5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous, gripping television
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Where are the Brummie accents?
A good story told in authentic settings and costumes ... but with no attempt to make it sound Brummie. If it were in London, Liverpool or Leeds the accents would be credible.

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
This review is from: Peaky Blinders [Blu-ray] (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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Puts Brum and the post WW1 years under a much needed spotlight, 28 Sep 2013
This review is from: Peaky Blinders [DVD] (DVD)
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 Fantastic, 16 Oct 2013
This review is from: Peaky Blinders [DVD] (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best show ever!, 8 Dec 2013

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!

A wonderful drama, hypnotic throughout. Extremely well acted - a Birmingham western, with a wonderful Belfast chief of police! Well done all, writers, stagers, and actors alike. The best TV drama I have seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful gritty story with plenty of action and great acting., 31 Dec 2013

This review is from: Peaky Blinders [DVD] (DVD)
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.
