Trivia

Although set in 1920s Birmingham, the show is mostly filmed around Liverpool and Merseyside and in London. Wherever possible and appropriate, scenes are shot in Birmingham and the West Midlands (such as The Black Country Museum in Dudley) however there are very few areas of Birmingham left that still resemble the period environment required.

HBO production quality levels
11 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I for one am a huge fan of this compelling series. A wonderful dark industrial landscape, great soundtrack, rich characters that have real depth played by quality actors, all to the tune of a great script and an interesting time line. You an clearly see the similarities with the high quality US series and they have gone for this market and there is clearly lots here that could make it a fantastic long running series.

Sadly, I am concerned that the BBC won't be able to retain the quality levels and we won't see it evolve in the way that the sopranos (yes I compare this show to the sopranos and boardwalk empire) evolved. Please push this internationally, let's keep it on our screens and see it develop. This period in UK history is rich with trauma, upheaval and change, the backdrop of industrial Birmingham is new and trumps the well trodden New York, Chicago, and London gangster scenes. For writers and producers this represents very fertile ground and allows innovative story lines to emerge.

Keep peaky blinders on our screens..... The campaign starts here!
