Tim and Siddy are back for another series of tube geekery.
Last year’s Secrets of the London Underground TV show was an utter joy for fans of the tube. Presenters Tim Dunn and Siddy Holloway got privileged access to some of the network’s little-known tunnels, platforms and archives, revealing a few secrets that even veteran tube explorers wouldn’t know.
The first series was Yesterday TV’s biggest ever hit, so it’s no surprise to learn that the duo were commissioned for a second run. This time round, they’ve been granted 10 episodes, four more than last time.
The line up sounds mouth-watering. Episodes will cover such topics as the long-closed Mark Lane, King William Street and Marlborough Road stations, the Greenwich Power Station built to supply electricity to the tube, and the abandoned bits of Charing Cross that are now used as a film set. Ian Visits has the complete episode breakdowns.
The show starts its 10-part run on Yesterday TV on Thursday 5 May at 8pm. Yesterday TV is a Freeview channel, readily found on any digital set. If you can’t watch live, the episodes should appear on the UKTV streaming app, which is free to use and contains Tim’s other series The Architecture the Railways Built (highly recommended).
If you like this kind of thing, check out our own Secrets of the Underground series on YouTube, brilliantly presented by Geoff Marshall. (If you don’t like this kind of thing, watch it anyway and we’ll change your mind.)
