DH and Youngest left at ridiculous o’clock yesterday morning to be on set for 7.30am in Liverpool for the filming of the new BBC drama Broken. Their description is
Father Michael, a Catholic priest presiding over a Northern urban parish who is Modern, maverick, and reassuringly flawed; must be confidante, counselor and confessor to a congregation struggling to reconcile its beliefs with the challenges of daily life
They were installed in the crew bus when they first arrived
This is Sean Bean’s motor-home!!!
When they went off to do their scenes they were transported in a minibus, Mr Bean (!) in a Range Rover!!!! So even in the great world of make believe there are the “Haves” and “Have Nots”!!!!!!!!!
DH’s call was not until after lunch (they had fish & chips, sticky toffee pudding and cheese and biscuits!!!!) and this was his costume
His character was a mortuary attendant and he looks suitably subdued!!!!!
So you may wonder what exciting things they did on set? Nothing! They hung around for the whole day and went to set and they did nothing!!!!!!! However they do get paid for being there all day!!!! No wonder these programmes and films cost so much to make, paying people to be there and not use them and feeding them!!!!!
They got home about 9.00pm but Youngest had enjoyed the experience and it has not put him off wanting to be an actor! Let’s hope he will be the one with the Motor-home and Range Rover!!!!!
I ended up doing jobs all day and getting the ironing up to date as well, so was tired by the end of it! Hopefully next week I will get to do some fun things. However we did get quite a few jobs done in the garden on Saturday as it was lovely, so another job ticked off the list.
I hope you are having a marvelous Monday.
Hugs, Susie x
