This one's got more mass appeal than it lets on.

Top Critic

It's witty, thrilling and a total pleasure to watch. Peaky Blinders is brilliant TV. You heard it here last.

Ample testosterone sloshed around but strong female characters kept things the right side of macho.

Top Critic

While it's cool to see Peaky Blinders center Romani characters, they are all played by white actors.

Dec 15, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Jessie's plot is treated as a bit of an afterthought - which is a shame, because it could have been tied back into the American mob plot very well.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

when all its guns are blazing, Peaky Blinders does adrenaline-rush action better than any other show on British TV.

May 20, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Even with another strong showing from Murphy in this round of Peaky Blinders, the unquenchable Helen McCrory and Paul Anderson once again dominate this six-episode must-watch tale.

Adrien Brody, as the emphysemic Sicilian, might be in line for the award of most overcooked ham in the Christmas hamper, but it's still a mesmerising performance: all is shaping up thrillingly.

Mar 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It may have been two years in the waiting, but season four of this striking BBC series looks to have upped its game once again.

    I loved season 1, season 2 was good, season 3 nice. Now, on season 4: I still like the characters but I'm kind of bored. there is no growth of the story nor of the characters, everything is kind of the same, more money, different setting, but the story is fooking exacting the same. the finale of season 4 is just too absurd to even seem realistic. it is a no for me. I will still watch season 5 to see where it goes.

    Season fell off a bit and story line got a bit confusing. A couple of key characters dying almost ruined the season and show.
