Clare Hudson, the head of productions at BBC Wales, spoke to the Welsh National Assembly and said that this smoking ban could be costly for the economy, saying that it could affect economic growth. Without this new burden, she said, the production crew would be more successful.

There are of course alternatives. For one episode, the crew actually had to go outside of Wales to shoot some of the scenes, making it seem like they were still on location. There are also computer animations that can replicate a cigarette. However, Clare said that real smoking was more authentic, and looked more real.
