A man who has been in a coma for 30 years is revived
This scientific drama is based on Charles Eric Maine’s 1961 novel of the same name and features a three-car Class 117 DMU arriving at Bourne End in its final year of operation as a through station. A blue & grey Mk.1 coach is visible in the old Marlow bay platform. There are then scenes filmed onboard the DMU and another lineside shot of a similar unit coming to an emergency stop on a single track line, almost certainly the Maidenhead-High Wycombe line. In the film, Bourne End masquerades as ‘Tilfield East’.
