Eagle-eyed television viewers may have spotted Hemel Hempstead’s Old Town during a bank holiday evening drama.

A repeat of The Scapegoat, based on Daphne du Maurier’s 1957 novel of the same, was shown on ITV on Sunday night.

The High Street was visible in some outdoor scenes of the two-hour film, which first aired in September.

Star Sheridan Smith, who has also filmed in the town for Mr Stink, shot some of the Old Town scenes in 2011.
