Spooks Prop Spooks Passenger


An oil drum stuffed with wires and other highly realistic bomb paraphernalia caused problems near Deptford train station last week. A hawk-eyed passenger spotted the suspect barrel in a yard close to the station, and rightly alerted authorities. But, and you'll have guessed this from the headline, the drum turned out to be a prop from popular BBC drama Spooks. Around a dozen Southeastern trains were delayed by the subsequent investigation, some for up to 40 minutes. The show, whose cast change more frequently than a weekend Tube traveller negotiating line closures, is largely filmed in Bermondsey studios close to the station.
