The Office Scenes



Here's a couple of pictures showing the Admin Offices before and after.

Before was an empty dis-used office, and after, it became home to Joanna Clore (Pippa Haywood), Harriet (Olivia Coleman), Rachel (Katie Lyons), Kim (Sally Bretton) and Karen (Lucinda Raikes)

We filmed here in December of 2003, and it was pretty cold!

Jonathan, I'm sure you'll get a lot of very grateful GW fans visiting any day now. In fact, prepare yourself for the hordes.

But I've been wondering whether, for Series 2, you have decided to recreate in a studio any real life locations from Series 1 that proved just too tricky to film in.

We've extended the set by about 50% for Series 2.
Staham's office remains the same, but we've extended his corridor, Sue White's office remains the same, the General Medical Reception is about twice the size now, plus we made another new corridor with windows to the outside world, so that it looks even more real.
There's also another new set, but I can't tell you what it is, because it'll spoil the plot for Episode 1 !
