Well, the consumerwatchfoundation.com made a mistake! We published pictures of what we were told was the filming of part of the next series of the cult show Peaky Blinders.
But we got it wrong … it wasn’t Peaky Blinders at all!
Die-hard fans of the show were on the ball and quick to point out our blunder. We were as quick to apologise for the mistake and set about putting things right …
And this is what we found out and it is really exciting news for next Christmas! According to an insider a new blockbuster is in production and although it has nothing to do with Peaky Blinders it is a ‘similar scale BBC project’ …
That’s what our reader had taken photos of!
The Liverpool Film Office confirmed that the new show was being filmed in the centre of the city and they said: “We can confirm it wasn’t Peaky Blinders but is something on a similar scale. Unfortunately, because of client confidentiality we can’t say any more.”
The exclusive pictures were taken by a regular visitor to the city WES MARTIN. Thanks for thinking of us Wes!
Members of the Peaky Blinders Fans Facebook page asked why we had linked the photographs to the story of Birmingham’s Shelby gang? Well, as we told them, we had been given some duff information and went with it.
So, now we’ve put that right, watch this space – we are keeping in touch with the LFO and the BBC who have said they will give us details as soon as they are available.
In the meantime, if you know anything about the new show let us know at the consumerwatchfoundation.com
