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 »

Tommy Shelby: Everyone's a whore, Grace. We just sell different parts of ourselves.

All round great show!
30 September 2013 | by (Birmingham) – See all my reviews

If you like Victorian crime shows like Ripper Street, Whitechapel, Sherlock Holmes etc. then you will love this. There are two differences which make Peaky Blinders stand out. The first is it isn't set in London. Why is this a good thing? It's a nice change of scene, change of accent and culture. Peaky Blinders give you a great sense of what Birmingham was like at the time. The second reason it stands out is it is told from the criminals point of view. You get a feeling of belonging to the Peaky Blinders and despite all the terrible acts they carry out there is a fundamental decency somewhere deep down in Thomas Shelby.

The cinematography is great, the storyline is great the only thing I would challenge is the accents. They sway in and out of the Birmingham accent but its a decent attempt and probably unnoticeable to anyone not from Birmingham. I've heard that they didn't want the accents too strong because it will be airing in the US. Anyhow...I'm loving it!
