My Favourite Tube Station

Bryant and May

I blew them up in it, then moved them out, but it’s still a great little building. Now elderly detectives Arthur Bryant & John May are leaving their offices above Mornington Crescent tube station (pictured below) as the unit is closed down for good…but where will they go?
For the benefit of overseas readers, I should explain that locating the Peculiar Crimes Unit above Mornington Crescent station was an apposite joke, as ‘Mornington Crescent’ also refers to a bafflingly complex game involving tube stations, the joke being that although the rules are often explained on the show ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’, the game itself does not exist, a fact it is part of the joke to deny. (Look, I’m English, nothing is ever straightforward)

    Doesn’t Bryant enumerate his many skills in White Corridor and include his ability to play the Mornington Crescent game without cheating?

    Clearly, things are less clear than previously seen.

    Reading the above sentence may put me in a position dangerously close to being declared English…

    You made the photo clickable so it can be bigger. Thanks!! Oi, when I get to England One Of These Days, part of my pilgrimmage will be to that! And they better let me in! I’ll bring food for Bryant’s cat!

    Whilst down in London last September I was secretly so pleased that a trip to Camden was planned & suggested we use Mornington Crescent instead of the nearer tube! My friend thought I was daft but as it was a Madonna trip was somewhat mollified we saw Koko as well ;o)
