It’s fair to say that BBC1’s McMafia has been a slow burner. The Sunday night drama began with a lot of long pauses and spreadsheet-fiddling from James Norton, and not a great deal of action.
How things have changed.
The sixth episode of the international crime thriller reached a shocking climax this week, with Alex Godman’s fiancée Rebecca (Juliet Rylance) suffering a gunshot to the stomach, mere seconds after revealing she was pregnant.
I though, I saw a little bit of Tommy Lee Royce in Alex @jginorton and his reaction to Benes confession/betrayal in tonight's episode 6 #McMafia 🤔 I fill like something very dark is waking up in Alex. Excellent performance James!👏👏👏
