Filming on the Tube

Hot Fuzz and Passenger

TfL are waxing lyrical about parts of
The Good Shepherd being shot on the Tube. If you've seen it or plan to TfL say "look out for the scenes featuring Matt Damon and Michael Gambon in an Underground station (Aldwych) which is doubling up as an air raid shelter ......The design team from Universal Pictures took a couple of weeks to create the set to make the station look like a 1940s station being used as an air raid shelter..... Filming was complete within two days. And within a week, it was as if they’d never been.’

Hot Fuzz trailer

Marc spotted that the trailer for Hot Fuzz features a miserable looking Simon Pegg in a tube carriage. As I've not seen straphangers like that for quite some time, I'm presuming it was filmed in a set or at the London Transport Museum. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

Also perhaps you can identify which disused station was used for this video "Wicked Man's Rest" from the band Passenger.

Stewart B sent this to me and it looks very similar to the tunnel in the Prodigy's Firestarter which was filmed at Aldwych.
