Peaky Blinders is the story of the Shelbys, a family of gangsters trying to make their off-track business legitimate in post-World War I Birmingham. Written by Steven Knight for BBC Two, Peaky Blinders stars Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, and Sam Neill with a strong supporting cast that includes Paul Anderson, Joe Cole, Finn Cole, and Annabelle Wallis — and occasionally Tom Hardy, Charlotte Reily, and Paddy Considine. The writing, acting, and production are superb.
The purpose of this website is twofold.
First, it provides an archive for all things Peaky Blinders. (I have a background in research, and I like to collect and share information.) There are links to articles and videos as well as related information about music, production, and history. I’ve also provided links to Peaky Blinders-related social media. There are terrific Instagram and Tumblrs about the show, and I’m fascinated by what others are thinking and doing. (If I’ve missed something, or if you’d like a link to your social media account, let me know.)
Second, in A Peaky Blinders FanGirl Blog, I write about things that interest me — mostly characters and major themes. Peaky Blinders makes me think (a lot), and the blog allows me to work through ideas. I’m fascinated by the “narrative gaps” that are hallmarks of Steven Knight’s writing, and I’m interesting in exploring what is unsaid in the text.
Just so you know, I’m on #TeamGrace. (Still.) 😍

Below are my musings on Peaky Blinders — and, yes, I tend to focus on character as well as on other subjects that interest me. However, be warned that I discuss the entire series, so there are spoilers.
