Hell is a location in religious belief where those who arrive are forced to spend their afterlife in suffering for eternity, instead of paradise in heaven. In Gene Hunt's World, hell is an existing location, which can accessed by an omnipresent elevator, similar to the supernatural Railway Arms pub. In 1983, Jim Keats arrived at Fenchurch East from hell in an attempt to bring down "Gene Hunt's kingdom" and tempt his colleagues to transfer to his "department". At this point in time, the elevator to hell was located in a London police station that was part of the Metropolitan Police Service (A2A Series 3: Episode 8). Interestingly, all of the elevators are marked as "Lift Out of Service," and Keats nonchalantly tosses aside one of the barriers to call one of the elevators.
