Large chunks of the new Marks and Spencer’s Christmas ad, which debuted on TV last night, were filmed in Middle Temple…

The ad sees a young woman, who we can only assume is a barrister, journey from the heart of legal London to a magical kingdom after she falls down a manhole on Middle Temple lane while chasing her dog.

After a series of adventures, the woman re-emerges on Crown Office Row, where she is greeted by Helena Bonham Carter and the troublesome canine.

With dog and owner re-united, the camera pans towards the barristers’ chambers beyond to reveal a festive September scene.

Yes, September. Here’s a tweet by 1 Crown Office Row barrister Adam Wagner from when the ad was being filmed.
