    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 Bridges" (2016-) [Channel 5]

            In particular (s01e02) "Tower Bridge".

            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.
