The Imitation Game opens the BFI London Film Festival tonight – marking its European premiere.

Having supported the filming in Chancery Lane for Camden Council, we are very much looking forward to seeing Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing – the tragic mathematics genius who broke the Nazi enigma code.

Fallen masonry, scattered timbers, sandbags and an air raid shelter all helped to dress Chancery Lane for the scene, set in 1942.

There’s more information from the British Film Institute here. And take a look here at the trailer.
