    Circle line is the worst line!
    Gah, I know! Annoyingly, the places I need to get to are mostly served by the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines. As a result, it takes ages to get anywhere.

    If I had a choice, I'd definitely take the Victoria or Piccadilly lines instead...

    The record is 16 hours the last time I checked.

    The Jubilee every time. It's much faster than the others. Commuting along the Jube is very heaven.

    Well if you can use Hammersmith, Notting Hill Gate and KGX you can minimise the time wasted on those lines!

    Central line (although I hate the interchange between the DLR and Central line at Bank); or the Jubilee Line. Oh, and although it isn't technically an underground line, the DLR. It's so slow but it's so pleasant to be above ground, especially going through the Canary Wharf on a nice day.

    I have Hammersmith & City and District lines pretty close too but I choose not to use them because they're crap.

    The District line runs a decent service!

    You can change at sub-street Bank if you go past the barriers and walk around the subway tunnel

    There was a similar series shown on Sky at some point a few years ago that was actually (I thought) better, it delved into the lives of different people like drivers and engineers, controllers, ticket barrier staff, etc. It was very funny and also alarming at times, when it showed what they are up against. Congestion and overcrowding can really be insane at times and it gets quite dangerous to be down there when its really bad.

    I wish my tube line was the legendary Brill Tramway.

    It was part of the Metropolitan Railway and became part of the London Underground when that was created in 1933. It closed in 1935.

    The district line is generally slow/always got maintenance on though. Bank just takes forever to walk through, which ever way you go, I find.

    What do you mean?

    It's slow west of Earl's Court or East of Tower Hill
    The District Line is the only line I take basically so I'm used to it lol. I mostly take the bus to places so I try not to take the tube anyway.
