The mysterious door to nowhere

Recommended Posts

Chatted to a guy recently who had just bought a one bed flat. It was a recent conversion of a large property to multiple units. He couldn't work out the difference in floor plan between upper and lower floors of his place  and decided to investigate and found one of the stud walls concealed a whole enclosed room with no entrances so he just knocked through and now has a two bedder, lucky bugger.

Lucky him :)

I don't think there's another room behind it.

The photo above looks tampered with but it isn't. There does appear to be a free-standing door in the middle of the room.

That is bizarre. Didn't anyone notice.

I suspect it has been put there for some technical reason - dampen sound reverb possiblity or to block some sound that the mics were picking up.

Or something was reflecting that they could not move.

It is just a door stood behind the sofa isn't it?

I can't see any hinges or a door post; it does look like it's just been positioned there.  Maybe hiding something off-putting behind it like maintenance works or the crew's dirty tea mugs.

99% of viewers wouldn't pick up on it; I wouldn't have.

It's Danny Dire, he just looks wooden.

I reckon you might be on to something there.

Suppose the kitchen is L-shaped and open-plan and fluorescent overhead lighting follows that shape.

We'd recorded it and we both spotted it - it's quite a long scene - and wound it back to check again. Really bizarre.

There could have been an offensive picture or symbol in the studio. So they put a door there to hide it post production.

Is there a clip on youtube?

After a brief bit of digging around: the episode is on YouTube, but you have to pay to watch it. I don't think there's any easy way to get the episode off the PVR recorder box onto this computer.

I think it's S1 E2.

Being a bit of a devil and genuinely having nothing better to do today I've tracked down the company that made the series and have sent them an email asking them to help us solve the mystery.

Probably sealed off as it was full of asbestos of something...That or some ghostly entity.

Hiding a studio support would be my guess.

Were they having an extension built in this episode?

The door is a metaphor.

If they didn't use a studio, and used someones actual kitchen, there could have been a family photo with children in it, or a hanging flat panel TV with a TV show on it (copyright claim) and the director had to put something there to hide it. This is probably the logical explanation.

The lighting looks off - it looks like it was superimposed. If this was a one camera angle sequence, then this is easy to do.

We were watching an old episode of Scott and Bailey last night and became intrigued by a separate mystery within the crime drama.

Where the hell does this door lead?

To me it looks like there's a room inset behind the blonde and the stud wall partitioning it is covered by a floor to ceiling mirror. The door into that room has been left open.
