Episode 2: Waterloo and City

Summary

Tim Dunn and Siddy Holloway discover the hidden world of the Waterloo and City Line, the only line entirely underground

Review

The access that Tim Dunn and Siddy Holloway have to London’s underground is much better than having a Freedom Pass, terrific though that is. Locked doors, staff-entry only spots and disused tunnels — nothing stops this pair. They’re exploring the Waterloo and City line, which at 1.47 miles long is the shortest on the underground system, and they hear about how it was built under the Thames in 1898.

They also snoop around Mark Lane station, which closed in 1967. You’ve got to love their enthusiasm for all things underground. Walking along the track after hours, Tim even describes the cramped, dank tunnel as “cosy”.
