windmills A new windmill for Jonathan Creek

BBC1 broadcast a new Jonathan Creek mystery on New Years Day 2009, in which he was accompanied by a new sidekick. In addition, his windmill home, (long filmed at Shipley windmill, Sussex), was mentioned in the dialog a couple of times. However, the windmill that they showed (in a long shot only) was the windmill at Ibstone.

Ibstone windmill (familiar as the mill in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) is located on the hillside above the village of Turville - and I guess that since Turville is a regular BBC filming location (The Vicar of Dibley is filmed there for example) it made economic and logistical sense to make the switch.
