As a few people have mentioned it to me I thought I’d do a piece about the filming that’s been going on in and around Hoylake over the last month or so.
As far as I know the BBC is filming a new comedy for BBC4 entitled Puppy Love and this is the blurb from the BBC:
Puppy Love is a story of love, dogs and the love of dogs. It is written by and stars Jo Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine, the creators of the BAFTA and RTS award-winning Getting On.
The show is set around Wirral-based dog training classes run by the formidable Nana V – “For All Your Dogging Needs”.
Puppy Love follows two very different women – Nana V and Naomi Singh as they navigate their headstrong dogs, impossible teenage kids and disappointing husbands.
The BBC’s Shane Allen says: “Puppy Love both celebrates and sends up the deeply held relationship between dogs and their owners. This is a real passion piece from Jo and Vicki who have yet again succeeded in creating a wonderful set of characters.”
Directed by Susan Tully (remember her in Grange Hill?).
I saw some the film crew the other day outside the lifeboat station and as you can see from the photo above they’ve also filmed outside the vets on the main road. You’ll have probably seen their trailers parked up in the car park behind Morrisons in Dee Lane, West Kirby too.
My mother-in-law reckons Liverpudlian Margi Clarke is one of the cast too …though she doesn’t appear to be listed in the cast list.
