Default OVP in a movie!

Just been looking through the history of OVP, and noticed that in addition to the programs mentioned in the thread, It was also in the movie "The Inspector Lynley Mysteries: A Traitor to Memory"

Here's a still.

Excellent, I didn't know that. Have you watched the entire episode? Does it feature a few times or just in that one shot?

I'll see if I can find it on DVD to add to the library of appearances it has made on screen

You should edit all the appearances the car makes into one compilation Paul, I'm sure that would be a hit

Perhaps a duet with the Midsomer Murders 75

I haven't I'm afraid, I just noticed that picture whist browsing the web.

I may get it if I can find it.

Here's the trailer for the film. 1 shot shows a police spec 75, so could be OVP.

And a picture. Again no number plate, but possible?

Judging from the wheel trims, I'd be surprised if it wasn't OVP - good spot .

Completely forgot to spin the discs to be honest. I must have a binge watch over a weekend when the family aren’t monopolising the TV
