Starring: Agyness Deyn and Christian Cooke

After hearing he may be alive, a young epileptic girl goes to London in search of her brother whom she had thought was dead

This quite extraordinary drama is based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Ray Robinson and should be sought out for its ambitious cimematic approach if for nothing else. It features a dream sequence filmed largely at Haymarket station on the Tyne & Wear Metro system in Newcastle, though footage of an unidentified London Underground station has been blended in. There is a train journey to London that features various brief images of window views and equally brief glimpses of King’s Cross station, where East Coast-liveried Mk3 coaching stock is present. The frontages to both King’s Cross and St Pancras stations also feature in this sequence and in a later scene, there is a shot of the platforms at London Euston station with a Class 221 ‘Super Voyager’ DEMU and a Class 390 ‘Pendolino’ EMU just visible. The scenes at Haymarket feature Tyne & Wear Metro units as well as some shots filmed onboard.

The dream sequence filmed on the Metro system merges with this scene filmed at an unknown station on London’s Underground, possibly the Northern Line
If shots of the Tyne & Wear Metro are rare, then scenes filmed onboard the units are even rarer. Here, Agyness Deyn is captured sitting inside one of the Metro-Cammell built units.

Our actress cuts a lonely figure in this most unusual view of London Euston. Visible on the right is a Class 221 ‘Super Voyager’ DEMU, whilst the extreme front end of a Class 390 ‘Pendolino’ EMU is just visible on the left.
