    1920's gang drama created by Steven Knight (Dirty Pretty Things, Eastern Promises, Amazing Grace).

    Cillian Murphy (The Dark Knight Rises) will play Tommy in the new six-part BBC Two drama, which tellls the story of a gangster family in post-war Birmingham.

    ‘Peaky Blinders’ - the gang named for their practise of sewing razor blades into the peaks of their caps, who make their money from off track betting, protection and robbery.

    I really enjoyed that once I got past the variety of fairly weak accents. I thought they did a great job with the sets of which it was nice to see bits of the Black Country Living Museum being used and knowing I've been there. Doesn't appear to be anything special in terms of plot that we haven't seen before but that's no bad thing. I did think in places the soundtrack was a bit out of sorts with some scenes and a little overpowering in the mix.

    Some of them do seem to struggle with the brummie accent. Should be pretty watchable stuff though, I've series linked.

    Enjoyed it too, looks and sounds nice, Sam Neil and Cillian did a good job followed by the secondary characters, shame they never put their blinder caps to use

    Nice twist with baldie at the end, and having the undercover cop

    Really enjoyed that. Loved the look of it. The use of modern music at the beginning was a bit jarring though (however much I love 'Red Right Hand').

    Worst show title ever though. :laugh:

    I was beginning to think I was the only one who had a problem with the music. I'll stick with it but it hasn't grabbed me as yet.

    The BBC never does repeats of episodes for their prime time drama series.

    I'm recording this, but for some reason I have no desire of watching it. I'll wait till the whole series is done and then read how it panned out and then I may be tempted.

    Why, it's the name of the gang, they choose it, so don't see the issue as a series title my self, after all the aim of the series is
    for Sam Neil's character to bring down the Peaky Blinders

    It just sounds silly to me. Even the announcer girl before the show said it like, "Cheeky Monkeys" :laugh:
