Number of Seasons / Episodes

- Steve Pemberton stated in an interview (Mail February 25, 2017) that the only link between the stories is a small statue of a hare that he and Shearsmith place in each set.
- The title refers to the movie Gaslight (1944) starring Ingrid Bergman, where the murder and manipulation takes place at Number 9 Thornton Square.
- As well as all of the episodes having a “bottle episode” aesthetic, several episodes also take place in “real-time” (the story takes place entirely within the thirty minute run time).
