Das Boot

Sky Atlantic has been filming the latest series of Das Boot here. The car park by the beach where we walk the dogs has been transformed into an American Bay Diner and Motel. The path behind the sign takes you directly to the boardwalk and the beach. We usually park behind where the diner is situated, but that part of the carpark was cut off. A few old vehicles where there too as part of the filming was done on our coastal road on Monday and cut off from traffic.

As mentioned, the coastal road was cut off on Monday to become a Maine. We also walk the dogs on the dunes by the coast road where as mentioned in a previous post the cattle graze for 7 months a year.

It is not the first time we have had film crews here. War Of The Worlds was filmed here last year, namely the site of the second cylinder that crashes into the pine forests near Horsell Common. Liverpool is 40 minutes drive south and lots of filming is done there all the time, namely Das Boot, War Of The World, Peaky Blinders, 51st State (I supplied equipment for this one), Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Fast & Furious 6, Captain America, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, Creed, and so much more.

We have seen many famous actors too whilst things have been filmed here, including Tom Hardy, Killian Murphy, Robert Carlisle, Rafe Spall amongst many others, also Sir Anthony Quayle came from our village.

Here are a few shots from the BBC’s 3 part series of War Of The Worlds, not too sure when it is getting released yet.
