Finally, a first proper look at Peaky Blinders series three

Tommy Shelby & co go up against a new enemy in the return of the BBC2 drama


“The Russians have made contact.”


Yes, yes, it’s very exciting that Peaky Blinders is coming back for series three, but does that line make anyone else want the show to flash forward to the age of Sputnik? The blinders cracking heads to Elvis Presley and Tommy Steele? Driving mopeds instead of riding horses?

Just us? Fine.

Anyway, it’s business as usual for the Shelbys – blood is thicker than blood on the streets – as they get bolshie with Bolsheviks.

“They’re very dangerous people,” someone warns Tommy. He doesn’t seem worried.

“So are we.”


Peaky Blinders series three starts on BBC 2 on Thursday 5th May at 9pm
