Doubling For London
When British made shows are set in London, but filmed elsewhere.

This can be due to cost, or lack of the right sort of architecture (much of the Victorian architecture in the East End was destroyed in the Second World War or subsequent slum clearance).

Despite what the name would suggest to those with a certain accent, the city used is usually (but not always) somewhere in the UK - productions rarely, if ever, actually use Dublin for London.

Compare California Doubling.
