The doors at the end of the train carriage open and shut - electrical jitters. We are all travelling backwards, facing towards them, and the lighting and style are classic cinematic design: recessed stud lamps in the ceiling, for whatever reason dimmer as they approach the oval-panelled glass. There's a flicker of tension as everyone of my generation and clade thinks of the original Alien film. Then, of course, we relax.

But not entirely.

@harkaway For reasons I could never fathom, our local shopping mall in Nagoya had a life-size alien in a cage standing opposite the lifts. Pics for proof: goo.gl/images/AxKRUR

Nothing worse than waiting for a lift with that behind you.
