Don’t mess with the Peaky Blinders.

I really loved the first couple of series of the Peaky Blinders. Cillian Murphy is amazing as working class bookmaker/gangster Tommy Shelby, and I loved the earthy, fire-stained tones of the shittier bits of 1920s Birmingham.

It’s been a little less interesting since they started getting rich and living in big houses, but it’s still one of the best TV series around.

Jo and I have really enjoyed series 4, even with some rubbish Italian/American accents from the normally excellent Adrien Brody. Tom Hardy provides intermittent brilliance while Helen McRory is the best of all the cast as Polly.

Looking forward to series 5!
