What is Killing Eve About on BBC ?

If you missed the first series of Killing Eve and all the hype of series two arriving , then don’t worry all is not lost.  Last month there was a surprise announcement from the BBC about their archive site – BBC iPlayer.  Instead of the usual three month maximum stay on the BBC archive, most programmes would now stay there for over a year.  That’s a whole twelve months from initial broadcast to enjoy some of the best drama in World TV.   What’s more they have backdated it to include previous shows, which included the first series of Killing Eve which was broadcast last year.

The show had expired from BBC iPlayer but it’s back now and you can enjoy both series at leisure.  Although the problem is that the show is so discussed that you’ll end up hearing spoilers if you’re not careful.   When you watch the first episode that shouldn’t be a concern as it’s such an addictive show most people end up binge watching it.

Remember though the BBC iPlayer is only available in the UK, but fear not just grab a ten day trial of Identity Cloaker, click a UK server and fire up BBC iPlayer.  You may have some moral conflict when you reach this screen.

The choice is simple though, click – I have a TV license whatever the real answer and wrestle with your conscience later.

Here’s a quick summary from the wonderful Rotten Tomatoes to check if you like the look of it.

Eve (Sandra Oh) is a bored low-level MI5 security employee, working a simple desk-job that don’t come close to fulfilling her secret desire of being a spy. Meanwhile, Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is a dangerous, capricious and dangerous assassin who enjoys a life of luxury afforded by her violent job. When Eve connects a string of murders all across Europe to Villanelle, she’s hired to track the killer. The two end up obsessed with each other and enter into an epic and dangerous game of cat and mouse.

It’s the award winning series literally everyone is talking about, well everyone I know. Although I should warn you that many people have been slightly disappointed by Series 2 (not sure why I thought it was as good as the first one!). It’s extremely exciting, the characters are beautifully portrayed and perhaps most importantly it’s just different. How many Spy thrillers have their main protagonists are both women, what’s more the pretty assassin Villanelle is a genuinely scary psychopath.

Don’t believe me, just take a look the the trailer – note this might not be available outside the UK – so just connect through your UK proxy as mentioned above,

And remember you should never tell a psychopath that they’re a psychopath. !

    1. It should be on for 12 months as the BBC has just extended the period new shows are left on the archive. Mind you I watched them all in a week anyway!
