The Honourable Woman
Thursday, ABC, 9.35pm
Things have quickly escalated out of control in this brilliant BBC series and tensions are high with Nessa Stein (Maggie Gyllenhaal, left) in volatile Palestine, where she knows all too well the dangers that could be lurking just around the corner. Back on British soil, Hayden-Hoyle (Stephen Rea) uncovers an international government coverup in relation to the Stein wiretap and Ephra (Andrew Buchan) makes a fatal mistake. The plot is a little convoluted, but rest assured, if you can get through this gripping penultimate episode without chewing your nails to the bone, the week until the finale will feel like an eternity.
