OOh just spotted Bermondsey Sq in tonight's Casino trick by Derren Brown on Channel 4 .
Just a few things ..How did the hypnotized guy get across Tower Bridge so easily without getting run over.I struggle at the best of times.
And how did he go to the Barclays on the corner to take out a huge sum of cash and manage to come out "a few minutes later'.Now I know they can use the power of time lapse on tv but surely it was more than a few minutes in that branch...More like half an hour!

Still it's nice to see SE1 On Tv again!

LOL! That Barclays branch is indeed rubbish 99% of the time! I've lost count of the number of times I've queued for 20+ minutes because they are under-staffed, and the staff they do have are seemingly milling around in the background! (ok, I'm sure it isn't "milling around" but it's frustrating to see them doing anything other than serve customers!)

I actually pass the time in the queue but writing in the complaints book - lol!

Ironically, I went in there the other day, and there was NO queue at all - maybe people have given up going in there! But that didn't stop the cashier thanking me for waiting!! Maybe it's just an automatic response now!

Either my Gaydar has developed a fault or maybe it's because he's so good at illusion but I had to be told that Derren is gay.

I didn't know he'd been in the area when I accused the Council of behaving like him when I started this thread: http://www.london-se1.co.uk/forum/read/1/116339. Perhaps I was more accurate than I realized!

I have an account with Barclays and if you want to take out 5000 in cash, you have to tell them before hand, so either Derren told them that this guys would be taking money out, or they had someone else in the bank, with the cash, and it wasn't actually his money anyway.

I saw this last night, and was impressed with the traffic speed part, and when he knew where the ball would end up in the squash court, but the actual casino bit was just a bit of a let down, in that it could so obviously have been staged in so many different ways.

they said earlier on in the show that no eletronic gadgest were allowed to be taken into the casino (as they can be used to predict roughly where the ball will land), but then he, and a friend both take small hidden cameras in there. At the start, you saw him live, sat in the back of a van, and it looked suspiciously like the van that the punter ended up in later when he was watching the two hidden cameras.

Which must be of great relevance, to someone, somewhere, I can only assume.

...if you press it, they will come.
