Sandown’s Broadway Centre, Los Altos Park and The Heights are being used as the backdrop for the filming of a forthcoming TV adaptation of Nicholas Blake’s The Beast Must Die.
The BritBox series will be shown over 5 episodes at some point next year. The series will star Jared Harris, Cush Jumbo, Billy Howle, Nathaniel Parker, Geraldine James, Maeve Dermody and newcomers Mia Tomlinson and Barney Sayburn.
Town Mayor Gary Young said:
“The Town Council were really supportive of this project, and when aired will show Sandown, and the Island, as the stunning location that it is.
“We are glad we could help this production, and we look forward to seeing it in 2021 – it has already generated considerable local and national interest”.
Deputy Mayor Paul Brading added:
“The production has also provided opportunities for local actors and businesses, and hopefully will attract other TV and Film opportunities in the future”.
As previously reported by Island Echo, filming has been taking place on Brading Downs overlooking Sandown Bay this week.
