Season One - Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy) is the brains of the family and the leader of the pack and following his experience in the Great War as one of the 'sewer rat' tunnellers, he has no fear of the rival gangs of the day. However, his fears through the night need suppressing with his cocktail of opiates and alcohol, as he experiences flashbacks. Shelby has a cache of guns that fell into his hands but he risks the wrath of Chief Inspector Campbell (Sam Neill) as he tries to strike a deal that doesn't quite go to plan.The focus for Season one is the acquisition of licences for racetrack betting in competition with some seriously scary rivals. Season 2 sees the Shelby families circumstances on the up but try as he might. Thomas Shelby struggles to operate a fully legal enterprise. Aunt Pol family circumstances improve and a much loved son returns and shows interest in the family business, causing her mixed feelings brought about by maternal anxiety; Arthur is beguiled by the return of his father; and Thomas makes long detours to spend time with the attractive (and married) trainer of his racehorse, Grace's Secret. Season 3 takes the family into the upper echelons of society, including with Russian Royalty, where they do and don't quite fit in. Thomas gets married to a mysterious looking woman behind a blue lace veil, is under threat by Russians working with a very unlikely Catholic priest, and experiences the panic of parenthood when his son goes missing.from£12.55 | RRP:

Peaky Blinders - Series 1-3 Boxset Editor Review
I am completely hooked on this series. Cillian Murphy is undoubtedly brilliant as the enigmatic Thomas Shelby. I keep asking myself why I like him. He is capable of such extreme violence but I think because corruption is so endemic in the society of the time, there is something about his sense of justice which is morally superior to the people who are supposed to represent the law. The Shelby family are from a gypsy heritage and it is the sense of family loyality that is so appealing, even though they are utterly ruthless when given a job to do. Thomas experiences the pain of love and loss in series 3, and Cillian Murphy shows his distress in a typically male fashion. The shows creator, Stephen Knight has managed to create more episodic cliff hangers than George Mallory, but that is the essential ingredient to a story about a family who live on the edge. Each season, shows the environment, dress, and costume becoming more genteel, and the family try and fit the image but know they are not accepted, and its fair to say, question anyone who would accept them for their ulterior motives. The violence and language is shocking throughout,each series and some may find this offensive, but without this intensity, the story could not be adequately appreciated. Some great use of 1920's cars, and some good horse and carriage scenes too.
I cant wait for season 4 - has me on the edge of my seat!
