Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy), together with his brothers Arthur and John Shelby (Paul Anderson and Joe Cole), returned to Birmingham in 1919 after serving in the British Army during World War I. Thomas is the boss of the Peaky Blinders, a powerful gang that runs Birmingham along with their aunt Elizabeth 'Polly' Gray, who's also the treasurer of the gang. The Shelby siblings are infamous for their barbaric practice of stitching razor blades into the brims of their distinctive Herringbone hats to use against their foes when the situation required violence.
Shelby, though, has greater plans than just regulating the streets of Birmingham city and wants to expand his empire and eliminate anybody who stands in his path. However, when the gang takes a stockpile of weapons during a heist, they somehow attract the attention of Chester Campbell (Sam Neill), an Ulster Protestant Chief Officer from the RIC. However, Campbell's in for a treat as Tommy's not about to let Campbell force his gang out. A battle is on its way, and no one knows how it will finish. You'll have to watch the show to find out how it concludes.
