Based on John le Carré’s best-selling literary masterpiece of the same name, The Little Drummer Girl is a passionate love story and a deeply immersive thriller. As audacious now as when the book was first published, it portrays a world in which the lines between hero and villain, and between love and hate, are dangerously in flux.

Read the book instead
I was really looking forward to this dramatisation but sadly disappointed. Stuck with it for 2 episodes and couldn’t stand any more. The book is riveting without the overacting and phoney accents. Even the background music is awful. Sorry BBC this is a waste of time and money even with the Cornwall involvement!
Great acting, beautiful to look at, and superbly directed, The Little Drummer Girl is a brilliant TV series. Sure, it isn’t perfect; it can be a little confusing at times and, perhaps, a little too clever for its own good. However, it’s slow-burn does grip you if you let it, and Michael Shannon’s performance is worth admission alone. Recommended!
Such a waste of money - politically so lame historically innacurate - colours and pretty people but clearly the director cant handle the subject matter at all ...
