Mahoney and Leeves quickly bonded over their shared English heritage; Mahoney was originally from Manchester where Leeves's character is from.
The character of Niles was not part of the original concept for the show. Frasier had told his bar friends on Cheers that he was an only child.
She recommended him should they ever want Frasier to have a brother. The creators were "blown away" both by his resemblance to Grammer and by his acting ability.
Once he was given a script, he was initially concerned that his character was essentially a duplicate of Frasier, thinking that it would not work.
The only main role that required an audition was Roz Doyle,  who was named in memory of a producer of Wings.
Women of all ethnicities were considered. The creators quickly hired Gilpin, their second choice.
The original focus of the series was intended to be the relationship between Frasier and Martin, and it was the focus of most of the first-season episodes.
Once the show began airing, Niles became a breakout character , and more focus was added to the brothers' relationship, and other plots centering on Niles, starting in the second season.
They originally intended that she would appear after several episodes, but were so enjoying writing excuses for her absence that eventually they decided she would remain unseen, and after the increasingly eccentric characteristics ascribed to her, no real actress could portray her.
Frasier's apartment was designed to be ultra-modern in an eclectic style as Frasier himself points out in the pilot.
One of the show's signature elements that it became well known for was the apartment's design which included elements such as a slightly split-level design, doors with triangular wooden inlay features, numerous pieces of well-known high-end furniture such as a replica of Coco Chanel 's sofa, and both Eames and Wassily Chairs and a notable view from the terrace which was frequently complimented by visitors.
The set also included the kitchen through an open archway. A small section of the building corridor and elevator doors was built, as was a powder room near the front entrance.
Two corridors off the living area ostensibly led to the apartment's three bedrooms. Sets for each of these rooms were built as separate sets on an as-needed basis.
No building or apartment in Seattle really has the view from Frasier's residence. It was created so the Space Needle , the most iconic landmark of Seattle, would appear more prominently.
According to the season-one DVD bonus features, the photograph used on the set was taken from atop a cliff, possibly the ledge at Kerry Park , a frequent photography location.
Despite this, Frasier has been said to have contributed to the emergence of an upscale urban lifestyle in s Seattle, with buyers seeking properties in locations resembling that depicted in the show, in search of "that cosmopolitan feel of Frasier".
The studio itself consists of two rooms: the broadcast booth and the control room. A section of the corridor outside of the booth was also built visible through the windows at the back of the studio and could be shot from the side to view the corridor itself.
The set was designed based on ABC's then-brand-new radio studios in Los Angeles which the production designer visited. Technical elements such as the microphones were regularly updated to conform with the latest technology.
Although the studio set lacked a "front" wall the fourth wall , one was built for occasional use in episodes with certain moments shot from behind the broadcast desk, rather than in front of it as usual.
The producers wanted to have a gathering place outside of home and work where the characters could meet. After a trip to Seattle, and seeing the many burgeoning coffee shops, the production designer suggested to producers that they use a coffee shop.
Unlike many of the relatively modern coffee shop designs prevalent in Seattle, the production designer opted for a more warm and inviting style which would appear more established and traditional.
Stools were specifically omitted to avoid any similarity to the bar on Cheers. Several Los Angeles coffee shops were used for reference.
A bookcase was added on the back wall, suggesting patrons could grab a book and read while they enjoyed their coffee. The show used three versions of the interior set depending on how much space other sets for each episode required.
If space for the full set was not available, a smaller version that omitted the tables closest to the audience could be used.
If space for that set was lacking, a small back section of the back of the cafe at the top of the steps could be set up under the audience bleachers.
A set was also used on occasion for the exterior patio. The cast had an unusual amount of freedom to suggest changes to the script.
Grammer used an acting method he called "requisite disrespect" and did not rehearse with the others, instead learning and rehearsing his lines once just before filming each scene in front of a live studio audience.
Although effective, the system often caused panic among guest stars. In , Grammer's recurrent alcoholism led to a car accident.
The cast and crew performed an intervention that persuaded him to enter the Betty Ford Clinic , delaying production for a month.
Only one episode, " The th Show ", was filmed in Seattle. The KACL callers' lines were read by anonymous voice-over actors during filming in front of a live audience, and during postproduction , the lines were replaced by celebrities, who actually phoned in their parts without having to come into the studio.
The end credits of season finales show greyscale headshots of celebrities who had "called in" that season.
Some "callers" also guest-starred, such as Parsons and Linney, who played Frasier's final love interest in the last season.
The show's theme song, "Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs", is sung by Grammer and is played over the closing credits of each episode.
Composer Bruce Miller, who had also composed for Wings , was asked to avoid explicitly mentioning any subjects related to the show such as radio or psychiatry.
After Miller finished the music, lyricist Darryl Phinnesse suggested the title as they were things that were, like Frasier Crane's patients, "mixed up".
The lyrics indirectly refer to Crane's radio show; "I hear the blues a-callin", for example, refers to troubled listeners who call the show.
Other than season finales, a short, silent scene, often revisiting a small subplot aside from the central story of the episode, appears with the credits and song, which the actors performed without written dialogue based on the scriptwriter's suggestion.
The title card at the start of each episode shows a white line being drawn in the shape of the Seattle skyline on a black background above the show's title.
In most episodes, once the skyline and title appear, the skyline is augmented in some way, such as windows lighting up or a helicopter lifting off.
The color of the title text changed for each season respectively: blue, red, green, purple, gold, orange, yellow, light green, light orange, silver, and metallic gold.
Over the title card, one of about 25 brief musical cues evoking the closing theme is played. Talks of a revival began in , but were initially denied by Grammer, though they resurfaced in mid- to late , with Grammer confirming they were looking into it.
In February and March , he said in several interviews that a reboot was likely. Grammer has said the revival will be a "third act" for the Frasier Crane character and is likely to be in a new setting other than Seattle.
He has also indicated a new series will pay tribute to John Mahoney. With the exception of Rebecca Howe Kirstie Alley , all the surviving main regular cast members of Cheers made appearances on Frasier.
Lilith Sternin Bebe Neuwirth was the only one to become a recurring character, appearing in a total of twelve episodes.
In the ninth-season episode of Frasier , "Cheerful Goodbyes" in , Frasier returns to Boston to give a speech and Niles, Daphne, and Martin come along to see the city.
Frasier runs into Cliff Clavin played by John Ratzenberger at the airport and learns that Cliff is retiring and moving to Florida.
In the 11th-season episode of Frasier , "Caught in the Act", Frasier's married ex-wife, children's entertainer Nanny G, comes to town and invites him backstage for a rendezvous.
Some cast members of Frasier had appeared previously in minor roles on Cheers. In it, Grammer and Mahoney exchanged a few lines.
Peri Gilpin appeared in a Cheers episode titled "Woody Gets an Election"  playing a reporter who interviews Woody when he runs for office.
The set of Frasier was built over the set of Cheers on the same stage after it had finished filming.
Critics and commentators broadly held Frasier in high regard. Darowski and Kate Darowski praise the overall message of the series, which across eleven seasons sees several lonely, broken individuals develop warm, caring relationships.
While individual episodes vary in quality, the series as a whole carries with it a definitive theme and evolution from pilot to finale.
In spite of the criticisms of the later seasons, these critics were unanimous in praising at least the early seasons, with varied commentary on the series' demise ranging from believing, like Bianco, that the show had run its course to those like Dana Stevens, who bemoaned the end of Frasier as the "end of situation comedy for adults".
