Watching Season 2 is like a second helping of an uncommonly delicious and hard-to-find dessert - not strictly necessary, but the pleasure of gobbling it up negates the minor downsides of excess calories and diminishing returns.
I greeted the return of Killing Eve with five stars but now I'm reducing it to three... I have said, previously, that that the writing is so smart that the incoherence of the plot is irrelevant, but now that incoherency is properly getting on my nerves.
Last series we saw a slightly softer side to Villanelle in her interactions with the young girl she abducted. Here [Jodie] Comer gives us an anti-heroine who's battered, scared, in pain, exhausted and outmanoeuvred. She's excellent.
If anything, this season is a little more off-kilter, especially as Eve dives deeper into the world of spies. The visit to the morgue, in particular, encapsulates the show's delightful inner wackiness.
The show knows when to lighten the serious life-and-death stuff with a wicked joke or gag, and it knows when to speed up the electrifying action. And just when we'll been lulled into something resembling comfort, bam!
