The drama is written by BAFTA nominated writer and actor Mick Ford and stars Sophie Rundle (from Gentleman Jack, Peaky Blinders), Nicholas Gleaves (The Crown, TheRising, Bodyguard), Phillip Glenister (from Belgravia, Life on Mars) and Jonas Armstrong (The Bay, Floodlights).

However, production created a purpose-built set near the Trafford Centre. They then built  20 stone terrace houses that were made out of plasterboard to emulate those in Glossop. These were then filled with a rubber lining which were filled with water to create the flood effect.
