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.
Jodie Comer as Villanelle, utterly lovable, utterly unforgivable and, when she and Oh's Eve Polastri lock horns across continents it's going to be a love-hate duel, stoicism and fury and mutual attraction, and sea-fresh wit and pulse-fresh gore.
[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.
It has all the international glamour of a Bond movie, while also making us laugh with hyper-normal scenes, like Eve and her husband discussing if they're "too knackered" for sex, or MI5 staff being horribly hungover.
When the initial shock of the horrors being inflicted by our smirking killer have eased somewhat (though the penile massacre simply never lets up), the drama rather dips into a fairly humdrum cat-and-mouse escapade.
