26_18_011a. This is probably the closest in similarity to the original, located at the eastern end of the dual-carriageway section of London Wall, just past the pedestrian over-bridge adjacent to City Tower.


SCRIPT

The car drives between a collection of skyscrapers.

THOMAS passes a bus.

Track in as the bus stops and THOMAS drives on.

THOMAS relaxes as he drives, camera tracking ahead of him.

He picks up the microphone and speaks into it. 

THOMAS

Blue four-three-nine. Blue four-three-nine. Over. 

OPERATOR off

Blue one-two-six. Go ahead please. Over. 

THOMAS

Hello, this is… uh… Get me Flaxman six-one-seven-seven. Mister Walker, Peter Walker. Tell him I’ve seen the junk shop. It’s a bit pricey but the kid’ll come down. Tell him to ring her straight away, then nobody else’ll get it. 

OPERATOR off

Roger. Wilco. Stand by. 

THOMAS puts the receiver back.

The car turns into another street.
