Peaky Blinders returned with a bang last week. Season 6 Episode 1 of sent the internet into a frenzy as Tommy Shelby travelled home and attempted to shoot himself in the head – only to find that someone had removed the bullets from the gun.
This week, it’s season 6 episode 2, entitled Black Shirt – a reference to Shelby nemesis Sir Oswald Mosley. The official teaser reads as follows: “Tommy gets involved in a power game with fascists, freedom fighters and Boston gangsters. As the players plan to double cross him, Tommy visits an old ally in Camden.”
Episode 2 will also include the first on-screen appearance of murky Boston powerbroker ‘Uncle’ Jack Nelson, played by 30-year-old Aussie actor James Frecheville (scroll down for more on ‘Uncle’ Jack).
Stephen Knight’s Birmingham-based period drama has amassed a legion of fans thanks to a career-best performance from Irish actor Cillian Murphy, the always-excellent Tom Hardy as Alfie Solomons, and a string of epic cliff-hangers. The BBC is even said to be readying a spinoff.
