In today’s update, the rescue!

The lucky thing about London from a storytelling point of view is that there’s so much of it under the ground. It’s no Prague, it wasn’t ratcheted up a layer on stilts like a car getting its MOT, but the sheer sedimentary weight of history is more than enough to give us writers some wonderful settings to unearth. Reportedly there’s a Roman cemetery in the Gherkin’s basement. That doesn’t sound ominous at all.
