theatre, film & tv past and present 2001-2008 & 2013…
I don’t watch much television (and when I do, it is never live so I’m always a bit behind anyway) so I’m terribly late to the Peaky Blinders party. However, once I’d discovered its existence, I was smitten and then hooked and of course totally amazed that it took me so long to watch it as it really is right up my street in every possible way.
Okay, so the name put me off at first. What on earth, I wondered, is a Peaky Blinder? However, the rave reviews from my friends and discovering that the theme music is one of my favourite songs, Red Right Hand by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (it doesn’t stop there – the entire soundtrack is made up from gritty, gravelly contemporary pieces, with a definite slant towards the work of PJ Harvey and Nick Cave, which I loved but then again my immense fondness for a well-chosen juxtaposition of period drama and modern music is well documented) definitely had me intrigued and so my husband and I sat down a week or so ago to watch the first episode and see how it went. A week later, we’d watched two series and caught up enough to watch last week’s amazing series finale. Yes, it’s THAT good.
In a nutshell, Peaky Blinders is set in the dark and gloomy streets (slums if you like) of working class Birmingham in the immediate aftermath of WWI and focuses on…

Realist, writer, reader, reviewer and rocker.
The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
