A gangster family epic set in 1919 Birmingham, England; centered on a gang who sew razor blades in the peaks of their caps, and their fierce boss Tommy Shelby.
The real Peaky Blinders were unlikely to carry razor blades in their hats since in the 1890s, when the gang was really present, they were considered a luxury item and too expensive for the gang to own. The idea of the razor blades hidden in caps has its roots in John Douglas' novel 'A Walk Down Summer Lane'.
"In the Bleak Midwinter..."
Winston Churchill was Home Secretary 1910-1911, not after World War I when the series is set.
