JACK Bauer will mostly be trying to get a bus during next month’s episodes of 24.
The story takes place during a tube strike, with the fugitive agent having to travel from Hammersmith to Finsbury Park on public transport.
Producer Tom Booker said: “Jack’s stress levels are off the chart as he queues for hours to get to the site of a planned assassination.
“Even when he’s on the bus, there’s nowhere to sit down and some kids with a bull mastiff are giving him evils.”
After an exhausting journey to successfully save a politician from a sniper’s bullet, Bauer then has to get the night bus home.
Booker said: “By that time it’s getting late and Jack can’t work out from the confusing map at the bus stop whether he needs an N10 or an N30.
“Of all the threats he has faced over the years, none has rivalled him riding the top deck of a night bus wearing an expensive-looking watch.”
