Yesterday filming took place at White Rock and in the Pig’s Paradise pub.

The drama, by screenwriter David Hare, stars Hugh Laurie as Peter Laurence, a self-made Conservative minister. Charismatic and self-interested, Peter is hit by a series of public revelations about his private life and his work as a minister. However, he is untroubled by guilt as he attempts to out-run his enemies and his past, with his eyes on the ultimate political prize.
