All these psychosexual, world-building spy games take up the first half of the series, which I realized as I was scarfing it like popcorn reminded me of nothing so much as the first two seasons of Homeland. Don't run away!

From start to finish, it's like a very expanded episode of Mission: Impossible. And I mean that as a compliment.

It may lack the instant hit and gratification of other high profile BBC offerings such as Bodyguard or, indeed, the global flash of The Night Manager - but The Little Drummer Girl has depth and intrigue in spades.
