Dir: Nick Hurran
Starring: Rik Mayall and Imelda Staunton
A middle class suburban family find their lives thrown into a crisis with the unexpected arrival of one of the wife’s old flames
This underrated and forgotten comedy was filmed somewhere in the Surrey suburbia and there are some middle-distant shots of passing Class 455 EMU’s throughout. The exact location of these shots is not known, but the family house in the film is said to be in West Byfleet. Towards the end of the film there are a couple of scenes that feature the railway bridge outside Thames Ditton station with Class 455’s crossing. The big two arch structure across Station Road does in fact form a roundabout with Embercourt Road, Speer Road, Station Road and Weston Green Road.
