ricky and steve on production
Did you stick religiously to the scripts or was most of it improvisation and if so, how hard was it to perform?
asked John Arnold of Farnborough
Ricky and Steve: It was 95% scripted, with some improvisation here and there.
The second series of The Office on DVD set a record as the fastest selling TV show. It shifted 143,000 copies during the first week on sale.
How much interest did you take in getting the set and location right?
asked Lil Smalls of Scotland
Ricky and Steve: We take a hundred per cent interest in every aspect of the show. It's a labour of love.
Is the set an actual working office or just a set created in a studio?
asked Dave of Aiketgate
Ricky and Steve: It's a real office that happens to be part of Teddington Film Studios. For a while it was the production offices of 'Today With Des and Mel'.
Can you please tell me the Artist and title of the opening song?
asked Ken of Melbourne, Australia
Ricky and Steve: It's called 'Handbags and Gladrags'. It was made famous by Rod Stewart, written by Mike D'Abo and recently covered by The Stereophonics. Our version is sung by a guy called Fin.
I'd just like to know how hard it was to capture the whole thing in a documentary style?
asked Stuart Griffiths of Cardiff
Ricky and Steve: It's harder than you may think because people are so familiar with the documentary style and so you have to work extra hard to make it seem convincing. It's a fun challenge for the actors though and allows them a lot of freedom.
