Black Mirror: Bandersnatch filmed in Croydon

Filmed mostly in Croydon, the most captivating feature film of the end of the year reveals some of the locations where Stefan’s life choices were made. Whatever decisions are made, two fanspots stand out.

No 1 Croydon

Frosties or Sugar Puffs, Thompson twins or Now That’s What I Call Music, Vol. 2, Stefan finds himself in front of Tower No. 1 Croydon, home of Tuckersoft’s headquarters. This video game company, whose fictional website can be viewed here, is at the heart of the plot, and decisive in the hero’s life. This one is installed in this famous tower, also called 50p building. The people of Croydon consider the building to resemble a pile of 50 pence coins, a somewhat erroneous comparison when one realizes that the building is octagonal and that these coins are heptagonistic. If this building looks familiar, you probably saw it in the credits of the Terry and June sitcom in the 1980s.

St George’s Walk

A crucial choice takes place in one of the shops on St George’s Walk, a walk redecorated in 1980s style for the occasion. The Bermuda Triangle or Phaedra, Stefan’s future is decisive in his vinyl purchase.

This shopping alley almost didn’t appear in the feature film produced by Netflix. A project dating back to 2006 planned to destroy the commercial square in 2011 in order to build the Park Place shopping centre. In May 2009, the municipality terminated the project following the expiry of the authorizations and its financing difficulties.

If you wish to extend the experience, be aware that one of the alternative endings shows Stefan with a tape of his finished game. When he listens to it through his player, the tape plays very anxiety-provoking sounds. This sequence is far from insignificant. Some viewers extracted the audio from it, passed it through an emulator and discovered a QR Code. It allows you to go to Tuckersoft’s website, including Nohzdyve’s page, download it and, thanks to an EX Spectrum emulator, play it.
