    Unfortunately the first story is supposed to be set in London and anyone who has been there knows they do not have Connex Trams, yellow taxi cabs or the same architecture! A little bit too obvious! I even spotted a house I used to rent in Fitzroy! I guess who ever produced the show assumed the audience were a little inept!
