Did any of you know that there are a few reoccurring tv series based out of Oxford? Today I was grabbing lunch off of Turl Street and I saw a bunch of police cars and people gathered round this little side street. I thought there was an accident of some sort being covered by the news (which would have been odd), but low and behold, all the fuss and cameras were for a scene of a police drama called Lewis! I was told by the locals that it's in its last season and that it's a bit of low-action series full of high brow cultural references. I talked with some of the extras and they were telling me about their other jobs on shows like Downtown Abbey. Very interesting people! Watching the main stars was kind of fun as well because they were wearing sunglasses and asking for cigarettes and making an abnormal amount of phone calls in their time between takes. It's strange to see someone, not knowing they're famous, but seeing them act out in their stardom. Have you guys seen anything along these lines around Oxford?
