If anyone was wondering where abouts it's located, it's on Sunset Avenue on the wall of Floyds Barbershop, just down the road from the offices of Google & Santa Monica beach, oh la la

Article on the Daily Mail website.

Peaky Blinders has started filming again (in Liverpool) for the fourth series and it may, just may, be on our screens in October.

Adrien Brody will be in the new series although they`re not saying what his character is yet. Tom Hardy will also return.

Found an article on the Daily Express website which I can`t post a link to.

It says that the fourth series will start with Tommy receiving a letter on Christmas Eve which says that the Peaky Blinders are in mortal danger, so he leaves his country home and heads back to Small Heath.

Again, if you read between the lines, there is a hint that the series will start in the UK in October.

Currently filming in Manchester`s Northern Quarter. I welcome them filming for another series but why couldn`t they find some streets in Birmingham or the Black Country that they could transform into 1920s Brummagem. The Mancs are getting to watch it being filmed live according to the Manchester Evening News.

Still, look forward to the next series.

Yeah mate, there were reports of gunshots too. Punters in Shudehill didn't know if it was Peaky Blinders being filmed or just another day in that part of town

I didn't notice this thread before. I haven't caught up fully on the show so won't scroll through in case of spoilers

But when I was in Cambodia last summer I was mentioning to an American fella that I was from Birmingham and he was like "Oooh like the Peaky Blinders?" Then from across the bar an English guy shouts "did someone say Peaky Blinders?!", runs over and shows us his forearm tattoo of Thomas Shelby. It's all quite surreal how international it is!

Erebus, do you know where the Englishman was from?

It is good to see the programme is a big success worldwide although that maybe influences Stephen Knight when he is writing each series because he wants the appeal to be as broad as possible.

I wouldn`t be surprised if Adrien Brody`s character in the next series will be an American because of the popularity the show has in the States.

I don't want to drop in too many spoilers and ruin it for Erebus. But in the last series they were definitely hinting at the fact that much of what follows could be set in the great US of A. Would make sense for profits as they seem to really like the show over there.

But no matter what direction it takes I hope Steven Knight keeps them coming back to Brum and doesn't lose all the heritage completely.

My guess is that Adrien Brody`s character will be Grace`s ex-husband. Only a guess. I haven`t got any inside info.


On another note, I`ve always quite fancied Sophie Rundle who plays Ada but there is a recent interview with her on the Daily Mail Online and she looks absolutely stunning. I know the photos will be airbrushed but I don`t care. She`s gorgeous.

She`s in a new series called 'Jamestown' about the first English settlers to the New World but it`s on SKY so I can`t watch it.

All you need is a mobile telephone device, an ability to type on a keyboard and know what website to go to. It is illegal so you or anyone can ignore this in disgust, that is up to you. I'll live with the consequences, even though I don't personally use it anymore, I'm just putting the info out there.

1) www dot mobdro dot com (only for Android) You don't have to ..but downloading a free/ or paid VPN from the Playstore (OperaVPN for instance) would also put your mind to ease.

2) "Kodi dot tv" (IOS, Android, PC, Tablet) is a belter (adding live TV addons is easily done when Googling for the solution)

Filming at the Black Country Museum at the moment. Also pleased to hear the rather 'lush' Charlie Murphy has joined the cast. So that`s Sophie Rundle and Charlie Murphy in the same series. And Aiden Gillan has joined the cast as well.

Also, Stephen Knight has mentioned that he`s had some interest from a few 'respectable parties' with regards to a potential 'Peaky Blinders Musical'. Keep your eyes peeled.

I'd love to mate but I can't spray paint for the life of me. I'd have to get my crayon and stencil set out
