Well for real (happened to me on a BA 747 earlier this year into LHR), there is an emergency blowdown system. We knew something was wrong as the noise increases dramatically (as though the spoilers were deployed, but I could see that they weren't). We landed, uneventfully, on a runway on our own lined by fire trucks and ambulances and cleared the runway and shut down. I wish I could remember the typical British understated report from the pilot!
