life001. The European Space Research Centre in London, where an alien found during a space shuttle mission to Halley's Comet has been brought to. Victor Grayson identifies this as Barnet House on High Road, Whetstone N20 which is known locally as Ever Ready House. Victor adds that "It might not be recognisable for much longer as there are plans to convert the building into flats and radically alter the exterior".
life001n. And Victor Grayson matches the capture with this image. (Modern Photo Added: 22-07-2017)
life002. The gates of fictional Thurlstone Hospital, a psychiatric unit where the alien is being held.
life003. Doctor Armstrong (Patrick Stewart) makes his way to the helicopter that's just landed in the grounds of the Yorkshire hospital. IMDB lists The Royal Masonic School in Bushey, Hertfordshire as a location.
life004. Is this a set, or is it Christchurch in Hampshire where the street scenes were reportedly filmed? Greg Chapman advises that his dear friend Aubrey Morris took photos that show that this is indeed a set which was built on the back-lot at Thorn-EMI Studios in Borehamwood. Sadly the area where the set stood is now beneath the car park of the Tesco Superstore.
