A PURBECK beauty spot will be starring in an upcoming episode of a new sci-fi series.

Filming for the episode of Electric Dreams took place in Kimmeridge over two days in April.

Fans of the Channel 4 show will recognise Kimmeridge Bay and the well-known landmark Clavell Tower in this Sunday’s episode: Crazy Diamond – the fourth in the 10-part series based on the short stories of Philip K Dick.

The cast features Boardwalk Empire star Steve Buscemi who plays an average man called Ed Morris who is approached by a beautiful synthetic woman called Jill (Sidse Babett Knudsen).

According to the episode synopsis, Ed agrees to help Jill carry out an illegal plan that sees his world crumble.

A large-scale set was built at Kimmeridge Bay over several weeks for Crazy Diamond. The large, cylindrical construction features in the episode’s trailer.

Last week’s episode, The Commuter, featured another Dorset location. 

Timothy Spall, whose film credits include the Harry Potter series and The King’s Speech, played train station employee Ed Jacobson who was transported to a seemingly perfect town called Macon Heights. 

Filming took place in Poundbury in March.Other stars in the anthology

series include Janelle Monae, Anne Reid, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard and Richard Madden.

Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston is an executive producer on the show and features in one of the episodes.

The first episode of the series, The Hood Maker, was aired on Channel 4 on Sunday, September 17. The final four stories will be broadcast in early 2018.

Channel 4 chief creative officer, Jay Hunt, said Philip K Dick’s short stories had shaped “iconic Hollywood films”, from Blade Runner to Minority Report.

“Electric Dreams will adapt and modernise his singular vision for a TV audience.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the talented team at Sony Pictures Television on an anthology series that brings together global stars of the calibre of Bryan Cranston and Ronald D Moore.”
