Peaky Blinders 10th anniversary: Our favourite 14 Peaky Blinders moments on 10th anniversary of show

Peaky Blinders aired for the first time 10 years ago - to celebrate, we’ve taken a look back at some of the biggest moments from the programme

Today (September 12, 2023) marks 10 years since the first episode of Peaky Blinders aired on the BBC. Created by writer Steven Knight, the iconic drama series inspired by Birmingham has become a household name across the world.

After huge success in the UK, the show based on the real life Birmingham gang in post-World War One, became a hit in the US and worldwide after it landed on Netflix.

The show aired for the final time in 2022, with the series 6 finale bringing nearly a decade of Peaky Blinders to an end on television. Fortunately, that’s not the end of the brand. A Peaky Blinders movie is due to go into production some time this year.

The Peaky Blinders dance show - Rambert Dance’s The Redemption of Thomas Shelby - has also announced a number of new theatre shows to celebrate the 10th anniversary. Written by series creator Knight, Rambert’s Dance began life last September at Birmingham Hippodrome and is set to tour the UK once again in 2024.

The series certainly had a huge impact on British television, becoming a cultural phenomenon in the UK. The show even inspired three Peaky Blinders themed pubs, a barber shops and bought flat caps back into fashion.

Quite incredible for what was a show about a relatively unknown gang based in Small Heath in the 1920s.

To celebrate 10 years since the show first hit our screens, we’ve taken a look back at 10 of the very best moments to come from the Peaky Blinders franchise. Let’s take a look:
