Review

“Dear Lord, make the day pass well. Let none get hurt and make them that do not Shelbys.” This is the prayer Aunt Polly (Helen McCrory) offers up as the Peaky Blinders prepare to go into battle with crime kingpin Billy Kimber. The stage is set for an armed showdown so Wild West in its staging you start to wonder if we’re in Birmingham, England or Birmingham, Alabama.

It makes for a thrilling finale to a series that has conjured a stylish, soot-stained fictional world of a kind we’ve never seen before – and made us believe it. It has also been full of brilliant confrontation scenes, the meat and drink of this sort of drama. Tonight Sam Neill has to take a back seat but there’s a great face-off between Aunt Polly and Grace, the undercover police agent who stole Tommy’s heart. Do the two of them still have a future? And will there be another series? Go on BBC2: this could run and run.

Summary

Thomas prepares to oust Billy Kimber at Worcester Racecourse, but secrets are revealed that force the Shelbys to face up to the problems that have divided them. Meanwhile, Campbell unleashes one last plan to destroy the Peaky Blinders and Grace finds herself with an impossible decision to make. Drama, starring Cillian Murphy and Sam Neill.
