I was watching Peaky Blinders and in one episode John and Arthur went to catch one old guy and lady. Lady was john and Arthur's teacher. On that time they were standing near Titanic. What is the purpose to show Titanic ship?

    I haven't seen Peaky Blinders myself, but are you sure that ship was even supposed to be the Titanic? Did they call it that by name? I found this forum post calling out a number of technical inaccuracies in the shot of "the ship." First Post also mentions that this scene allegedly takes place in 1923, but the Titanic sank in 1912.

Sounds like it could be a mistake

From the TV Tropes page on Peaky Blinders:

Artistic License – Ships: Season 3, episode 3 features a brief shot of a Cunard Line ship docked in Liverpool. Likely meant to be the RMS Mauritania, the CGI model appears to be the hull and superstructure of the RMS Titanic with the vents, forecastle, and colors of the Mauritania added.


The boat that can be seen is the Olympic. The Titanic sank in 1912 and Peaky Blinders starts in 1919.
