By now you’ve hopefully heard of the BBC America Drama ‘Killing Eve’.
This short series focuses on the hired killer Villanelle and Security Officer Eve who has been following this mysterious female killer. The dynamic between the two female leads is unlike anything I’ve seen before on TV.
Eve has always been obsessed with crime stories and the unsolved patterns her higher ups have missed. When she gets the opportunity to join MI5 and investigate murders she believes to be linked there is no way she would say no. But whilst Eve gets ever nearer so does Villanelle. She takes great pleasure in the chase, coming very close to Eve and her team and will plough down anyone in her way, quite literally. But when they finally come face to face, when we finally learn who she’s working for, it’s not at all what we expect…
Both Jodie Comer (Villanelle) and Sandra Oh (Eve) are fantastic in this. Disappointingly there are only 8 episodes of the series but I, along with many others, are hopeful for another series.
You can catch up with Killing Eve on the BBC iPlayer now.
