A primer on Peaky Blinders

In recent years, British cinema has been producing some of its best movies and programs. Among them is Peaky Blinders, a series created by Steven Knight and starring Cillian Murphy as Tommy Shelby, leader of a notorious gang who tried to take over England. In last year’s episode, viewers saw that when Barney Thomason (Cosmo Jarvis) was recruited into The Peaky Blinders, his life started to turn around for good. As one of the original members of The Irish Mob and seen being tortured during season 1, his loyalties were to head boss Jimmy McCreadie (Paul Anderson). But after a little time with Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy), he began to see a different way of life which he decided to follow.

The Characters

In Peaky Blinders, Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) creates a gang of ruthless young men who are blindfolded during initiation ceremonies and given razor blades to sew into their caps. These boys become known as Peaky Blinder. Yet while these iconic razor blade caps were a creation of creator Steven Knight, they served as a tribute to an even more infamous Liverpool-based gangster: Barney Thomason. In real life, Thomas Barney Thomason was born at 496 Old Hall Street on May 1, 1885 and joined gangs at an early age.

The Stunts

One of my favorite scenes from season 2 comes early on in episode 1, The Noose when Arthur Shelby orders a group of black market arms dealers to beat one of their own into submission. It isn’t particularly violent but more about control and intimidation. We filmed it at night on a deserted street, perfect for establishing a mood. Unfortunately there was no rain that night so we had to fake it by shooting through water-filled condoms and using explosive squibs under our stunt man Barney’s clothes.

The Creator

Cosmo Jarvis, vocalist and guitarist for folk-rock outfit Cosmo Jarvis & Friends (and of no relation to celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay), is always a highlight on your TV screen. He’s been showcased regularly on BBC2, appeared as a contestant on season 6 of The Voice UK and can be seen weekly on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch. With his quirky sense of humour, deadpan delivery and unexpected musical talents it seems there is very little he can’t do. It comes as no surprise then that he was asked to play one of our favourite characters from Peaky Blinders – Barney ‘The Bull’ Thomason.

Who is Barney Thomason in Peaky Blinders?

Barney Thomason is a comic character who appears in Peaky Blinders. In real life, he would have been made redundant during WWII when his factory was commandeered by government. Therefore he would be unemployed with little chance of finding alternative employment due to his age and skills set. This may explain why Barney’s family is less well off than others. The main source of entertainment for working class people was music hall, but with thousands thrown out of work after WWI, only a handful of theatres remained open for business and audience numbers had plummeted. It makes sense that an older worker like Barney could fill one of these places as a novelty act – if he were lucky enough to find work at all.
