It’s a compelling story, and one that’s brought to vivid reality by an exceptional cast and some brilliant writing. William Hurt is masterful as the determined Feynman, a moral and extremely gifted scientist who’s ravaged by cancer and has a slight hint of The Dude from ‘The Big Lebowski’ about him. Like all dramatisations, it’s likely ‘The Challenger’ takes a few liberties with the truth, but this is nevertheless a gripping and revealing account of the Challenger disaster aftermath.
Searcys St Pancras Grand Restaurant & Bar
This Searcys restaurant and bar on the upper concourse at St Pancras Station certainly boasts some pretty views. Look outside and you're treated to the impressive glass and steel lattice roof of the station; inside and it's a lovely art-deco room designed by Martin Brudnizki. You can see the Eurostar parking up and pulling away, too. Fittingly, there's something of the entente cordiale to the food menu here. Dishes range from potted shrimp, London cure smoked salmon and fish and chips with tartare sauce to steak frites, lobster tail thermidor and rognons d'agneau à la dijonnaise - lambs' kidneys with a dijon mustard sauce. Keep an eye out for weekly specials, too. Drinks are also a focus, with the champagne selection able to take advantage of Searcys Champagne Bar directly opposite, and a nicely categorised wine list led by the old world but with a fair few new world options too. Classic cocktails, a very good whisky selection and beers and ciders both on draught and by the bottle complete the list.
