* Mention must be made to late cinematographer Adrian Biddle. This was the last film he completed before suffering a fatal heart attack, and it was his magnum opus: he manged to capture the shadowy, silhouetted environment of London and its characters, and was able to enable V possessed an atmosphere of anonymity and mystery.

-->'''V:''' I suppose you're wondering why I called you here this evening. Well, you see, I'm not entirely satisfied with your performance lately... I'm afraid your work's been slipping, and... And I'm afraid we've been thinking about letting you ''go''. Oh, I know, I know. You've been with the company a long time now. Almost... let me see. Almost ten thousand years! my word, doesn't time fly? It seems like only yesterday... I remember the day you commenced your employment, swinging down from the trees, fresh-faced and nervous, a bone clasped in your bristling fist... "Where do I start, sir?" You asked, plaintively. I recall my exact words: "There's a pile of dinosaur eggs over there, youngster." I said, smiling paternally the while. "Get sucking." Well, we've certainly come a long way since ''then'', haven't we? And yes, yes, you're right, in all that time you haven't missed a day. Well done, thou good and faithful servant. Also, please don't think I've forgotten about your outstanding service record, or about all the invaluable contributions you've made to the company... Fire, the wheel, agriculture... It's an impressive list, old timer. A ''jolly'' impressive list. Don't get me wrong. But... Well, to be frank, we've had our problems, too. There's no getting away from it. Do you know what I think a lot of it stems from? I'll tell you... It's your basic unwillingness to ''get on'' with the company. You don't seem to want to face up to any ''real'' responsibility, or to be your own boss. Lord knows, you've been given plenty of opportunities... [[RefusedTheCall We've offered you promotion time and time again, and each time you've turned us down.]] "I couldn't handle the work, guv'nor," you wheedled. "I know my place." To be frank, you're not ''trying'', are you? You see, you've been standing still for far too long, and it's starting to show in your work... And I might add, in your general standard of behaviour. The constant bickering on the factory floor has not escaped my attention... Nor the recent bouts of rowdiness in the staff canteen. Then of course there's... Hmm. Well, I really didn't want to have to bring this up, but... Well, you see, I've been hearing some disturbing rumours about your personal life. No, never you mind who told me. No names, no pack drills... I understand that you are unable to get on with your spouse. I hear that you argue. I am told that you shout. Violence has been mentioned. I am reliably informed that you always hurt the one you love... [[TranquilFury The one you shouldn't hurt at all.]] And what about the children? It's always the children who suffer, as you're well aware. Poor little mites, what are they to make of it? What are they to make of [[TheBully your bullying]], [[StrawNihilist your despair]], [[DirtyCoward your cowardice]] [[HumansAreBastards and all your fondly nurtured bigotries?]] Really, it's not good enough, is it? And it's no good blaming the drop in work standards upon bad management, either... Though, to be sure, the management is ''[[PeoplesRepublicofTyranny very]]'' bad. In fact, let us not mince words... The management is ''[[DayOfTheJackboot terrible]]''! We've had a string of embezzlers, frauds, liars and lunatics making a string of catastrophic decisions. This is plain fact. But who ''elected'' them? it was ''you''! ''You'' who appointed these people! ''You'' who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I'll admit that anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have ''encouraged'' these malicious incompetents, who have made your working life a shambles. You have accepted without question their senseless orders. You have allowed them to fill your workspace with [[ANuclearError dangerous and unproven machines.]] You could have ''stopped'' them. All you had to say was ''' ''[[SuddenlyShouting NO!]]'' ''' You have no spine. You have no pride. You are no longer an asset to the company. I will, however, be generous. You will be granted two years to show me some improvement in your work. If at the end of that time you are still unwilling to make a go of it... [[BaitAndSwitch You're fired.]] That will be all. [[MagnificentBastard You may return to your labours.]]

* In one of the bonus comics, it focuses on a nameless doorman working at a hotel. The only job he has is to open the door for anyone going in or coming out, and salute them. He's next to invisible to everyone. One night he looks into the hotel to see V running for the door with pursuers hot on his tail. If the doorman barricades the door for even a second, V's as good as caught. Instead, the doorman does his job. He opens the door for a man coming out and salute's the passer-by. V even takes the moment to look at his saviour as he passes.
