very powerful storylines,
This review is from: Peaky Blinders - Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
I stumbled across this series almost by chance- but what a happy surprise !!
Its setting - post WW1- with depiction of the social conditions of Britain in that time- interesting characters as divrse as a Belfast policeman, an Orange Undercover spy, some Fenians and a wide mix of very tough male and female characters on the side of the gangs- i.e. Families- that run the then illegal bookmaking ( gambling -!
What a difference to our society legalisation of horse race gambling has made- ! Maybe one day similar repeals to the law will be made regarding drugs also !!
Very much looking forward to seeing a second series !
