Burn handles the voices of all characters himself, and affects accents for those coming from places outside of the city. Earlier in Welsh's career, there were adaptations with multiple cast members instead.

Like Alasdair Gray before him, Welsh also experiments with typography. In the book Filth, the tapeworm's internal monologue is imposed over the top of the protagonist's own internal monologue (the worm's host), visibly depicting the tapeworm's voracious appetite, much like the "Climax of Voices" in Gray's novel 1982, Janine.
