The Night Manager: Jed

YES. I’ve finished watching BBC’s The Night Manager. Six episodes all. At the close of the sixth I was, well, that’s quick. What is it they say? Time flies when you’re having fun.

I liked that the adaptation stayed faithful to the novel as was possible. I especially liked that readers of the book have now seen (versus having only a mental image of) Jed, played by Elizabeth Debicki who incidentally is now my new fave actress. Debicki, statuesque at 6’2″, is the perfect Jed. Plus, her palpable chemistry with Jonathan Pine, the night manager, played by Tom Hiddleston (anybody who’s seen Thor knows him as Loki) brings to audiences the pair’s instant and mutual attraction without which the elusive arms dealing ring and it’s leader wouldn’t have been brought down.
