She has written about TV, film and books for Den of Geek since 2010, and for…. [Laughs] I did want manual sex in as many of the shots as possible! Sounds violent right? The new show is set to rival crime favourite Peaky Blinders, Get all the very latest news in Ireland straight to your email every single day. Oh, that was fun. I love hiding stuff in plain sight. I wanted it to feel like the Blitz Club in the 80s, or being at a Sex Pistols gig in the 70s, or a Hacienda gig in 1990, very young and vibrant and alive, so that was what we were doing there. It’s difficult, because you’re filming gold, and it’s like chopping fingers off your babies because it’s got to fit into the discipline of television. A gifted ensemble cast. Did Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman give you plenty to work with in that scene? Sometimes they’ll include recommendations for other related newsletters or services we offer. For 20 years, Finn Wallace (Colm Meaney) was the most powerful criminal in London.
I think a lot of my favourite contemporary stuff, like the P.T Anderson stuff, definitely references the films of the seventies. Although I’m a bit younger so my references might be slightly different, I love those films too, and I understand that. Steve and I talked early on about the idea that the first series was opium and was a bit opiated, and the second series was cocaine.
That’s very deliberate. A challenge that Sky seem to be absolutely slaying with the announcement of shows such as Gangs Of London, which looks set to give us some Peaky Blinders-style drama with a modern-day twist. I think it’s probably a reference for our times right now, because in this sort of self-imposed austerity, I’m sure that the hipster clubs – I don’t know, I’ve not been – but I’m sure all that’s going on in London, that it’s all debauched and crazy. There’s a great 1921 film called Cocaine that showed those clubs were riddled with cocaine and they were the first places where inter-racial sex and Sapphic sex and gay men were all accepted in any kind of public arena. So why does he feel a pull towards these quite brutal TV shows? The starting place was Steve creating these stories about his own personal myth, which is really inspired by the films of his youth, John Ford and Sergio Leone films, Westerns and gangster movies, and I totally get that. The next time we go there, Tommy is there and he’s got a flame whooshing behind him.
Have you spoken to Steven about coming back for series three of Peaky Blinders? The Midas thing is exactly that theme I’m talking about. The use of flames in the first episode is very deliberate. That was a fun day filming. Steven Knight and Steven Moffat are very, very different writers. That’s reflected in the different things we’ve done this series. Did you know the resolution to Jenna’s character when you were making The Bells Of St John? We shot in London for three days and the best thing was being sat on the back of the low-loader on the motorbike, and we had these paparazzi chasing us around town on bikes, so it was fun watching all the paps sweating while we were sitting there. I don’t mind that.

I like a bit of all that, it’s good fun. As a director, I don’t really start with a frame and then force actors into it, and I think that’s something they responded to. As period-gangster drama Peaky Blinders returns to BBC 2 for a second series, we caught up with director Colm McCarthy (Sherlock – The Sign Of Three, Doctor Who … Deadline reports that Gareth Evans, director of the hit thriller Raid, is at the helm of the new show, which will be his first jaunt into TV.
That’s a really interesting way of thinking about it. I take it you watch contemporary stuff? A lot of the most interesting long-running stories will come out of them and their relationship with Tommy. We open that shot on fire, and then we end the episode with Tommy in that deep angle with that flame going in the background and he’s in a pit. We didn’t think anyone would notice that! Louisa Mellor | One of Cillian [Murphy’s] favourite lines in the series is when Charlie says to him “If you were a horse, they’d put you down” and he says ‘I am a horse’. Clear your decks and prepare for a heck of a lot of violence because this show is about as gritty as it gets. As period-gangster drama Peaky Blinders returns to BBC 2 for a second series, we caught up with director Colm McCarthy (Sherlock – The Sign Of Three, Doctor Who – The Bells Of St. John, Spooks) for a chat about the mythology of the new series, working with Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy, Matt Smith riding a motorbike up the Shard, drunken Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, and er, manual sex in 1920s night clubs…, You’ve come in to direct the second series of Peaky Blinders after its look and performances have already been established. With its deep dive into the power struggles of London's criminal underworld, the thriller has clearly made an impression, and fans are drawing comparisons with its Birmingham-based predecessor. },false) You talked about yourself being a nerd piñata at one point, stuffed with secrets about Sherlock and Doctor Who, which was a great image. The Eden Club in general was fun.
@Louisa_Mellor, Louisa Mellor is the Den of Geek UK TV Editor. There’s a big crossover between the worlds, unlike when I first started directing when there was a sort of snobbery from the film world about TV, but now everybody from film is trying to get into TV [laughs]. colm meaney peaky blinders.
Colm Meaney is suited and booted as a crime lord in the first trailer of his new show Gangs Of London.. I watch all sorts of stuff, but I definitely love those films that are an influence on him. In the early 1970s, Laffan returned to the Abbey Theatre after a stint in London where he became close friends with Colm Meaney. I love doing action, I’ve been lucky enough to get to kill Adam in Spooks – Rupert Penry Jones’ character – by blowing him up with a fireball in the East End. Yes, the difficult thing is the time factor.
