In the world of Peaky Blinders, time has flown since the post-World War I era. We’ve witnessed Thomas Shelby evolve from a war veteran to a ruthless criminal and even a Labour Party MP. Season 6, set in 1933-34, wrapped up with Tommy facing the Nazis, the Anti-Treaty IRA, and a heartbreaking diagnosis of tuberculoma, giving him less than 18 months to live.
