He was al­ready the mas­ter of the spy thriller but John le Carré’s rep­u­ta­tion was re­launched for a new gen­er­a­tion by the BBC’s adap­ta­tion of The Night Man­ager – not least thanks to Tom Hid­dle­ston’s mag­netic sex ap­peal and a feast of spec­tac­u­lar ex­otic lo­ca­tions.

Now the same pro­gram­memak­ers have turned to an­other clas­sic le Carré novel, and again we can look for­ward to an epic drama fea­tur­ing a dev­as­tat­ing lead­ing man. The com­pelling set­ting is the con­flict be­tween Is­rael’s agents and Pales­tinian ter­ror­ists played out across Europe and the Mid­dle East in the late Seven­ties.

On the hunt for a seem­ingly un­catch­able bomb plot­ter, Mos­sad turns to young Bri­tish ac­tress Char­lie (Florence Pugh) to play the role of a life­time and snare their quarry. Sud­denly she finds her­self in a world in which no one can be trusted – not even the mys­te­ri­ous Joseph (Alexan­der Skars­gård), who sweeps her o her feet.

While fe­male view­ers will be ad­mir­ing Skars­gård, the au­tumn’s must-see drama also marks the ar­rival of a bril­liant new Bri­tish star with Pugh un­for­get­table in her break­through role.

DRAMA With the third sea­son pre­mier­ing in Jan­uary, here is a chance to see the first two runs of the crime an­thol­ogy. The first stars Woody Har­rel­son and Matthew McConaughey (above) as cops pur­su­ing a se­rial killer, and the sec­ond fea­tures Colin Far­rell as a de­tec­tive look­ing into the murder of a politi­cian.
