  • Filming locations

    Filmed in south east Essex, with locations in Southend-on-Sea, Westcliff, Leigh-on-Sea and Canvey Island, the opening five minutes are of the bridge down to Leigh-on-Sea’s cockle sheds, with a lorry hanging over.

    Furtherwick Park, Canvey, was used for the school scenes, and Southend United's ground, Roots Hall, was used for the stabbing scenes.

    Disco scenes in Southend are notable for an early television appearance of Mel Smith playing the manager. Victoria Circus, Southend sea front and hospital are all used as locations, culminating in the final scene outside the Casino, Canvey Island, on a London double decker.
