Peaky Blin­ders 9pm, BBC Two

Birm­ing­ham, 1925, and Tommy Shelby OBE, for­merly the epit­ome of the mob­ster as fam­ily man, is es­tranged from his near­est and dear­est af­ter shopping them to the au­thor­i­ties. A life of “sex, free­dom, whisky sours” of­fers only par­tial con­so­la­tion. En­ter, as the fourth sea­son of Steven Knight’s gang­ster drama be­gins, an ex­ter­nal threat that forces Tommy to build bridges with those he be­trayed. A ter­rific opener, for all it’s built on a frankly out­ra­geous plot twist. JW
