The Women of Peaky Blinders

Tommy to Campbell, about Grace: “I imagine being shot by a woman hurts the same as being shot by a man. It’s just more shameful.”


Annabelle Wallis
Grace Burgess

Grace Burgess: “So what made you think I’d go to bed with you after one whiskey and some conversation?”
Tommy Shelby: “Well, I was accounting for three whiskies.”




















Grace Burgess: How much did you pay for the suit you'll be wearing?
Thomas Shelby: Oh, I don't pay for suits. My suits are on the house or the house burns down.

Thomas Shelby: Everyone's a whore, Grace. We just sell different parts of ourselves.

Gaite Jansen
Princess Tatiana Petrovna


I liked the character, Princess Tatiana, played by the magnificent actress, Gaite Jansen. She's a White Russian, who is more interested in jewels than in returning to Russia to kick the Reds out. Some of the more interesting scenes are played out between Princess Tatiana and Thomas Shelby.

Charlotte Riley
May Carleton

Charlotte Riley is a veteran actress with vast talent. Though it galls me that I have a daughter her age. Is that fair? No. Not in the slightest. She's married to Tom Hardy, who also has a leading role in the series.

Tom Hardy (Alfie Soloman): “He’ll wake up. Granted he won’t have any teeth left but he will be a wiser man for it.”

    1. You need to watch the series. If you do, let me know what you think.

      Also on Netflix is THE LAST KINGDOM. You'd like that too. The second season just came out.

    The Last Kingdom is excellent, I trust you've read the books?
