      • The second series was criticized for resembling a soap opera and for overdoing the drama up to a farce. Jimmy McGovern was less involved in this series and latter admitted that it could have been a mistake to continue the show.
        John Simm stated that he was unhappy that Jimmy McGovern wasn't as involved in the second series as he was in the first. According to him, there were good aspects to the second series but he would have been fine with the show ending after the first series.

      • For the second series, the characters John and Simone Parr were renamed into John and Simone Fisher. This was done to avoid name similarities with an actual murderer in the Lake District. The crime occurred in between the two series and apparently a headmaster killed his wife who had an affair and threw her body in the lake.

      • When the second series aired, there were 154 complains made to the Broadcasting Standards Commission (Queer as Folk (UK) got 138 complaints). The commission reacted stating: "The amount of sexual conflict, nudity, and strong language had been no more than necessary to the Drama's depiction of a nightmarish world dominated by lust, self-interest, and vengeance. Such a portrayal of a deeply fallen humanity had not been inappropriate for transmission on a Sunday."
