I'm guessing this probably has nothing to do with the ongoing excavation there as part of the Crossrail transport project, which has meant buses in the vicinity being subjected to some diversions.
Finally, Conan urges the public to expose such people using the show's address which, together with the heading "Shameless Adulterous Weasel" or the like, is superimposed over Max.The sketch is typically performed with Richter participating, but after Richter left Late Night, the celebrity guest would participate (when Richter was scheduled as a guest, he would again take part).Emma was especially disgusted that chef appeared to believe refugees could be spies.For a nasty moment she was on the verge of going all ‘Lily Allen in the Jungle’ and apologising in floods of tears for how horrible the British were." During an "In the Year 2000" sketch, O'Brien, Andy/Guest, as well as band member Richie "La Bamba" Rosenberg, each wears a black robe, futuristic-looking collar and hold a lit flashlight to their face.

Director Stephen Woolfenden appears unable to manage his actors if they are moving.
It’s as if Downton Abbey had opened with Lord Grantham clutching at a newspaper, crying: ‘My God! Some scenes could have been filmed for TV 60 years ago — such as the fight between twin toffs Freddie and Toby (Jamie Blackley and Edward Bluemel). You half expected to hear a voice off-stage shout: ‘And... ’The Halcyon also suffers from a flaw that affects so many period dramas: the characters act as though they have been teleported from the 21st century, and are horrified at the cultural attitudes of the Olden Days.
I want a large slice of ham, with a slab of cheese on the side, a good helping of reheated stodge in the middle, and no sauce, served with a bottle of bubbly that leaves a lingering soapy aftertaste.
