I really enjoyed the series, well made but I very much doubt there were ever such a mob called the peaky blinders.
They're quite a well known urban legend here in the Midlands. My grandad had talked of them as had my girlfriends elder family members.

They were definitely a real gang, but as far as I can tell the story is very loosely based on true events if any at all. It could just be a complete fabrication based on the gang.

The papers here in the Midlands did quite a lot on the subject at the time of the programs airing.

I happen to find the twist of the final season (last scene with Adrian Brody) pretty poor... The screenwriters have made something too big, so they ruin the plot in 5 minutes in the last episode of season 5.
