A devastating flood strikes London when the Thames Barrier is overwhelmed by a huge surge of water

Based on the 2002 novel of the same name by Richard Doyle, this disaster movie features shots of Charing Cross and Canary Wharf Underground stations. The very clever use of computer generation shows people fleeing the catastrophic flood waters that engulf the tunnels. There are also some brief shots of 1996-built tube stock on CCTV sets.

The caption says this is Embankment station but in reality this is Charing Cross
A rare instance of a train on CCTV appearing in a movie. This is platform 3 at Charing Cross with a train of 1996 stock in the platform. All the doors are open as the train has been evacuated but the flood is in progress so why isn’t the tunnel underwater??
Most of the Underground shots are extremely brief though there is a sequence filmed at Charing Cross which has a little more substance. A small group arrive at the darkened station from one of the running tunnels.
It is interesting to see the station at Charing Cross on emergency lighting, but where is all the water?
Here it is. The tidal surge arrives at the station with some force. It’s time to get out fast.
