Exploring the impact of Hot Fuzz movie on perception of Wells
People of Sandford, can you help someone with their enquiries?
No, it's not Sergeant Nicholas Angel investigating another multiple homicide in a sequel to the 2007 hit film Hot Fuzz, which was filmed largely in Wells.
Instead, it is former Cathedral School pupil Jenny Owen, who needs help for her final year project at Cardiff University.
As part of her Geography (Human) and Planning course Jenny is exploring the impact of Hot Fuzz and the fictional town of Sandford on residents' perceptions of Wells.

Jenny said: "Being a big fan of the film I came up with the idea to study its impact on residents.
"My dissertation is different to research that has been done before because I am focussing on how the film has impacted residents directly, rather than studying the impact tourism generated by the film has had on residents."
To help with her research Jenny has created an online survey for people to complete. Respondents will be asked how the film has affected their perception of Wells and if they think of Hot Fuzz when they see certain things.
Directed by former Blue School pupil Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Timothy Dalton, Hot Fuzz made more than $80 million worldwide in cinema sales alone.
It tells the story of a London police officer who is transferred to a small town and uncovers a conspiracy of murder, the neighbourhood watch and escaped swans.
It has become a cult hit and even features on Wells walking tours.
