Hopefully it'll be the Birmingham version of Boardwalk Empire...or at least not be awful, that's all I'm hoping for :P

My Great Grandparents were from Small Heath, but a few years later. I'm watching now.

This is meant to be the English version of Boardwalk Empire. Have a keen interest in this as from the area.

So far, I'm liking it more than Boardwalk Empire. Nice to see a British production with such good production values. Good cast, too.

This is ludicrous - there's no sign of a Brummie accent, and they've even got a Rastafarian in it. Did Rastas even exist in 1919 Even if they did, would there have been any living in Birmingham?

You're not too hot on history then.

Are you someone who believes the brummie accent is the Black Country accent that those from Wolverhampton use? Birmingham has many accents from all over the UK, and has its own core accent far different from the Black Country Drawl.

I would say a Birmingham accent is more closely linked to the Liverpool accent than it is the Black Country accent due to the Canal routes.

According to Wikipedia, Rastafarianism started in the 1930s.

I wanted to like this but at the moment I'm just finding it too boring and really pretentious.

I agree, Cillian Murphy is an amazing actor. And yes, really impressive production values.

No I don't think it's the same as the Wolverhampton accent, but it's a much thicker accent than is being spoken in this prog.

Locks does not automatically equal Rasta FGS.
IIRC Rasta and locksing their hair comes from a reference to the description of Moses's hair.

He's very charismatic. Liked him since 28 Days Later and Red Eye.

Really? I think one or two of them are laying it on with a trowel, and I grew up in Small Heath.

I've been there. If I'd thought to look earlier it would have added an extra frisson to the show!

I was there 2 weeks ago. It really does look like the bit where they make the chains.


eta: Yes, it is.

We went a couple of years ago, and to Beamish the year before. Unfortunately, I tend to get them mixed up. I'll have to look out the photos and videos before next week.

Edit. Good spot!
