I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to get back on to reply, my work blocked this website from use (I'm a teacher so I suppose beer is not the best topic for some reason...)
The verdict is still unclear.... I think it was a combination of temperature and to my surprise using a dishwasher.... I found out a few weeks back that my in laws put close almost 100 of my bottles in their dishwasher before giving them back to me..... I think some of the film may have remained on the bottles. The problem is, I don't know which bottles they were as they have since been reused for new batches.
I had two batches carbonate after putting them in a small area of my house with an electric heater for a week, but they have a strange (not necessarily bad) off taste that has not been there in the past. We'll see how some of my future batches turn out.
