Although during the episode it is assumed that the allotments are in London. The allotments used for filming were Natal Road Allotments which are in a suburb of Brighton in East Sussex. Filmed throughout November 1992 with the episode broadcast on Christmas day 1992.

It was an ideal location, due to its remote location but also the fact that there are a number of tower blocks around the site, so the location could be used to represent it being in South London.
