ACTOR Martin Clunes filmed scenes for a new TV drama series at the Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed.
The Doc Martin star visited Joyce Grove for filming of Arthur and George, a three-part adaptation of Julian Barnes’ novel for ITV. He plays celebrated author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Graham Campbell, head of support services at the hospice, said: “They were here just for a day doing some scenes inside the hall and reception area. They set up from 7am, started filming about 10am and finished about 6.30pm.
“There were a lot of people watching as a lot of families had come in to visit their relatives.
“All the crew — the runners, the assistant directors — were charming. They were very nice to our patients and relatives that were held up for 30 seconds while they took a shot.”
