Did You Know?
Although set in 1920s Birmingham, the show is mostly filmed around Liverpool and Merseyside and in London. Wherever possible and appropriate, scenes are shot in Birmingham and the West Midlands (such as The Black Country Museum in Dudley) however there are very few areas of Birmingham left that still resemble the period environment required.
