Review

You might wish to fortify yourself with a glass of something to steady the nerves before watching this. It’s a worthy finale to a peach of a series but crushingly tense to watch.

Writer Steven Knight has spent the preceding episodes winding up the springs of his plots and subplots and now it’s time: they’re all striking midnight. Which is to say, it’s Derby Day 1922. Time for our mob of disreputable racketeers to make their move against Sabini.

At least, that’s one cog in Tommy’s plan. He also has to murder an Army officer on behalf of Winston Churchill (so it can be blamed on Irish rebels), and avoid being killed by Campbell afterwards. The trouble is – so often the case with Tommy – that matters of the heart have a way of interposing themselves at the worst possible moment…

Summary

It is the day of the Epsom Derby and Tommy is there to carry out the mission given to him by Major Campbell, but he plans to turn the situation to his advantage by bringing his gang to the racecourse and striking a blow against Sabini. However, more than one of his adversaries have forged secret schemes, and as he readies his troops, Tommy receives shocking news that will change everything. Period gangster drama, starring Cillian Murphy and Sam Neill. Last in the series.
