Christmas TV

A 70s blast

I recognise the two shots above. I walk past this building (the Institute of Education) on my way to the British Museum once a week. There is coffee shop on the ground floor. There is no phone box in that spot in the real world. The building is a great piece of Brutalist architecture. The outer staircase, used in the Little Drummer Girl’w final episode, is my favourite aspect.

Tin Star

I love this shot from Tin Star. There was no real need in the story line for this scene but the producers put it in anyway. Local art and phone boxes create powerful images.

 

Down in the basement

It seems odd that in some deep basement in a fictional Gotham there is a real UK phone box lurking in the background:

The return of Twin Peaks

‘Person of Interest’ my have ended but ‘Twin Peaks’ made a return, bringing the surreal mind of David Lynch to the small screen again – you were expecting weird but perhaps not this weird. I don’t know if the screen shot below is an alternative universe or what (created from atomic rage??) but glad to see a phone box features:

Finale

I finally watched the finale of ‘Person of Interest‘. Of course there were a couple of important phone shots that I recorded for posterity. I’m going to miss this show…
