Epic game of cat and mouse
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.
