The boat that rocked?


Blackheath as a filming location? Several days were spent on scenes for “The Boat that Rocked” last year. It is supposed to be appearing in cinemas soon, and IMDB suggests the beginning of April. It looks like a reasonable idea for a comedy – based on the Radio Caroline pirate ship – maybe like an English Sixties version of Pump up the Volume? Anything that involves a slightly drunk looking Bill Nighy is probably worth the ticket price, even if Richard Curtis’ last few outings haven’t exactly left Blackadder in need of a cunning plan.

I couldn’t spot any Blackheath in the trailer. Will Philip Seymour Hoffman be nipping to a 1960s version of Shepherd Foods for some light refreshment? We shall find out…
