In true British TV tradition, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is determined to send the BAFTA-winning drama off on a high.

He’s long maintained that the show will end after series seven, and reaffirmed the point during the BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday evening.

"My ambition is to make it a story of a family between two wars, so always I've wanted to end it with the first air raid siren in Birmingham in 1939," Knight told Digital Spy and other publications.
