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…

Well, we say ‘unexpected’, but in fact it was pretty obvious that dear old Bill (David Haig) was going to be a victim of Villanelle’s murderous passion, practically from…
