Filming started on Huddersfield’s streets yesterday for a TV drama starring Michael Palin.

The cameras were at Wood Street in Slaithwaite for the programme called Remember Me – but Sheffield-born Monty Python star Palin, 70, is not in the area yet.

He plays elderly Tom Parfitt, who witnesses a murder on the day he moves into a nursing home.

The drama, which also stars Mark Addy as a policeman, is being filmed in Huddersfield and Scarborough and will be shown later this year.

 

A lot of the filming will be done at North Light Film Studios in Armitage Bridge and is the third BBC show to be based there in six months.

Studios spokesman Ben Sweet – a former Huddersfield Town player – said: “Michael will be in the area filming in the coming days and weeks.”

A great deal of location filming will be done in Marsden, Slaithwaite and the Holme Valley.
