With a 22:30 quoted landing time, it's probably going to be abput 23:30 when 
Peter can get onto the Heathrow Express. That delivers him at Paddington at 
(optimistically) 23:45 (probably later) and that gives at most 22 minutes to 
get from Paddington to King's Cross. I would fully expect that to fail, via 
cab, via tube or via anything short of a stand-by helicopter ride.

I suspect that either an airport hotel (expensive), a hotel closer in towards 
London or someone offering a spare bed or couhc is a more realistic plan.
