PEAKY BLINDERS - SERIES SIX OFF TO A FLYER

King City Online ©



The sixth and final series of Peaky Blinders, an everyday tale of Brummagem gangsters, smashed its way into our living rooms on Sunday night looking better - and more cinematic - than ever. Tommy Shelby and co pulled in a record ‘live’ audience of 3.8 million, a figure only previously matched by the show on its series five finale.


With many viewers no doubt still to watch on streaming services, we won’t publish any spoilers. Suffice it to say, Tommy applies his trademark cunning as he works to set up a new venture in transatlantic trade, and there’s a touching tribute to the late Helen McCrory and her character Polly Gray.


The acting is intense, the atmosphere oppressive, and the soundtrack immaculate. Cillian Murphy remains as cool as the underside of a sumner pillow, dressed as sharp as the razors in his cap, while his Brummie accent gets more authentic with every scene. Time will tell if the series is a case of style over substance, but my God, what style!

If the opening episode is anything to go by, fans are in for a treat, and it looks likely that appetites will be truly whetted for the full-length feature film to follow, hopefully made in Birmingham at Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight’s Digbeth Loc studios.
