~Filming of "Partners in Crime" in London and Simple & Sweet Fridays #137~

I wanted to share with you a wonderful surprise we saw when we were in London, England.
A filming for a new series on BBC called,
 "Partners in Crime".

BBC One brings Endor Productions and Acorn Productions' Agatha Christie’s married couple Tommy and Tuppence to life in a brand-new six-part adventure series for the channel. Partners In Crime stars David Walliams (Little Britain, Big School) as Tommy and Jessica Raine (Call The Midwife, Wolf Hall) as Tuppence.
Directed by Edward Hall (Restless, Downton Abbey), episodes 1-3, 'The Secret Adversary', are written by award-winning author, playwright and director Zinnie Harris, (Spooks, Born With Two Mothers, Richard Is My Boyfriend) with the following three, 'N or M?' penned by Claire Wilson, (Where There Is Darkness, Twist).

Partners In Crime is produced by Georgina Lowe, (Mr Turner, Mad Dogs), executive produced by Emmy award-winning Hilary Bevan Jones (Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot, State Of Play), David Walliams, Hilary Strong (Poirot, Have I Got News For You) and Mathew Prichard for Acorn Productions/Agatha Christie Ltd and Matthew Read for the BBC.
Partners In Crime is an adventure series with espionage and humour at its heart. Set in a 1950s Britain rising from the ashes of the Blitz into the grip of a new Cold War, our beekeeping duo stumble into a world of murder, undercover agents and cold war conspiracy.
We were doing a lot of sightseeing and came across a film crew taping in Holborn, England.
The building in the background is the back entrance to the
Royal Court of Justice.
It was very exciting to watch what happens
 behind the camera. 
They were filming one scene and it took a long time for everything to go just right.
Seeing David Walliams and Jessie Raine in person 
made my day.
Lots of people involved in making this series possible.
We watched for about 1 hour while they shot the scene.

I was in awe how beautiful the buildings looked.
Can't wait to see the series in November.
Just around the corner was the,
 "Old Curiosity Shop,
 I went to in 1972.
13 Portsmouth Street, Holborn, London WC2A 2ES 
So I had to take another photo with Stan.
The paint has changed but,
 it still has the same charm it had then.
It was a great day to share it with my girls!
 Lots of wonderful memories!

  1. So exciting to watch a series being filmed, isn't it, and what a beautiful location! Your photos at the Old Curiosity Shoppe, both past and present, are sweet for different reasons, I'm sure, but both include the love of family.

    Thanks for hosting, and have a wonderful weekend!

  14. This is the best information I've heard all week. I could not understand why Jessica Raine was leaving Call The Midwife. Now I know. I am so smitten with British television. I can't wait to see the new series. I love that you updated the photo, how often does that happen. Oh, and thanks for hosting.

  22. Thank you so very much for the feature this week on my "A Little Autumn Here and There" post. It is such a honor to be selected! What a great surprise to watch a film being shot while on your trip to England. I've never been to England, but I hope to do so some time in the future. I think my husband and I should though being that he plays John Lennon in The Cast of Beatlemania. ;) Thanks for hosting your party!
