Doctor in the House - I feel pretty certain this is Tottenham Court Road at Goodge Street Underground and that the street with the Express Dairy on the corner is Tottenham Street. Roy Barnacle.

dh005n. Got it! Roy Barnacle gave me the clue, but the station is Euston Square in Gower Street. The houses are those on the left of dh002a. The doorway is what was the medical bookshop H.K. Lewis, now part of UCL. The scaffolded building in the background is on Euston Road. The 'now' shot is from a slightly different angle because of the large sign. This Express Dairy site on Gower Place seems to have been pulled down shortly after the film was made, and its replacement building pulled down and rebuilt very recently, but the bus, though now a bendy one, is still a 73.

dh006an. Well, I said Gower Street and I was wrong. But I turned two corners and found this, in Tavistock Square. I'm not actually convinced this is the right terrace, but it must be the twin of the right one, probably now demolished. Adrian. (Seems pretty good to me - JT.)
