      • Producer Hilary Beven Jones and actor John Simm visited the head offices of two British newspapers in prepation for the series. They noticed that unlike similar offices in films in which you hear phones continuously ringing, they are quiet and you only hear the occasional pager.

        Film extras were used to play most of the journalists at The Herald. They were each asked to think up a history for their character and what their job might be within the office.
