Production Notes

Sally Woodward Gentle optioned Luke Jennings’ “Codename Villanelle” in 2014, saying that “the notion of a female assassin was not unique,” but that Jennings’ take was “fresh, intelligent and tonally much bolder than others“, adding that she was particularly interested because “It wasn’t exploitative. We really enjoyed the character of Villanelle and the inventiveness of her kills, but we were particularly engaged with the mutual obsession between the women“. Following the stage success of Fleabag, Phoebe Waller-Bridge was recruited to write the show, which was then commissioned by BBC America in November 2016.

Sandra Oh was the first to be cast in June 2017, as the title character Eve Polastri. For the role of Villanelle, the production considered over 100 actors before Jodie Comer was cast, about a month after Sandra Oh. Her first audition involved acting out the kitchen scene from “I Have a Thing About Bathrooms” with Sandra, where the two clicked. Initially, Phoebe Waller-Bridge had considered casting herself as either Eve or Villanelle, but discarded this as she wanted the larger age gap between the two leads.

Filming for the first series began on 17 July 2017 in Tuscany, extending to further locations in Paris, Berlin, Bucharest, Cheshunt, Turville, London and West London Film Studios.

Shortly before its premiere, Killing Eve was renewed for a second series.

What the critics said

BBC America made 7 out of the eventual 8 episodes available to critics, along with a preview of the finale. Nothing feels like it’s going to be neatly wrapped up, though, and that’s a good thing. The time we spend with Villanelle and Eve goes by far too quickly, and the show’s exceptional cast (including Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Fiona Shaw, David Haig, and Owen McDonnell) all add wonderful layers to the story that give Villanelle’s killing sprees real stakes, especially as Eve gets closer to discovering who she is. Killing Eve is a spy story, a murder mystery, a spellbinding character drama, and a gloriously wicked comedy. It all comes together to make one of the year’s most delightful and captivating series that will hopefully play on for many seasons to come. (Allison Keene – Collider, April 5, 2018)

Critics Consensus: Seductive and surprising, Killing Eves’ twist on the spy vs. spy conceit rewards viewers with an audaciously entertaining show that finally makes good use of Sandra Oh’s talents.
