When it de­buted in the US last April, Killing Eve was al­ready be­ing her­alded as the TV drama of the year. It’s easy to see why. It started on this side of the pond with a dou­ble-bill on RTÉ 2 a few weeks back, an ut­terly ad­dic­tive show that swerves stylishly be­tween genres (com­edy? thriller? pro­ce­dural?) with­out ever loos­en­ing its killer grip. Adapted by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (who cre­ated Fleabag, an­other wa­ter-cooler show) from the novel­las by Luke Jen­nings, it is the tale of two women: lowly MI5 se­cu­rity o cer Eve (San­dra Oh) and a jet-set­ting, de­signer-clad killer called Vil­lanelle (Jodie Comer). Both get caught up in a deadly game of cat and mouse that hops, skips and jumps across Europe in a wel­ter of ex­otic as­sas­si­na­tions. The sup­port­ing cast in­cludes Owen O’Don­nell with a Za­p­ata mous­tache, Fiona Shaw as Oh’s boss and Kim Bod­nia ( The Bridge) as the man pulling Vil­lanelle’s strings. Catch up on RTÉ Player or watch it from the start on BBC One this Satur­day.
