Bad Move – Filming In Rosedale 1 to 5 May 2017

Most people living in the dale will have seen that a film production company has been at work in the village for the last few days, but visitors and others might like to know what is happening. The programme being made is a six part sitcom for ITV starring the comedian Jack Dee, with a working title ‘Bad Move’ . The scenario involves a couple, Steve and Nicky (Jack Dee and Kerry Godliman) moving ‘oop North’ to take over a run-down village store and the amusing encounters they have with locals and so on. The series is due to air sometime in the Autumn, but other than that little else is know at this stage. Some scenes from the recent activity:

It’s Raining In Rosedale

The company is moving on to other parts of the county on Friday including a session in Harrogate, before moving back to London to complete filming and editing. It has been a fascinating process to watch and we wish them well for the rest of the their time in Yorkshire.

Finally, many thanks to David Seaton, the location manager and his assistant Eugene for their help in allowing access to locations.
