In the early part of the series when the group was still struggling to survive in Birmingham, Polly served as part advisor to Tommy and part devil's advocate. Chinn, Carl (2019).

Ці та інші дані Стівену Найту передали мама-тато, які росли в Бірмінгемі і своїми дитячими очима спостерігали паби, фабричний дим, коней і ��овни, вантажені контрабандою. Сам він пише, що “вивчав джерела” — тогочасну пресу і поліцейські звіти, але принципово не книги по історії. Так само з Бірмінгема растафаріанський поет Бенджамін Зефанайя — він погодився зіграти вуличного пророка, бо описані в сценарії атмосфера ромських таборів, контри з копами та ІРА відповідали спогадам його юності. Birmingham historian Carl Chinn believes the name is actually a reference to the gang's sartorial elegance. He says the popular usage of "peaky" at the time referred to any flat cap with a peak. [2] "Blinder" was a familiar Birmingham slang term (still used today) to describe something or someone of dapper appearance. [5] A further explanation might be from the gang's own criminal behaviour; they were known to sneak up from behind, then pull the hat peak down over victims' faces so they could not describe who robbed them.

Though there was always some tenderness in her relationship with Michael, it would never make her soft. Polly was always a fighter, and more so when the survival of the Blinders was at stake. She wouldn't hesitate to put a bullet in the head of those who went after them.Intriga te seduce încă din primul sfert de oră: în 1919, o ladă cu mitraliere și muniție este furată din fabrica de armament Birmingham Small Arms, doar ca să ajungă (întâmplător, bineînțeles) în mâinile unei grupări infracționale conduse de familia Shelby, cunoscută în oraș drept Peaky Blinders. Îi recunoști fără probleme pe membrii bandei; sunt impecabil îmbrăcați, cu fiecare dungă a hainei la fel de dreaptă și tare precum lamele cusute în șepcile lor, cu papioanele și cravatele strânse bine în jurul gulerelor. Sunt periculoși, înspăimântători și lipsiți de milă. Sunt vicleni, inteligenți și imprevizibili. Bradley, Michael (12 September 2013). "Birmingham's real Peaky Blinders". BBC News. West Midlands. Archived from the original on 4 July 2018 . Retrieved 20 June 2018. The folk etymology of Peaky Blinder is that the gang members would stitch disposable razor blades into the peaks of their flat caps, which could then be used as weapons. However, as the Gillette company introduced the first replaceable safety razor system in 1903, in the United States, and the first factory manufacturing them in Great Britain opened in 1908, this idea of the origin of the name is considered to be apocryphal. [2] British author John Douglas, from Birmingham, said hats were used as weapons in his novel A Walk Down Summer Lane [3] – members with razor blades sewn into their caps would headbutt enemies to potentially blind them, [4] or the caps would be used to slash foreheads, causing blood to pour down into the eyes of their enemies, temporarily blinding them.

A few of the people described have interesting lives but most were just petty thugs, who engaged in extortion and beatings and a few vendettas against each other. It is easy to see why the TV show had to invent more overarching stories, a more glamourised depiction of its characters, a more mafioso style criminal organisation.
