Filming spotlights Oak Bay Ave

Gourmet Detective is back for its second shoot in Oak Bay.

Production of the new Gourmet Detective episode continues as it runs into its second week of filming in Oak Bay.

The film crew later relocated near Trafalgar Park for its next set of scenic shots.

“We love Oak Bay,” said Paul Russell, location manager for the Hallmark production, which is into its fourth episode since the series began in 2014, The Gourmet Detective is about a culinary whiz who uses his mastery of food, drink and cooking to solve crimes of the culinary world.

Much of the original cast is back, including Dylan Neal, Brooke Burns, Matthew Kevin Anderson, among several other actors from Vancouver and B.C.

Coming on board for this episode is Bruce Boxleitner, best known for his role as Alan Bradley, aka, Tron, from the 1982 Disney classic Tron, where he played alongside Jeff Bridges (Kevin Flynn) in their adventures throughout the digital world. Boxleitner reprised his role briefly in 2010’s sequel, Tron: Legacy.

Hallmark is keeping a tight wrap around what will go down in the new Gourmet Detective episode, but one thing’s for sure; expect to see a lot more of Oak Bay and familiar areas such as Metchosin and East Sooke in the scenery.

Earlier in July, the production team donated $21,000 to Victoria Hospice.
