The Honourable Woman

Thurs­day, ABC, 8.30pm

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

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.
