Peaky Blinders (2013)
Peaky Blinders is a British historical crime drama television series starring Cillian Murphy as a gangster operating in Birmingham, England, during the aftermath of World War I. The series was created by Steven Knight, and produced by Caryn Mandabach Productions and Tiger Aspect Productions.
The first series aired on BBC Two on 13 September 2013 and ran for six episodes. The second series premiered on 2 October 2014. A third series has been commissioned.
Peaky Blinders is a gangster family epic set in Birmingham, England in 1919, just after the First World War. The story centres on the historic Peaky Blinders gang and their ambitious and highly dangerous boss Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy). The gang comes to the attention of Chief Inspector Chester Campbell (played by Sam Neill), a detective in the Royal Irish Constabulary sent over from Belfast (where he'd been sent to clean up the city of the IRA, gangs, and common criminals). Winston Churchill (played by Andy Nyman) charged him with suppressing fomenting disorder and uprising in Birmingham and recovering a stolen cache of arms meant to be shipped to Libya.
The second series is set two years after the first and sees "the Shelby family expand their empire South and North while maintaining a stronghold in their Birmingham heartland". Beginning in 1921, it ends with an exciting climax at Epsom race-course on "Derby Day" in June 1922.
And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.
