The Night Manager

I suppose this one was my fault for not knowing the source material – this was a six-part adaptation of a John Le Carré book, rather than a 6 episode TV series: Tom Hiddleston’s character almost out Bond-ing James Bond, with musical cues to match.  Incredibly well-executed though and one hopes a second story can be put together and told as grippingly.
