Killing Eve S3
IMDb rating: 8.3/10
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 90%
Killing Eve stars Golden Globe, SAG and Critics’ Choice Award winner Sandra Oh, well known for her leading role in Grey’s Anatomy, and Emmy and BAFTA winner Jodie Comer. Nominated for the Best Drama Television series at the Golden Globe Awards two years in a row, the broadcast of Season 1 will lead directly into the second and third seasons of this gripping production on DStv Now.
Based on the novels by Luke Jennings and with the first season written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Killing Eve centres on two distinctly different women. Eve (Sandra Oh) is a bored, whip-smart MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfil her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her.
This fast-paced series is a character study on two lives, two women and their circumstances, their homes, their wants, their fears and what keeps them from ending it all. It’s just that one happens to be an assassin and the other a spy. “If I’ve done my job right, the audience should feel equally chilled as they are excited by the determination of these woman, their journeys and how drawn they are to one another” explains writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
As NPR wrote, “Executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge subverts every male-centered trope of espionage thrillers as Eve and the assassin play a deadly cat-and-mouse game fueled by their mutual fascination with each other.”
