Review

With his slow-blinking, sad, blue eyes, Tommy Shelby always tends to look haunted, and now he has good reason. If you have yet to see the previous episode, best not read on, but it dealt one of those heavy blows that Peaky Blinders delivers like a dirty great steam hammer on a Birmingham assembly line. And that was only episode two.

Now Tommy must hit back against the Italians, and it would help if his family weren’t falling out among themselves, with Arthur and John (“We’re just bin men”) jealous of pen-pusher Michael.

Tommy himself baffles everyone by heading off to Wales with his infant son Charlie in the back of a Gypsy caravan, on a sort of pilgrimage. I love the way he talks to Charlie as if he’s a grown-up (“There’s a few things we need to get straight…”). Perhaps it’s time he treated his brothers like adults, too.

Summary

Tommy responds to the Italians' actions, setting him on a path of deadly vengeance that threatens to take him to his darkest place yet - and could also splinter the family. And when he meets Grand Duchess Izabella, the real force behind his mission, he discovers there's a traitor in his paymasters' midst - one who could unravel the entire plan. Meanwhile, Polly realises the depths of her new friend's intentions for her, and Linda implores an increasingly guilty Arthur to give up the criminal life.
