Review

“We’ve got a lot going on, though, Tom…” Arthur warned earlier in the series with a degree of understatement as his younger brother decided, for reasons of his own, to get involved with promoting the career of a young gypsy boxer.

But then you never quite know what long game Tommy Shelby is playing, so even as a general strike gathers in his factories and the New York mafia close in to take revenge, the Godfather of Small Heath is taking his place ringside for the big bout between his scrawny fighter and the “Goliath” that Alfie Solomons has put up against him.

It makes for a dramatic set piece that raises the stakes for the series closer. As we watch the fight unfold and the crowds yelling in the packed hall, tension builds like a tightening belt of horror. Arthur snorts cocaine off his fist. The Shelby womenfolk drink gin in the ladies’. And writer Steven Knight prepares to swing his own knockout blow.

Summary

The night of the big fight arrives, and as the bell rings and the crowd goes wild, dangers lurk in the shadows for Tommy Shelby and his family, and Tommy soon discovers who he can truly trust. Meanwhile, as Changretta plays his final ace, he sets in motion a series of events that will change the Peaky Blinders forever. Starring Cillian Murphy, Adrien Brody, Tom Hardy, Helen McCrory, Charlie Murphy, Sophie Rundle, Paul Anderson, Kate Phillips, Ned Dennehy and Jack Rowan. Last in the series.
