You have your mother’s common sense but your father’s devilment. I see them fighting. Let your mother win.

This is why I, personally, love the show. The script is so detailed it is brilliant, the actors/characters are fantastic and the realization is stunning. The Shelby’s were real. In the rocky economic of the 1920’s, they rule Birmingham and it is fascinating to watch. Add to this one of the best modern soundtracks out there and you have a meticulously detailed and interesting masterpiece.

Peaky Blinders is becoming more and more popular.



Summary Peaky Blinders is based on a true story. The Shelbys were a crime family that lived in Britain in the beginning of the 19th century. Taking advantage of the economic downfall after the war, they ruled the streets ruthlessly.
