Slippery When Wet

One wonders whether is this story was about a railway line you wouldn't find it buried in the regional press. Locking Stumps is not too far away from Irlam and Cadishead, a vacuous housing estate which forms part of Eileen Bilton's Warrington New Town. Such places seem to represent the future in the 1980s, but already the area is showing signs of decay, with many houses requiring improvement. Although the area does boast a lot of nice roundabouts.

I also like the intertextuality of the headline with reference to buffonned poodle rockers Bon Jovi's hit LP. I enjoyed Life on Mars, but was somewhat dismayed to hear the follow up series Ashes to Ashes, which relocates the action to the 1980s should really be made in Locking Stumps and not London, a place when time has stood still since 1984.
