Actor Tom Hardy has a recurring role as gangster Alfie Solomon. Hardy worked with Cillian Murphy in the 2010 film Inception. “I think it is a tribute to the show and the writing that it can attract the caliber of actor like Tom Hardy. It was great to catch up with him and work with him again, he and I are pals of old,” Murphy told Deadline.

Peaky Blinders originally debuted in 2013 on BBC Two. For Americans hearing about the show, it was difficult to legally view it anywhere. Fortunately, Netflix signed a deal to stream the entire series on its service. Old and new fans alike can watch the whole thing from the start with ease.
