The presence of the 80 strong crew and cast of Spooks is promising to boost the Manx profile in the Industry and help the local economy.
Filming today continues in and around Douglas for a major feature film based on the BBC spy drama.
The production, which also involves Island-based crew and extras, has been secured through the Manx government's tie-up with Pinewood studios in the UK.
