The Honourable Woman
Thursday, ABC, 8.30pm
Pay-TV subscribers have already had the opportunity to catch this brilliant eightepisode series from the UK but now ABC is giving non-pay subscribers as well as those who missed it the chance to get in from the start. Maggie Gyllenhaal (pictured) is captivating as Anglo-Israeli businesswoman Nessa Stein, who is caught up in the incredibly dangerous world of Israel-Palestine relations. Nessa, with help from her brother Ephra (Andrew Buchan), is determined to bring peace to one of the world’s most violent places, but many factors and people are conspiring against her. If this isn’t much-watch TV, then nothing is.
