Our main channel for Summer Wine and other British shows, WETA- UK, really pushes this show. My wife and I finally got around to watching it. It certainly has its moments. Sometimes. I am more into it than others. I would like to see a little more of the restaurant side of the show.

The restaurant was in the High Street in the old part of town of Hemel Hempstead, looks like it is now a hairdressers, In the 90's I was doing some telecom work in offices opposite, it was during the winter months, so dark around 4pm, I left the offices about 5pm and it was very bright outside, a voice shouted cut, I had stepped out into a night filming scene for pie in the sky and I had come into shot, they ushered me away and carried on.

I think it was also used in Foyles War, again a restaurant, it was a Italian family running the place and they were firebombed by a angry mob.

I previously said in Midsomer but it was Foyles War

Did you get paid for your 'Walk on' part?.

In some of the PitS series they used a blue office building in Bracknell as the exterior of the police station. I worked there at the time and remember seeing them setting up to film when I arrived at the car park in the morning.
