Shooting on location had several benefits; the camera could be set up in such a way as to show ceilings, something which cannot be done when shooting in a TV studio, as rooms are ceilingless to facilitate lighting. Also, the episode was shot in winter, and on several occasions, characters' breath can be seen, something which was also impossible to achieve in the studio. However, because of the cost, logistics and planning required for shooting on location, Cedric Messina
decided that all subsequent productions would be done in-studio, a decision which did not go down well with several of the directors lined up for work on the second season. See more
