A Touch Of Cloth

Wrapped with the famous Police stripes, our Rolls Royce Phantom took on an usual new look and exciting role as a police car recently for the recently aired TV programme ‘A Touch of cloth’.

Filming took place at Tower Hill at Trinity House and our luxury and usually sedate car was featured in a scene where the police commissioner jumps into our specially wrapped Rolls Royce Ghost, not what you would expect for such a prestigious car.

A Touch of Cloth is a British television comedy-drama series created and written by Charlie Brooker and Daniel Maier. It is a parody of British detective and crime dramas, with the plot based on a story by Messiah novelist Boris Starling.

A Touch of Cloth stars John Hannah and Suranne Jones, and features Julian Rhind-Tutt. The title is a play on another detective series, A Touch of Frost, as well as the vulgar British euphemism, “touching cloth.”

Witty, naughty and unashamedly silly – Charlie Brooker gives the British TV Detective genre a right good comedy kicking with this one-off special for Sky 1 HD.”, commented Lucy Lumsden, Head of Comedy, Sky Entertainment.

Charlie Brooker, co-writer, commented: “After you’ve seen A Touch of Cloth you’ll never be able to watch another detective show again. Not because it’s a devastating pisstake, but because you’ll have smashed your TV to pieces in a disappointed fury.” Daniel Maier, co-writer, commented: “It’s like Airplane! for a detective series except for not being Police Squad”.
