"The area has changed quite a bit since 1980, with a car park and hospital entrance now replacing the area the stakeout van was parked next to the cottage. However, the church like building and the red tiled building opposite are still there today, but are enclosed together with a modern looking building."

DEPARTMENT S: The Duplicated Man

I’ve got another location for that episode - that of the antique shop. Because of the editing it looks on screen like it’s Flask Walk but it’s actually on the other side of the High Street at Perrin’s Court. You can see The Spinning Wheel restaurant on the other side of the Lotus:

which was also seen in the film Les Bicyclettes De Belsize and was at number 10 Perrins Ct. Also, when the Russian agents leave you can see that there’s a link between the two sides of the road at first floor level:

....which Flask Walk doesn’t have. Department S move off from Flask Walk as the address can be seen above the blue doorway:

but the end of the road doesn’t have that linking:

25th October – Another great piece of observation from Geoff Dodd whilst watching RETURN OF THE SAINT: One Black September. "Templar is looking in his mirror to see if they’re being followed, just before he accelerates through the lights at Hamilton Terrace, NW8. These shots were taken on Elgin Avenue, W9 near the junction with Lauderdale Road and judging by the pictures, they went in both directions. The second one is where he’s following the school bus and is on Harmood Street, NW1, passing the Camden Centre for Learning. You can see the distinctive ‘Girls’ gate which still survives."

JASON KING: Every Picture Tells a Story

     

Hong Kong Harbour, across Causeway Bay

At two o'clock on this picture some of the buildings match, particularly the ones up the hill which are still there.

 

On the right of your picture you can see two long and short buildings end-to-end. The cathedral appears from behind on the far right. To the left of all this is Government House surrounded by greenery.

I'm not sure how you'd describe this. Panning west from Central?

 

Also SHIRLEY'S WORLD: Figuratively Speaking



Hong Kong & Kowloon Wharf & Godown Company in big letters is along Gateway Blvd

Admittedly tiny, but you can make out the central building here on the left.

405 (San Diego Fwy) - We're heading north o. This first sign gives the instruction for Santa Monica, while 0.8 miles further up is a sign giving us the slip road to the Imperial Highway. The actual location is likely to be the second one.

23rd February -
I can't express how impressed I am with Phil Brown's detective work in tracking down this location.

DEPARTMENT S: The Pied Piper Of Hambledown  - Tilbury Docks, Tilbury, Essex

Phil Brown: "If you study these images, you may detect that these are in fact two different vessels - note the superstructure around the stern of each.

 

"This is the P&O cargo liner; MV Strathbrora newly built in 1967, one of three sister vessels known as the "Super Straths”. It was basically a cargo vessel which could accommodate a small number of fare paying passengers - usually on a one way ticket.

 

"Although this vessel appears to belong to the same shipping line, it is not. This is the MV Arlanza one of the last vessels operated by the Royal Mail Lines. It too was a cargo liner as described above. Both Strathbrora and Arlanza operated from Tilbury Docks in London, so this is almost certainly the location you are seeking and where the film unit captured this footage."
