    Polly's fine, and eventually comes good in every season when she shifts into badass 'save my family at all costs' mode, but often proves irritating in between. Who can forget the seemingly endless saga where she thought she could talk to ghosts?

    I actually think Ada is the most competent Shelby of the lot, and so often ends up holding the family together. She's a calming presence, and surprisingly strong. When she arrives, you know everything is going to be okay.

    The man with the plan, and the man behind it all. The story of his is, so often, the story of the Peaky Blinders themselves, but he often has a bit of a Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter about him. It gets tiring to go through the constant rigmarole of his many emotions, and sometimes you just need a rest, you know?

    This seems a little harsh, but John is basically where the realm of ‘good characters’ begins here. John's intentions were noble, but he never proved really that pivotal or important to any of the Shelby gang's greater plans.

    He's soft yet wildly unstable at times, and the delivery of his story arc often proves itself far more compelling than that of Tommy's eventually. To be Arthur is to be a Peaky fooken Bloinder, in every sense of the name.

    Tom Hardy’s electric performance as Alfie Solomons has made the Jewish gangster by far one of the most popular characters in the entire show, and with good reason. Equal parts conniving and endearing, and Alfie perhaps distils the plucky gangster mentality of the show better than anyone else.

    Lizzie's story is a fantastic one, and it's been great to see a genuine rags-to-riches story where someone blossoms from seemingly nothing. She actually seems the only one who can really withstand Tommy's smouldering gaze (well, from time to time anyway), too, which is refreshing considering the number of women in the show who seemingly hate him but end up fucking him anyway.

    I think Johnny could be the most under-appreciated character in the show, and probably doesn't get enough credit as the glue in the Shelby/Gypsy rivalry that essentially makes the gang's dealings possible.

    Is Michael out-and-out the most useless Peaky Blinder? Probably, unless you want him to stab a priest. He's clearly got the gusto to 'make proper money,' but let's see if he's got the balls to do much more now he's (presumably) healthy again.

    We're ready for Finn to make his big breakout in this season now that Joe is out of the picture, and if he's as hesitant towards conflict as he showed in Season 4, he could actually prove pretty interesting. Right now though, he hasn't done enough of note to warrant a place any further up.
