Filming on A Saucer Full of Secrets in Vegas’s native St Helens wrapped on Wednesday. According to the local newspaper, the St Helens Reporter, the comedian shot scenes with a cow at Siding Lane Country Park, ‘before realising an alien spacecraft [was] approaching over the treetops. The scene involved a huge mobile platform that projected the alien “landing lights” down onto the park’s grassed area.’ The pilot was a co-production between the BBC in Manchester and Steve Coogan's production company Baby Cow, who made Ideal, The Mighty Boosh and Gavin and Stacey. It was written and directed by the Ideal team of Graham Duff and Ben Wheatley. Sheila Hancock, Roy Hudd and Daisy Haggard co-star in the pilot, which is named after Pink Floyd's second studio album. The news comes as the BBC also announced V Sign, another sci-fi comedy pilot about an alien invasion, this one shot in Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland. [More at site... ] Listen to 'Strange Days...
