All Critics (85) | Top Critics (25)

With style and verve, Phoebe Waller-Bridge has adapted Luke Jennings' Codename Villanelle novellas about the co-dependent joust between a spook and an assassin.

Fiona Shaw is excellent as the gimlet-eyed head of MI6's Russia division.

[Jodie Comer] plays Villanelle, a gorgeous, magnetic, sociopathic serial killer, all gleeful brutality and spite, in Killing Eve, 2018's best TV show... It's a piercing jolt of a performance that hits you like a hairpin to the eyeball.

Killing Eve is completely delightful, and I think now that Waller-Bridge really might, after all, be the best thing to happen to women and TV since Sarah Jane Smith snuck aboard the Tardis in 1973.

The story hurtles along at a fast pace, shedding characters along the way. You'll think, oh man, they can't do that. And then they do. And the show just gets better.

It's a surprisingly fresh, taut and entertaining take on a thoroughly durable genre.
