Did You Know?


David Bowie was a huge fan of Peaky Blinders. Bowie loved the show so much that he sent the production team a picture of himself wearing a razor blade-peaked flat cap. According to the Telegraph, the singer's "people" also made it clear to creator Steven Knight that he would love to feature on the soundtrack. At the scene where we see Tommy Shelby recovering from the injuries he sustained at the end of the last episode, we can listen to "Lazarus" by David Bowie whose song scored Tommy's woozy morphine-fuelled recovery.

It is 1922. In the beginning of the episode we see the beaten up Tom Shelby lying in a HALO vest. This is a device to stabilize the neck, usually for fractures, and the first use of it was not described until 1959. A few scenes later he is sitting on the bedside without the HALO vest but with a fresh scalp wound. Although not specifically stated it would be reasonable to assume that the skull operation took place on the same day as the admission to hospital and that the HALO vest was applied directly thereafter. A HALO vest is usually worn from 6 weeks to three months and certainly never for just a few days. See more »

I love the series personally but
5 September 2018 | by gurneet-08160See all my reviews

Well actually its a very small butt considering the quality and story we are going through here. I personally love the series but this particular episode @ 38:00 mins a glitch in editing can be seen. It should be corrected.
