Question: How did they do the deserted London scenes? I mean, it is practically impossible to do, right? Are they real shots of London, or is it a set or was it done somehow different?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: According to the making of documentary, they cleared relatively small portions of London early in the morning (with the help of the Police of course) and filmed the shots using a digital camera, which is incredibly easy and fast to set up, meaning they could go in and do a take in a remarkably short time. So it is the real London (as well as the motorway scenes), but only small portions at a time are deserted.
