Ill Behaviour: filming location and broadcast news

There is a new article on Gloucestershire Live about filming of The Crown in Gloucestershire, that also contains some interesting location and broadcast tit-bits about the new BBC comedy drama series by Sam Bain, directed by Steve Bendelack - Ill Behaviour - which Tom may be filming at the moment.

Crews have been seen at Hilles House, Edge for the filming of a new BBC TV drama called Ill Behaviour, directed by Steve Pemberton (Mighty Boosh, League of Gentlemen) too.

Event manager at the house which doubles as a wedding venue, Lucie Tay, said Ill Behaviour is due out in 2017.

"Today is the last day of filming - we have had a lot of car chases," she said. 

As well as filming at Hilles House, crew have been located at a farm at Colethrop between Harescombe and Haresfield. Location signs tell crew how to reach that location from junction 12 of the M5, and on to Hilles House on top of the Cotswold Escarpment a few miles away.
