Because of its Sunday closures, the Waterloo & City has become a well-established and convenient location for filming, not least because in the days of British Rail (and predecessor) ownership, it could be used in the event of London Transport being either unable or unwilling to allow access to their stations or lines. It can be seen in the 1962 Norman Wisdom film ''On the Beat'' (complete with 1940 stock train); the second series of the BBC's ''Survivors'', representing various parts of the Central and Northern lines; and in the 1984 adaptation of ''The Tripods'', where it masquerades as Porte de la Chapelle station on the Paris Métro. It was also used in the 1998 Peter Howitt film ''Sliding Doors'', portraying Embankment and one other unknown station.
