Dir: Morten Tyldum
Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley
During World War II, the English mathematical genius Alan Turing tries to crack the German Enigma code with help from fellow mathematicians
This American historical drama was loosely based on the 1983 biography Alan Turing: The Enigma by Andrew Hodges and features scenes at King’s Cross station with maroon-liveried BR Mk1s and much smoke and steam but no locomotives. As with other wartime dramas, Aldwych Underground station appears as an air raid shelter. There are also brief scenes filmed onboard a Mk1, but the distant aerial shot of a steam train passing through the wooded countryside looks likely to be foreign judging by its headlamp.
