TV star: 'Peaky Blinders' voted best television show of decade
'Peaky Blinders', starring Cork actor Cillian Murphy, has notched up yet another accolade after being voted the best television show of the past decade.
The gritty BBC drama, in which Murphy plays Birmingham gang leader Tommy Shelby, was named the top TV show of the past 10 years by UK-based social media publisher LADbible.
A massive poll saw 'Peaky Blinders' edge out critically-acclaimed US rival 'Breaking Bad' by a handful of votes.
Each of the smash-hit shows received 29.4pc of the votes, but the Murphy-led drama - which has won an army of fans in both Ireland and the UK over the course of five seasons - pipped its US rival to the post.
