relav001. Thompson and Andrews enjoy Manx sunshine: this is The Nunnery (I love end credits) just outside Douglas, Isle of Man, on the Old Castletown Road.
relav001n. Also seen in Chromophobia and Stormbreaker. This is thanks to Wiki and will have to do until we obtain an original photograph. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 30-01-2012)
relav002. Firth and Andrews outside the stately pile.
relav003. Fry greets Atterton and Tripplehorn.
relav004. Dogs out of control in front of The Nunnery, once owned by Robert Sangster and now by the IoM International Business School.
relav004n. Not a bad matching angle, found on a google image search. Again it is hoped that an original will replace this as soon as possible. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 30-01-2012)
relav005. Baldwin meets Andrews while Firth appears aloof. Nice pool rather tucked away in the corner.
relav006. Baldwin is a much loved star: love the 50s look to the cameras and hats. I think these gates may be set dressing.
relav007. Baldwin and Tripplehorn by the pool.
relav008. Fans pursue Baldwin and Tripplehorn.
relav009. A church nearby.
