Nighty Night stars

Nighty Night Bude

The north Cornwall resort of Bude appears in the new series of Nighty Night. The BBC Three programme spent seven weeks in and around Bude filming various scenes which can be seen during September.

The popular comedy series Nighty Night returns to the screen in September, and don't be surprised if you recognise some of the scenery during the programme.

The BBC team from the show spent seven weeks over the summer filming various scenes for the new series which begins in September.

Angus Deayton

Julia Davis heads the impressive cast in Nighty Night. It is a dark comedy/drama series which she wrote for the BBC. Angus Deayton stars as the unfortunate next door neighbour.

The series could be described as a West Country version of Fatal Attraction. It centres on Jill, a woman with an obsession, who is the co-owner of a suburban beauty salon. She has other things on her mind, though, namely the handsome doctor who lives in the house opposite with his wife, a wheelchair user...

Jill claims her hospitalised husband is dying of a terminal illness and so descends on the life of the unfortunate couple… and refuses to leave.  

The first series was one of BBC3's most popular comedies and a second series was commissioned.

Bude features in the new Nighty Night series

The first episode of the new series can be seen on Tuesday 6 September 2005, and is repeated on Wednesday 7 and Saturday 10 September.

“It has been a pleasure and a privilege to film in North Cornwall, a fact I shall be passing on to producer and other location managers in London and around the country," says Jason Wheeler, Location Manager for Baby Cow Productions who produced Nighty Night.

"Whilst it is said to be a dangerous thing to try and predict what is around the corner in the film industry, one thing I can say with complete confidence: our stay in Bude and North Cornwall has certainly had an impact on the future holiday plans for many of the crew!"

Follow the story and enjoy views of north Cornwall on BBC Three. The series begins on Tuesday 6 September and runs throughout the Autumn.
