Killing Eve is a dramatic thriller revolving around a psychopathic assassin and the woman charged with hunting her down. It is a combination of brutal mischief making and pathos, filled with sharp humor, originality and high stakes action.

Essentially, it's everything we would expect from the next series starring Sandra Oh, and it's debuting in 2018.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, commented, “I am quivering with excitement about working with Sandra! I have been a huge fan of hers forever and am pinching myself that she is playing our Eve.

Wow, the rise and rise of Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Hope we still get new Fleabag ... did you manage to watch it all Bri (with your wife) ? :)

I thought you'd be interested in this one. I watched the rest of Fleabag on my own after my wife's initial reaction against it. I much prefer to watch comedy in company. Laughter is infectious. I got away with it but I think it would have been better had I been able to watch it with someone else.

Canadian star Sandra Oh talks Killing Eve, Asian representation, Vancouver, and Trudeau
In an interview with Vulture on April 9, she revealed that when she first received the script for Killing Eve, she was confused because she couldn't find the role she was up for. Her agent had to tell her that it was in fact the lead role. Oh stated that she realized that she had so deeply internalized racism and how she was perceived in the industry that she automatically assumed that she would not be offered the central role.

episode 5, enjoyable :laugh:
suspect Jodie Comer will betray the 12, it seems they threaten her with anna & seems that she will be investigated for her actions in episode 4 & very likely she will be murder - she might collaborate with Sandra Oh to bring the 12 down & then runaway :cool:

Carolyn a member of the 12 ? :rolleyes: if so why would she wanted a team to secretly investigate those killings ? :boring:, how she is related to Villanelle since Carolyn had affairs & could Konstantin be an unlikely father :eek:


note : episode 8 is season 1 finale :)

It certainly has its moments and is a bit of a GoT, what with it's killing of cast members you'd of thought were series shoe-ins for the run. Easy to spot Phoebe Waller-Bridge's naughty fingers over this.:D
