Paddy Considine’s Father John makes his presence known.

The third series of Peaky Blinders continues with episode 2, which sees the arrival of Paddy Considine as Father John Hughes – who is said to be ‘the representative of a force beyond anything Tommy Shelby has previously encountered.’

On the orders of the secretive Economic League, Tommy (Cillian Murphy) goes to London to meet the wildly eccentric and volatile Duke Leon (Jan Bijvoet). He soon discovers the extreme lengths his new paymasters are willing to go to in their quest for power.

In Birmingham, John’s (Joe Cole) temper gets the better of him, and a personal dispute with the Italians threatens to explode into a devastating war.

As Tommy struggles to regain control of the situation, he finds out how extensive his new enemy’s hold on the Peaky Blinders is.

Peaky Blinders continues on Thursday, 12th May at 9pm on BBC Two.
