between times, we can confirm that the filming has been for a new three part ITV drama, pleasingly called “Love Life” 🙂

A quick search told us that the leading man would be Rob James Collier – he of Coronation Street and Downtown Abbey fame – and sure enough, there he was, large as life, outside the office. With his co-star, Alexander Armstrong. A bit bizarre for a Friday afternoon. More info here if you’re desperate to know about “Love Life”. So, filming continued – and I have to say, it was very distracting, and perhaps less work than normal was achieved. Although, at least I didn’t dress a dog up in a Father Xmas outfit and put him in my window. Or, deliver six letters, individually, to the post box. Step forward Mr Johnson… 🙂

So, hopefully Didsbury will once again be on the map when this series is aired – and it has been very nice to have such a buzz going around us. Although NOT good that filming is STILL going on, therefore preventing our early Friday evening weekly pilgrimage over to Folk. Thank goodness Mike Garry had already decided to do a night at Love2Eat Deli…
