Tom Hid­dle­ston does not need Tay­Tay on his arm to make me want to watch him on the big screen. Turns out I love him as much on the small screen as well. John Le Carre penned the book The Night Man­ager in the early 1990s, and now the BBC has adapted it with Dan­ish film­maker Su­sanne Bier ( In a Bet­ter World) at the helm. The fact she has been nom­i­nated for an Emmy for her trou­ble, with the se­ries also get­ting nods for an­other four for act­ing (Tom Hid­dle­ston, Olivia Col­man and Hugh Lau­rie) and writ­ing (David Farr), should tell you enough about this ex­cel­lent six-parter. The story of a ho­tel man­ager tum­bling head­long into the dan­ger­ous world of in­ter­na­tional arms trad­ing is a riv­et­ing watch, de­liv­ered by a class col­lab­o­ra­tion. Dive in im­me­di­ately.
