The Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, West Midlands, where the 1900s-set BBC gangster show – which stars Cillian Murphy – is filmed, is among several new sites which have been made available for people to have their jabs.

Councillor Nicolas Barlow, cabinet member for health and adult social care at Dudley Council, said: “This is a real game changer in our fight across the borough against the coronavirus.

“Having the Black Country Living Museum on board as a vaccination centre will greatly increase the amount of jabs we can deliver, and the speed at which we can administer them.

“It will make people safer from this deadly virus more quickly.”

The museum is closed to tourists amid the latest coronavirus lockdown, and thousands of vaccines are expected to be given out at the site in the coming weeks.

Peaky Blinders sees Cillian play Tommy Shelby, the leader of the notorious Shelby family who has risen to prominence and power in post-First World War Birmingham during the first five series, but they have picked up many enemies along the way.

Last week, the BBC confirmed the show will end after the forthcoming sixth series.

Creator and writer Steven Knight said: “Peaky is back and with a bang.

“After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher.

“We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it.”

But Steven admitted the story will “continue in another form”.

He added: “While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”

And since then, Steven has admitted he has been in talks about potential Peaky spin-offs.

He said: “It’s so bizarre with Peaky, because you never know. You never know what’s going to develop from it.

“We’re talking about… I don’t like the word spin-offs, but TV series that are going to be inspired by and include characters from Peaky.”
