Trivia

The scene where Combo is released from prison (episode 3) was shot at Oakham Enterprise Park in Rutland. A former prison, the site is now operated as a business park with the former cell blocks now available to hire for private events. See more »

Goofs

There are a number of turns of phrase used throughout the series, largely Americanisations, which didn't come into use in the UK until much later; Referring to individuals as "dude", referring to a mixed-sex group as "guys", terms such as "I'm Good", "hot mess" etc. I would assume the blame for this lies with the young cast members being allowed some element of improvisation whilst being unaware of the linguistic norms of the period.

Great filming and acting,disappointed with sound.
3 December 2015 | by ianhomesSee all my reviews

I own all of Shane Meadows work,massive fan,I don't normally leave reviews but to me the sound was a let down,I know there are fans of linear stuff but I much prefer full on HD surround,with such good music why not? 2.0 stereo on blu ray! Anyone know why? It would have been nice to have the deleted scenes replaced for the release-except the sniff banging stuff- The missing prison scenes from combo would have given me a little more sympathy, and I thought the appearance of Paddy Considine was wonderfully sinister,just love him! but I suppose that Is out of his-Meadows- hands ,Any way, loved it, laughed, cried and winced! I will miss these characters. Was this review helpful?
