A married couple who no longer have sex are left with unanswered questions when the wife mysteriously becomes pregnant

This drama doesn’t quite succeed with what could have been a promising story and it really is rather disappointing. It features one scene filmed from the footbridge at the end of St Margarets station near Twickenham, with a pair of Class 458 ‘Juniper’ EMUs moving off into the distance. The footbridge connects Amyands Park Road with Drummonds Place, but does not give access to the station. In the film, Idris Elba plays the role of a track maintenance worker, and there are a couple of scenes filmed at the Colas Rail track training facility in Purley. A Southern Class 377 and Class 455 EMU are visible in these shots, the latter in extreme closeup, whilst the platforms of Purley station can be made out in the far background to another.

A Southern Class 377 ‘Electrostar’ heads away from the camera in this view filmed in Purley. The footbridge is for staff use only and leads from the track maintenance training facility in the background, to the station, which is behind the camera. The EMU is running on the down slow whilst the fast lines are on the opposite side of the fence on the right.
Idris Elba stands on the footbridge seen in the above shot. Part of Purley station can be seen creeping into the upper left background. The tracks curving away behind him serve the Caterham and Tattenham Corner branches whilst those to his left form the slow lines to Redhill.
This view of trackworkers is unusual in that it was actually filmed at the Colas Rail track training facility close to Purley station. The training centre is sandwiched between the tracks of the Tattenham Corner branch and the main lines to Redhill and Brighton.
