ONE of the city's most controversial razor gangs the Billy Boys made their debut on BBC One's hit drama Peaky Blinders - but viewers were less than impressed with their attempt at a Glaswegian accent. 

In violent scenes shown in episode two of the hit show, which is set in post World War I Birmingham, the Bridgeton gang made a chilling entrance to deliver a message to Peaky Blinders leader Tommy Shelby, played by Cillian Murphy. 

The brutal scenes showed the murder of the son of gypsy Aberama Gold, played by Aidan Gillen - but fans of the series couldn't see past that accent.

And while many praised the esteemed actor's abilities, they questioned why creator Steven Knight did not pick a Glaswegian or Scottish actor for the role.
