Here's even more question and answer fun with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright.

sandford asked "any message for the people of Sandford? This place is talking about nothing else, from 5 years old to 95 they all cant wait to see your movie"; Simon replied "is that the real Sandford, Gloucester? because we based the town on the fictional village used in police training".
