How it was done Re-recording mixer Rob Hughes’ aim was to create a detailed and involving environment that supports and reflects the subtleties of the performances. Hughes said the need for authenticity was paramount in order to envelope the viewer in the historical period. Key sequences realised by Lip Sync’s VFX team, led by VFX supervisor George Zwier, included the world of Tudor London around Cromwell’s home, Austin Friars, and the Thames around London Bridge. Lip Sync also created the title sequence, which has been used as the basis for cover artwork on the new editions of the books to accompany the series.
