My recent favorite TV drama is Peaky blinders.
I strongly advice it to BBC type drama lovers. Cilian Murphy rocks. I liked him since I first met him in the movie Inception in 2010.
“Peaky Blinders is a gangster family epic set in Birmingham, England in 1919, just after the First World War. The story centres on the Romani Peaky Blinders gang and their ambitious and highly dangerous boss Tommy Shelby (played byCillian 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 had been sent to clean up the city of the IRA, gangs, and common criminals. Winston Churchill (played by Andy Nyman in series 1 and Richard McCabe in series 2) charged him with suppressing 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”. It begins in 1921 and ends with a climax at Epsom racecourse on Derby Day in June 1922″.

Peaky Blinders were in fact a real gangster group.
