Lord of Letherbridge
We had another fine British actor on set recently. Roger Ashton-Griffiths filmed scenes for an episode that aired on Monday 9th November. In this episode Roger played Dr Plumridge, Al's old mentor.
For those of you who watch Game of Thrones you will recognise Roger as Lord Mace Tyrell; Lord of Highgarden and head of the House of Tyrell.
TV legends in Letherbridge
We were delighted to have had two TV legends on set with us this week.
Tim Brooke-Taylor (The Goodies, Me and My Girl, Heartbeat) and Michael Jayston (Doctor Who, Emmerdale, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) were filming scenes alongside Adrian Lewis Morgan (Dr Jimmi Clay) and actress Lois Baxter for a brilliant episode that aired on Friday 6th November.
