Ep.2.06. "The Removal Men"

The story is meant to be on Cote d'Azur (french riviera), but except this picture, there are not any scene played outside, all are in studio. I doubt the producers had shot this scene in France...therefore, this Citroen might be a Slough built.
As it is a long base model, with boot it can't be nothing else than a Six Cylinder

There's also been the 1953+ Big Fifteen, the British version of the French 11 B (Normale), though the Light Fifteen (11 BL) was by far more popular.

In "75 years of CitroŽn in the U.K - From A to X" by John Reynolds (1998), p. 114, there are two pics of a Light Fifteen with long boot (license plate PPP 276). 1026 post-war Big Fifteens were made, and 1225 post-war Sixes. I couldn't find the exact production numbers of the Light Fifteen, but those will be approximately 3000. In September 1952 the price of the Light Fifteen was £1067, and the Big Fifteen cost £1152.

Thank's Mike. Therefore it might be a Fifteen either? ... 1953?

Yep, both are possible. And I agree that this is most probably a British Traction, not a French one (by the light colour and the big hubcaps).
