Local residents are used to seeing film production crews visiting this part of Buckinghamshire, so it was not especially unusual to see a small film crew in Haddenham over the weekend.
It seems they were researching village locations and exploring possible ideas for a future TV programme.
They spent time talking to a number of local residents who had a particular perspective to offer, including:
Tom Bucknell, owner of the Tythe Barn at Manor Farm
Pete Summerskill, a key member of the beer festival team
local historian Alan Rose,
Wychert expert and historic building restorer Chris Bowler
Village Society Chairman, Roderick Floud, and
local butcher and general good egg(house) Ricky Jeffrey.
To the best of our knowledge there were no murders on this occasion, but once we know more about the nature of the film crew's visit, we will bring you the details.
