Fans praise dead good TV return of Killing Eve

Knife to see you: Sandra Oh PICTURE: BBC

MORE than 3.5million viewers tuned in to the new series of Killing Eve as fans hailed its return to TV screens at the weekend.

The acclaimed spy drama was the most-watched show on Saturday, when its second season debuted on BBC One with a 21 per cent audience share.

Fans flocked to social media to shower praise on the drama, which stars Sandra Oh as intelligence officer Eve Polastri, with one hailing it as ‘pure gold’.

The warm reaction came despite Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge relinquishing script-writing duties after the first series, which had 3.3million on its debut.
