Tommy (played by Cillian Murphy) will do everything he can to protect the Shelby family, particularly his brothers, Aunt Polly (Helen McCrory) and sister Ada (Sophie Rundle). As tensions rise between the MP and Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin) in Peaky Blinders season six, after his plan to kill the fascist was foiled, could Tommy find himself having to sacrifice his own life for those he loves?
Fans will remember Tommy was upset when Colonel Ben Younger (Kingsley Ben-Adir), who was helping him to report on Mosley, was killed.
It was later revealed by Ada that Ben is the father of her unborn child.
Knowing he is partly responsible for Ben’s death, could Tommy put his life on the line to save Ada and her baby as he tries to redeem himself.
Actor Cillian has confirmed his family are the only ones he will lay his life on the line for and feeling guilty about another of Ada’s children growing up without a father, she could be the one he saves.

“It’s through his relationship that we see moments of light,” Cillian explained.
“When he meets Grace Burgess in series one, he softens a list.
“But then it’s revealed she’s working against him as an undercover member of the police, for Chief Inspector chester Campbell.
“This betrayal sets him back. When they later reconciled in the story and marry, we definitely see another softening of Tommy, but we also see the same thing with the Shelbys.”
