The Honourable Woman

Thurs­day, ABC, 9.35pm

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

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.
