Good news for Peaky Blinders fans, of which there are many. Irish actor Cillian Murphy has said that he has no plans to leave the show anytime soon as the writing is just so good.

The Cork star told RadioTimes; "I'm filming the fourth [series] in September, which is set in the mid to late 1920s, and I know that Steve Knight [writer/creator] is keen for Tommy to be seen as the first air-raid sirens go off for the Second World War."

He continued: "I would embrace that as long as the writing stayed strong."

For those that haven't seen it, the series is a historical drama set in Birmingham focusing on the historic Peaky Blinders gang and their ambitious and highly dangerous boss Tommy Shelby (played by Murphy).

Murphy also praised the quality of television shows these days saying; "What is changing on this side of the pond is that we're being given time to let characters evolve over four or five series, which wasn't always the case before.

"We're in a golden time for television."
