All the different filming locations and how they were all joined together to make the stories fit. With that goes for Series 2, how things had to change with Gary's death and the character of Vera having to be written out at short notice. Only after learning that did some of the puzzle pieces fit.

In the series Vera moved to the coast, but from sounds of original scripts if Caroline Hutchison had not had been ill then we would have seen Dennis and her in a few scenes..

One thing i never realised about it was exactly how much each place/city was used for series 1 and 2... Always thought that Dusseldorf was used until i started getting into locations and where they all actually were..

I've learnt that most of the scenes or shots in Tyneside - are not in Tyneside.

I always assumed Oz's flat in S1 was filmed in Newcastle. It was only thanks to this site that I realised it was 20mins down the road from where I live now! Always think of Oz & the Mackens in the taxi when I pass it now; it brightens even the dullest of days :)

Who'd have thought the cigarette factory featured in Series 2 would now be a protected listed building!
