Killing Eve, ABC, Fri­day at 8.30pm

BASED on the novel­las by Luke Jen­nings and writ­ten by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, this ac­claimed spy thriller cen­tres on two very dif­fer­ent women.

Eve (San­dra Oh, pic­tured) is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 se­cu­rity op­er­a­tive whose desk-bound job doesn’t ful­fil her fan­tasies of be­ing a spy. She yearns of a more ex­cit­ing life.

Vil­lanelle (Jodie Comer) is a mer­cu­rial, tal­ented killer who clings to the lux­u­ries her vi­o­lent job af­fords her.

When a Rus­sian politi­cian is mur­dered, Eve is tasked with pro­tect­ing the only wit­ness and soon finds her­self on a col­li­sion course with Vil­lanelle.

top­ples the typ­i­cal spy-ac­tion thriller as these two fiercely in­tel­li­gent women, equally ob­sessed with each other, go head-to-head in an epic, high-stakes game of cat and mouse.
