Trivia

While the show has often received criticism for the seemingly inaccurate accents, much of the cast and crew have confirmed that they are historically accurate. The 1920's dialect for Birmingham, England was said to be slightly different. Helen McCrory has even stated the accents are authentic 1920's Birmingham dialects. Despite this, many UK viewers believe that the accents are watered down versions of proper dialect to appeal to US viewers. See more »

Grace Burgess: You think I am a whore?
Tommy Shelby: Everyone's a whore, Grace. We just sell different parts of ourselves.

It is good.
18 September 2013 | by (Istanbul) – See all my reviews

I was not expecting it to be this good,I really enjoyed all 4 episodes. The story is interesting,the acting is brilliant and the cinematography is just beautiful!I am eagerly waiting for the next episodes.When I compare Peaky Blinders to other popular TV shows that use sex,brutality and violence to shock the audiences and get high ratings(which they actually do)this sincere work is like needlework;fine,classy and detailed.The makers of this drama have not chosen the easy way,they have set off to make a first class period drama,that dares to be different.Cillian Murphy is at his best,I will even go as far as to say that this is one of the best performances I have seen of him.Sam Neil and Helen McCrory must be praised,all casting is perfect.Peaky Blinders sets high standards for other television dramas to follow.
