Kent Location: The Historic Dockyard Chatham

New Channel 4 comedy about Steven Toast (Matt Berry), an eccentric middle-aged actor with a chequered past who spends more time dealing with his problems off stage than performing on it.

This new sitcom is written by Arthur Mathews (Father Ted, Big Train) and starring Matt Berry (The IT Crowd, Snow White and the Huntsman), Robert Bathurst (Downton Abbey, Cold Feet) and Doon Mackichan (Plebs).

In the fourth episode of the series, Toast gets a job doing the voiceover for commands on board the Navy’s ships and is then invited to the launch of a refitted submarine where the production visited The Historic Dockyard Chatham to film on the HMS Cavalier  which doubled as the submarine. 

The Historic Dockyard Chatham is set over 80 acres, containing over 100 buildings dating from the Georgian and Victorian Periods and it is a popular film location having previously welcomed Downton Abbey (2013), Les Miserables (2013) and Great Expectations (2012.)

Don’t miss Toast of London which will be shown on Sunday 10th November 2013 at 22:35 on Channel 4.
