Peaky Blinders -- Season 5 Starts August 25

dont see another thread on this.....any other viewers of it here ?

have a question on the latest episode...


we seen the peaky blinders go to london and get into a scrap in a night club, after being approached by a new character called 'sabini'...i am convinced that alan ford (aka bricktop) did the voiceover / dubbing (however i should term it) for the actors accent....just guessing, but wondering if anyone else thought that

I love this show, hated the way they ended series 1 though but other than that really good tv.

Which actor you think got dubbed?

I love it. My missus absolutely adores the main man, but i think Sam Neil as the Belfast copper steals every episode.

Honest to God. Seemed a bit forced.
Oooh right, i thought you were gonna say you hated the accent when i thought you were from the midlands :lol: Ye some of them were pretty poor but others were ok I though, it's just nice to hear it without the character being the butt of some joke about being stupid

I read it was set in Birmingham. The thought of the accent put me off watching it. Is it worth a watch?

It's definitely worth a watch. It's great imo. Plus I admit I'm a sucker for anything set in the early 1900's. It's like the British version of Boardwalk Empire.

That was part of it, though I'm not from the Midlands originally. You're right about the stupid thing though; regional British accents tend to be very stereotyped.

The worst thing is apart from Peaky Blinders whenever a Brummie character is on TV they have to have this weird caricature accent, a real drawl and then people say they hate it. I love the accent so much hah
