Trivia:

»

For Day One, the scene of the meteor streaking across the sky is witnessed by Gwen and Rhys, only in reality they are facing south on St. Mary's Street watching it whereas it is heading north over the Friary here!

»

As a minor continuity point, Principality is a Welsh Building Society, and so it's appearance in "London" for Smith and Jones seems unlikely in reality!
