This is the first TV series in the Wolf Films/Universal "Law & Order" franchise not to have theme music composed by Mike Post or opening narration by Steven Zirnkilton (there are other foreign adaptations of L&O, but these are produced by licensees, not Wolf/Universal).

The opening credits follow the general format set by the US Law & Order (1990) series: the word "Law" is followed by credits for the primary police detective characters, then the word "Order" is followed by the credits for the prosecutors, and finally, a group shot of the main characters together.

Originally each season was going to be shown as 13 complete episodes but this was later changed to blocks of 7 and 6 episodes per series to spread out over the year because the production was finding it difficult filming on the streets of London. However to make up for the low number of episodes North American countries like USA and Canada air the series in the original block of 13 episodes.

The scene cards at the start of the trial sequences say "Crown v. xyz". In England prosecutions are in the name of the Queen and are annotated "R v XYZ"

Narrator: In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime, and the Crown Prosecutors who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.
