Little Drummer Girl

British screenwriters Claire Wilson (Gangs of London, Rocks) and Michael Lesslie (Macbeth) have put the racy into conspiracy with their BBC adaptation of John le Carré’s precisely plotted page-turner. It’s a slow-burning series, but stick with it and you’ll be rewarded with an intensely-intriguing, explosively-thrilling and visually-stunning watch.
