On Monday this week, there were a whole lot of trucks and a pile of people in Town working on the filming for Murdoch Mysteries. There were two filming locations: the West Beach and Third Street adjacent to Victoria Hall. The parking lot on Second Street was reserved for the filming team, Third Street was closed from King to Albert and the West Beach Boardwalk was “closed”.
Residents were in fact allowed to go on the boardwalk but would be asked to wait and not intrude during actual filming. Photos below give an idea of the activity. Hopefully some of the businesses in Town benefited, e.g. the restaurants. West Beach filming featured a horse, an old car and a temporary backdrop. Unlike earlier filming, it was the side and back of Victoria Hall that was used – not the front.
