Ted Takes Series Facts, Peaky Blinders:
David Bowie was a huge fan of the show and gave permission for music from his final album to be featured in Series 3. Steven Knight, the shows creator, learned of Bowie's interest after the singer sent a photo of himself with razor blades in his cap to lead actor Cillian Murphy. Knight revealed: "I got in touch with his people, who came back straight away and said he was a big, big fan." Bowie later sent a representative from his label to provide an early hearing of his final album Blackstar a week before its existence was made public. "And then on the following Tuesday we heard that he'd passed away. It seems that his people were keen to establish that we could use it before he died."
