REVIEW: Killing Eve (S2 E8/8)

So Eve and Villanelle are in Rome, trying to figure out Bond villain Peel’s master plan – Villanelle’s behaving herself and everything is going tickety-boo. What could possible go wrong? Apart from the fact that Villanelle has killed Nico’s girlfriend Gemma, and locked him in a storage container, that is. Well, let’s think about how…

REVIEW: Killing Eve (S2 E7/8)

Villanelle’s amusing herself with a couple of lovers, Eve’s increasingly isolated from her colleagues and husband, and Peel’s evil plans are still obscure – but with the Rome meeting coming up, will Eve’s plans bear fruit, or come to dust? We’ve found out a lot more about Villanelle’s twisted psychology since her AA meetings, but…

REVIEW: Killing Eve (S2 E6/8)

Something about the way in which Villanelle has been exciting Eve’s libido seems to have rubbed off on Nico, as the maths teacher comes in out of the rain after his encounter with the psycho in Oxford and treats the submissive Eve to a sound seeing-too.   But the aphrodisiac effect doesn’t last, and Nico…

REVIEW: Killing Eve (S2 E5/8)

But there are stumbling blocks along the way, not least…

REVIEW: Killing Eve (S2 E3/8)

The problem with series two of Killing Eve was always going to be that there were only two ways it could go: option one, the same thing all over again, attempting to repeat the success of season one by imitation; or option two, something different, taking the risk of losing the original spark in the…

REVIEW: Killing Eve (S2 E2/8)

With episode one offering little in the way of plot development, and only a smidgeon of the psycho action we have come to expect from Killing Eve, we have to hope that this week’s episode moves things along a bit faster, and with a bit more panache. Certainly things are progressing, with a substantially recovered…

REVIEW: Killing Eve (S2 E1/8)

Previously on Killing Eve… well, the critics loved it, everyone won awards, writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge became the hottest property in Hollywood, and everyone said it was the best thing since sliced bread. So how do you follow such success? Buoyed by three stellar performances, by Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw, powered by a…
