As filming of series three of the cracking daytime drama WPC 56 approaches it’s halfway point, the cast and crew have, once again, been filming scenes at the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley. On set, filming scenes from episode three of the latest series, were new cast member Claudia Jessie (WPC Annie Taylor) and series two regular Liam Jeavons (PC Tommy Perkins).
Actors Oliver Rix and Matt Kennard were pictured sheltering from the heavy rain beneath brightly coloured umbrellas and new girl Claudia Jessie sported a rather fetching spotted rain hat. They were also both caught in action, in a chase scene that included a stunt jump between canal boats.
To give the show that authentic 1950s feel a bus from the Black Country Living Museum collection can also be seen in the shots. The restored 1952 Daimler West Bromwich Corporation Transport bus, GEA 174, was added to the collection in November 2013 after a nine year restoration project.
The Drone Cam mentioned in a tweet by Daniel Brocklebank (Carl Saunders) is also pictured flying above the museum’s main street.
The full set of 41 pictures can be viewed on the ContactMusic.com website.
The West Midlands Entertainment website, Native Monster, have also released a short video of some of the action filmed at the Black Country Living Museum this week.
