Sherlock Holmes Feature film from the streets of Caernarfon

Last September a few streets in Caernarfon were dressed as the early 1900's to film the feature length Sherlock Holmes. Quite a few local actors from the Clic Agency took part in the filming including William Huw as Inspector LeStrade, Dylan Jones as Grolton, Simon Lloyd-Roberts (as a Buckingham Palace Soldier), Iago McGuire (Lees), Neill Scullard as Captain of the Guards and Katie Thomas as a lady of the night!  Also from the Clic Agency – Rachael Evelyn travelled from Yorkshire to Caernarfon to play the part of Miss Hudson. Numerous supporting artistes also had smaller parts, some with a few lines, where they had great fun running away from pretend monsters that were trying to attack them.  These were all local as well and included Tara Lee, Rachel Williams, Karl Bohana, Natasha Pritchard, Rob Pritchard, Perl Williams, Alison Povey, Terry and Sandra Jackson, Cheryl Williams, Osian Williams, Gwion Williams, Denis Jones, Dylan and Iwan Pritchard. Dilwyn Parry Jones had to lay still for around an hour as he was dressed as a corpse of an old fisherman!! Neil Williams from Caernarfon played a traumatised Midshipman Phineas Stiles after seeing his HMS crew being attacked by sea monsters.

Some local crew also had great experience as they helped out in various departments to include Cel Jones, Dewi Williams, Andrew Griffiths, Mark Humphreys and Dilwyn Parry  Jones. Some filming also took part at the Faenol Estate, the Welsh Slate Museum, the Dinorwig Quarry Hospital and Gwydir Castle as well as Church Island in Menai Bridge.

Ben Syder, originally from Prestatyn, played the famous sleuth Sherlock, with Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto from Torchwood) played his friend and chronicler Dr. Watson. Dominic Keating (Heroes) plays the nemesis Spring-Heeled Jack that starts a monster attack on the City of London. Sherlock and Watson track down the criminal before he takes over the world.

The film has received very good reviews to include this one from Videoviews

“Easily one of their better films filled with action, adventure, fantasy and humor. If you enjoy Sherlock Holmes I suggest giving this one a shot. The Asylum seems to just get better and better with their effects and the story here is a perfect match as well. The DVD comes with a "Making of Featurette" which gives you a good look at behind the scenes”

You can order a copy of the DVD from Asylum website today but it will only be available in the UK from the end of March.
