KILLING EVE (BBC AMER­ICA/ TVNZ ON DE­MAND) Star­ring Sanda Oh. Cre­ated by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Based on the Luke Jen­nings book series Co­de­name Vil­lanelle, it took only the first 10 min­utes of Killing Eve to know this was a show for me. Crisp, funny, eclec­tic di­a­logue; flawed, feisty and down­right loopy char­ac­ters, Killing Eve is one of those out-of-the­box kind of sto­ries which from the out­side could pass as run-of-the-mill. San­dra Oh is Eve, an un­der-utilised desk-bound MI6 agent who cot­tons onto the an­tics of a mas­ter as­sas­sin slay­ing her way around a plethora of Euro­pean des­ti­na­tions, leav­ing bod­ies in her wake. An enor­mously entertaining game of cat and mouse en­sues, but which is which soon be­comes un­clear. Eight episodes in this first sea­son crackle along with vim and vigour, and I urge you to add this one to your Must-Binge-Right-Away list.
