  • Tower Bridge in TV Programmes

    billy farmer's original Tower Bridge thread on the old forum covered both films and television programmes, but as a film one has already been opened, I'll put this one here:

    Tower Bridge appeared in the Only Fools And Horses episode Ashes To Ashes, Del and Rodney make an unsuccessful attempt at scattering ashes on the River Thames from a rowing boat.

            Britain's Greatest Bridgess01e02 Tower Bridge (2016) [Channel 5]

            There may some question as to why this entry exists since it is a documentary rather than a drama but it is still a tv series episode that includes at least ONE scene showing the Tower Bridge:

            https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6194752/

            For once no image(s) need to be included since the entire episode is on the Tower Bridge (including glimpses which appear in the opening credits). First shown on October 21, 2016.

            Quoting the narrator starting at 00:01:00 (and backed up by the obligatory stirring music):

            "In the heart of London there's a unique monument - Tower Bridge. The most famous bridge in the world, and a true British icon. Completed in 1894, almost 65 meters high, and spanning 268 meters across the river Thames. London's only opening bridge has become an international symbol of Britain and it's capital.

              There's an episode of The Goodies in which, if I've remembered the storyline correctly, Bill, as a journalist lamenting that he can't find a scoop, walk part various newsworthy events, one of which is Tower Bridge collapsing.

                With reference to ghughesarch's post (10th March 2019, 09:15 PM #7) it was the The Goodies s05e10 Cunning Stunts - Fleet Street Goodies episode - and the above mentioned scene ran from 00:01:57 - 00:02:06.

                  Dr. Who s01e04 Aliens of London (2005)

                  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0562985/

                  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aliens_of_London

                  When reminiscing about her adventure with the Doctor Rose sadly comments: "I've seen all that stuff up there - the size of it and I can't say a word. Aliens and spaceships and things - and I'm the only person on planet Earth that knows they exist." Just then a large and very noisy (the oversized truck horn blasts are a nice touch) out of control alien spacecraft thunders by low overhead, careers past the Tower Bridge (which appears from 00:06:24-00:06:34), side swipes Big Ben and finally crashes into the Thames. And then the situation gets really hectic!
