He said: “In series six we’re bringing in the new generation and they’re going to be a part of what’s happening [the] Movie. I think it’s about finding those actors that you just look at and think, there you go. There is the future.

“The film, I know exactly what it’s about. And I know what two stories it will tell. I don’t know how the story will develop. What happens after that should depend on the film.”

told Byrne radio times that he has “no problem” with criticism, but added: “You can’t continue to give people what they expect.”

He continued, “You take a show like top that’s culturally relevant, it’s a TV phenomenon, and there’s an expectation of, ‘I want Arthur to kick the shit out of people and I want Tommy to be Tommy and more top Stuff.’

“Season four was that. Season four was a gangster season with the Italians and the Peakys. There was a lot of gang stuff and guns and all that. And then season five was about the rise of fascism and it was darker.

“Season Six is ​​a character play about the darkness of Tommy Shelby’s soul and how far down he has to go before he comes out. And will there be anything left of him? That’s it for me And viewers who love the character will join in because they’re on a journey with this guy, with Tommy Shelby.

“The much-anticipated finale of 2022 may only be an hour away, but our start is as impressive as any of Tommy’s precious mares.”
