Dir: Debbie Tucker Green
Starring: Idris Elba and Nadine Marshall

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, and a pair of Class 458 ‘Juniper’ EMUs can be seen in the background. 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 several shots whilst the platforms of Purley station can be seen in the far background to another.

Viewed through the lattice work of the public footpath that crosses the western end of St. Margaret’s station, a Class 458 EMU heads towards Twickenham.
This is the footbridge, for staff use only, that leads from the track maintenance training facility at Purley, to the station
