On the way to the room where the media and charity and political movers and shakers were, me and my colleague walked past Down Street. "Oh", I say, tube geek head screwed firmly on "This is where Down Street Tube station used to be. They still make films there occaisionally" (part of the BBC drama Neverwhere was filmed there), "Really," my colleague replied in a bored fashion. "It's amazing where these lost tube stations turn up", I prattled on. "Mmm", replied colleague, "So who else do you think will be there tonight?"
On the way home from room where charity and media and political movers and shakers were, I got to Hyde Park Corner tube and found a door in the platform of the tube which Neil Gaiman (author of Neverwhere) himself would have been proud of. A definite entrance into the mythical London Below where "real" Earls preside over Earl's Court and there are "real" black friars at Blackfriars and "real" knights at Knightsbridge.
Actually funkypancake took a very similar picture of a door at Bank Station. Where do these secret doors lead? And who has the keys to them?
