Director John Giles and production designer Don Homfray both felt this episode should look noticeably different from the two Henry IV plays. Whilst they had been focused on rooms and domestic interiors, Henry V was focused on large open spaces. As such, because they could not shoot on location, and because creating realistic reproductions of such spaces in a studio was impossible, they decided to take a more stylized approach to production design than had hitherto been seen in the series. Ironically however, the finished product ended up looking more realistic that either of them had anticipated, or desired.
