REVIEW: Killing Eve (S1 E8/8)

Killing Eve comes to a thunderous climax (fnarr, fnarr) with the final showdown between psycho assassin Oksana/Villanelle, and downtrodden intelligence service wifey, Eve. Who will get the bullet? Or will they go off into the sunset together, like Thelma and Louise? First, of course, there’s a big obstacle to be removed before the lust-fuelled relationship…

REVIEW: Killing Eve (S1 E6/8)

Now Eve knows that Villanelle is actually Russian psycho Oksana Astankova, the hunt can start in earnest; but with Villanelle assigned to Russia to rub out the inconvenient Nadia, how can Eve pursue her vendetta? Turns out, it’s pretty easy; Carolyn just calls in a favour from her Russian counterpart, and soon she and Eve…

REVIEW: Killing Eve (S1 E4/8)

  The gloves are really off this week – Bill’s dead, Eve’s in bits, and Villanelle has gone completely tonto. If the two ever collide, there are going to be repercussions.

REVIEW: Killing Eve (S1 E3/8)

Last week’s realisation on the part of both protagonists that they had met now has tragic repercussions, as their mutual obsession leads to an unexpected casualty.

After being told by her handler to behave herself, hitgirl Villanelle (Jodie Comer) does the exact opposite, pulling…

REVIEW: Killing Eve (S1 E1/8)

Imagine a world so mad, that Russian assassins could poison their targets in broad daylight, and despite being captured on CCTV, then appear on television to claim that they were innocent tourists. The tragi-comedy-drama of Salisbury puts the seeming insanity of Killing Eve in context; this is indeed the world in which we are living,…

BBC One confirms transmission date for Killing Eve

We’ve had our eye on Killing Eve for a while now, as it got rave reviews when it aired on BBC America in the US. Ever since it was announced that it would be coming over to the UK on, yes, the BBC we’ve been waiting patiently. Now we know when it’s going to be…

BBC One picks up BBC America thriller Killing Eve

Last week we got into a lather about Killing Eve, an eight-part series written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and that stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer. And Kim Bodnia. Yes, THAT Kim Bodnia. It’s soon to be broadcast in the US on BBC America, and we wondered (see our story here) whether it would ever come…

BBC America’s Killing Eve set for early April start

The BBC’s commercial US channel, BBC America, helps to transmit some of the corporation’s biggest hits to a US audience. However, the channel occasionally produces its own, original content, and the thriller series, Killing Eve, is one such series. With a fantastic pedigree in front of and behind the camera, it looks like a goodie. And…
