The real No. 10 Downing Street was decorated by Steve Hunt, his first job after leaving school. The entrance hall behind the famous No. 10 front door is blue in the film, but was really painted red, which Margaret Thatcher did not like, since it is the traditional colour for the opposition Labour Party. The main staircase was painted in a stippled yellow glaze, not beige-pink like in the film.
