Peaky Blinders: The Duel
December 13, 2017 2:49 PM - Season 4, Episode 5 - Subscribe

An epic gangster drama set in the lawless streets of 1920s Birmingham.

Tommy prepares himself as the bloody battle lines are drawn between the Peaky Blinders and Changretta. A deal is struck with potentially devastating consequences.

The family gather to find out what happened, but Lizzie has even greater news to break.
Meanwhile, an army colonel has questions for Ada about her past as a communist, and Jessie Eden confirms just how far she is prepared to go in pursuit of her cause. And sensing an opportunity to capitalise on his situation, Luca Changretta makes his way to London to present a plan to Alfie Solomons.

Adrien Brody has just been so over-the-top throughout this serious that it has been ludicrously glorious. Its like his instructions were to play every character in Once Upon a Time in America, all at once. Putting him in a room with Tom Hardy's long-term pleasurably overacted character was genius.

There's always some glorious scenery eating performances but Brody has def gone the extra mile this year.

(I know someone who casually watched the show for the first time this year and didn't even realise it was Tom Hardy when he first turned up.)

Its been great that they could keep getting Hardy to take a role and then on top of that to get Brody in this year as well. Will miss Hardy in the next season.
