The Crocodile Club was a redecorated and propped bar in Edinburgh.

Council flat interiors were shot on two full composites, left and right handed variations. The sets were built in Glasgow studios and were revamped into four different interiors.

The Police Station interiors were a disused public baths in Glasgow.

The composite interior set was radically rebuilt with a dividing wall requiring to be demolished in shot.

We had two hoardings built - the most contentious being erected on the Craigmillar Estate the day prior to shooting.

The hoarding was petrol bombed during the night so hasty repairs had to take place before filming could begin.
