Product Description

Peaky Blinders is an epic gangster drama set in the lawless streets of post-war Birmingham on the cusp of the 1920s. Britain in 1919 is a tumultuous mix of despair and hedonism, a nation cleaned out by the extravagances of the Great War. Returning soldiers, newly-minted revolutionaries and criminal gangs all fight for survival in an industrial landscape gripped by economic upheaval. Thomas Shelby and his family run the most feared and powerful local gang, the Peaky Blinders. Named for their practice of sewing razor blades into the peaks of their caps, they make money from illegal betting, protection and the black market. But Tommy’s ambitions go beyond running the streets, and when a crate of guns goes missing from an arms factory, he recognises an opportunity to move up in the world. Crime pays, but business pays better. As rival gangs, Communist revolutionaries and IRA Fenians descend on Small Heath in pursuit of the weapons; Winston Churchill dispatches a ruthless police chief from Belfast to impose order on an increasingly lawless city and recover the guns. Peaky Blinders is a dazzling picture of England taken directly from the pages of our secret history. They will now burst into life in a vibrant evocation of a hedonistic age. The Shelbys will be a family to be reckoned with. Boasting a distinguished cast that includes Cillian Murphy, Sam Neill, Helen McCrory

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous, gripping television 18 Oct 2013
Format:DVD
This is easily the best new drama I've watched for a long time. Stunningly atmospheric, with outstanding performances, intelligent dialogue and a perfect soundtrack, it all adds up to a series so good, it's almost spine-tingling. Cillian Murphy's portrayal of flawed antihero, Thomas Shelby is mesmerising - you just can't help cheering him on as he manages to stay one step ahead of everyone else in a violent, post-war Birmingham.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this production - can't wait for Series 2 ... please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Peaky Blindingly good. 18 Oct 2013
Format:Blu-ray
This gem of programme really took me by surprise, not because of the absolutely fantastic talent of actors on show, who each perform their roles with such breath taking grit of realism, able as they are to transport you to a world far different than the one we are used to now, and truely make you believe that we are somehow there observing them as they go about their business, but because I thought this type of series had been lost to us forever.
There's only one sad thing wrong with this programme, and that is that it's ended. Bring on series two!

Why has this time and place not been touched upon before - England teeters on the brink of revolution, Ireland boils and damaged soldiers return to a new world - empowered women, corrupt cops and competing gangsters. Birmingham has been sadly under used as a setting for drama. but this cracker addresses that omission good and proper. Stylish to the point of being surreal - spaghetti-junction western with nice cave's gothic music, beautiful bladerunner-ish backdrops of the industrial monster, and a central figure whose intelligence is slowly slowly revealed as the various factions plot and scrap for the missing guns. Just watch it. Everyone from set designers to stars, from writer to accent coach, deserves a resounding cheer.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best show ever! 8 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched all 6 hours over a two day period. You won't be disappointed. This show is gripping and thoroughly atmospheric. It evokes so many thoughts and images, immediately after the opening credits due to its magical beginning. I can't wait for the second series. The acting is phenomenal. The soundtrack is exceptional. This is a wonderful gift, for the drama lover. Cillian Murphy, Annabelle Wallis and Sam Neill keep you in suspense during the whole season. The script is magnificent, the dialogue intelligent and the set is powerfully dramatic and vastly artistic. The plot is thrilling, transporting you to 1920's Birmingham in a matter of minutes. The cast of characters are powerful and diverse, giving you more and more with each episode. This show surpassed all my expectations! I will be watching it again and again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 16 Oct 2013
Format:DVD
Absolutely fantastic programme, and unfortunately ridiculously underrated. Amazing and consistent performances from the entire cast, in particular Cillian Murphy, and thrilling story line. It's such a beautiful programme to look at too, absolute television gold.

Set in Birmingham just after the Great War, this is definitely a fictional story of a small war between gangs of petty criminals and the police set against the political background of uncertainty created by militant communism and Irish fenianism. Cillian Murphy and Sam Neal give superb performances as the chief gang leader and chief of police respectively. Helen McCrory makes a good fist of an implausible but interesting character giving the viewer a second line of sight into the Peaky Blinders. The filming is very good; interesting angles and well placed short cuts and the sounds powerful which really bring the characters, the costumes and the Black Country stage to life. I understand that the BBC has decided not to run this story to a second series which is a great loss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peaky Blinders is Blindin' Great! 13 Jun 2014
Format:Blu-ray
A gripping drama that though unusual in its setting, with its contemporary music too, worked wonderfully well I thought on first viewing. The cinematography was superb. The plot was sound in an authentic context. The characters were credible. The acting performances were outstanding. Cillian Murphy plays an heroically sympathetic anti-hero, who behind the savagery of urban gang violence is a gentleman born who wants the best for everybody. But life ain't so nice and cuddly when money and power comes to the fore. I've watched the first series through three times already to whet the appetite for the second series awaiting to be broadcast at the time of writing. But then I am biased...
Its nice to see Birmingham get a look-in from time to time. While a foreigner might be forgiven for thinking that outside of mighty London there is only Liverpool, Manchester and Glasgow that might raise a flicker of interest, there are other towns and cities of equal fascination yet to be discovered by film producers, writers, and directors, in the U.K.
Having being brought up in that part of Birmingham the show bears no resemblance to the Small Heath that I know. The 'Garrison' pub is in reality a poky little place, and nothing like as grand as shown here. The accents were off: The pub landlord, and the newspaper reporter came the closest in authenticity for the period. My grandparents were running a pub not far from there in 1919 so this 'Peaky Blinders' series touches me in a special way.
However, one can waste time being pedantic when one should be enjoying what is no more than an historical drama, and not a documentary on life in post - First World War Birmingham.
