Generally an airline is responsible for your connection between flights issued on a single ticket. Airports have a minimum connection time which limits how short a connection is allowed when ticketing. That time sometimes depends on factors like terminal changes but is in my opinion highly optimistic. When you buy from a third-party agent you are not always ...

When you buy a ticket from an airline they are on the hook for getting to your destination. So they will not sell tickets with impossible connections. Every airport has a minimum connection time, and for some airports that can indeed be as low as 30 minutes. In Europe competition between airlines is fierce. And for example when Lufthansa offers a ZRH-MUC-...

As a rule railway companies do not allow you to overshoot your station and return to it, although you often do not have to pay extra if you find out that your train did not stop where you expected it and you need to return to that station.

"Reasonable" in this context means that it makes sense to transit the UK on your given itinerary.
