10 Things That Happen When You Start Watching Peaky Blinders

Hey Lovelies, 

Peaky Blinders is my favourite TV show. Along with Friends, it hooks me in, to the point that I binged the entire box set, up until series four, in one weekend. I then brought the box set, a Christmas jumper and my mum set me up with some pretty cool Tommy Shelby coasters.

You can only imagine my excitement yesterday when the fifth series trailer dropped. It was full of action, darkness and overall Shelby goodness. The only thing that was missing was a start date, which I am begging is soon because I need the gang back in my life.

If you have never seen the show, I cannot recommend it enough lovelies. However, I will warn you that it does come with the following side effects:

1. You will vow to take the show slowly, appreciating each moment of it. This will turn into a weekend spent binge-watching the lot, starting your own fan page and stalking the cast on social media at all times of the day.

2. Tommy Shelby will become perfect husband material! From protecting his family, falling for Grace and broody in a corner of the Garrison, everything about him will make your next partner seem a little bit unworthy. Shelby Limited is to blame for this.

3. The more you watch the show, the more you will start to copy the way Arthur says, “Peaky Blinders,” to people. A deep Brummy accent is always a must after series one anyway.

4. Aunt Polly and all the other women in the show will inspire you to kick ass and strut your way down any street you are on. Don’t come near me the day after watching the show lovelies if you see me walking down the street. I am on a Peaky Blinders power stroll.

5. When a Shelby gets hurt you will take it personally. Forgetting about your own family members, you will start to plan your revenge and debate it with others who are also watching the show, before realising that you may need to stop the binge-watch. As much as we love them, the Shelby’s probably don’t need our help.

6. And when a character we love dies, you will want to take a personal day from work to grieve the loss of them from the show. Warning, this will happen after the first episode of season four for certain.

7. You will start to see men wearing the Newsboy/Bakerboys caps everywhere during winter and wonder if you should buy one for the man in your life…

8. …As well as the Peaky Blinders haircut. After the first episode of the new series, you will witness bald patches of hair appearing everywhere. By the end of the series, you will be buying the hats for everyone you see on the street.

9. Anything you see featuring the cast will draw you in. Cillian Murphy starring in a play in Dublin? Tickets booked, hotel sorted, flights arranged. Anyone else with me?

10. Finally, when the latest series of the show comes to an end, you will message the BBC demanding the next series as soon as possible. There will be no reply, causing a binge-watch of epic proportions to help you get through the months until it comes back.

Check out the new trailer for the upcoming fifth series lovelies below lovelies and let me know what you are most excited to see when it returns!
