* ActorInspiredElement: The addition of [[spoiler: Billy's abusive father and his mother leaving him]] was Dacre's request, in an attempt to humanise him and add depth to him. Dacre has been very open about being bullied when he was at school for being FormerlyFat, but has stated that as he got older, he realised those who bullied him probably didn't have good, stable home lives, causing them to lash out against others. This inspired him to add this to Billy's background.
