Whether it be­ing buried alive by a wartime tun­nel col­lapse or beaten to within a inch of his life by Fa­ther Hughes’ hired mus­cle, Tommy Shelby has found him­self in plenty of tight spots. How­ever, the Birm­ing­ham crime boss might just have bit­ten off more than he can chew as Steven Knight’s ac­claimed saga re­turns for a fourth se­ries. It be­gins as the gang­ster re­ceives a mys­te­ri­ous let­ter on Christ­mas Eve, 1925, and re­alises that his loved-ones are in dan­ger of an­ni­hi­la­tion. As the en­emy closes in, Tommy flees his coun­try house and re­turns to the only safe place he knows: Small Heath, the slum where he grew up.
