    Since you are in London, there is a very good lab called Metro. They are close to Barbican tube station. You can get an e6 film processed there within 2 hours. They also sell films. Also worth mentioning is a lab called Bayeux which is off Oxford Street. Both Labs have a web site. I process my films at both labs although I think that Metro are a bit better.

    I'd wait a bit longer and see if the pictures turn up before you get too disheartened....Royal Mail delivery speeds can be very erratic at times, and, unless it were tracked "signed for mail", I'd treat the remark that there were no items from the company's postcode will a little scepticism.

    I use Peak Imaging for most E6 and Photo Express in Hull when I need next-day C41, some I process myself Used to use Transpacolor in Leicester for many years, but stopped a few months ago when I had two spoiled E6 films which showed all the symptoms of exhausted first developer (maybe lack of turnover volume?). Heard good reports of Metro too.
