In popular culture[edit]

In the last episode of BBC's 'Knowing Me Knowing You' radio series, Alan Partridge's last guest dies on air. Alan decides to observe a minute's silence, but realises - as it is radio - that a minute of 'dead air' is impossible. He therefore intersperses the silence with an occasional utterance. Thus he suggests to listeners on the road to pull off and join in the minute's silence. He even goes as far as naming a few service stations where they can park their cars. One of them is Toddington.
