Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie Star in a Spy Thriller Set in Egypt and Here’s Why You Need to Watch It

Civilian-manned checkpoints everywhere, cars are on fire, tear gas in the streets, guns firing in the air. It’s January 2011 and we’re in Cairo with none other than a Bond-like Tom Hiddleston (and his sharp cheekbones) as The Night Manager for the fictional Nefertiti Hotel.

BBC’s latest series stars Hiddleston as a polite, calm, a little mysterious, very English and astonishingly handsome hero, and Hugh Laurie as a baddie so evil he might as well just stroke a fluffy white cat. Upon hearing the news of this series’ existence and watching it three seconds after, we’ve learned one thing: EVERY EGYPTIAN NEEDS TO WATCH IT. We give you some of the reasons:

 

 

 

Look how gorgeous they’re showing Cairo

See you guys, it’s not just deserts! There’s buildings with people and stuff.

 

 

 

And how they’re portraying #Jan25 revolution in a truthful way

BAM! Tom Hiddleston is at a protest! Why aren’t we with you?

Everything was Tom Hiddleston speaking Arabic, and nothing else mattered

Look how happy and excited that Egyptian guy looks as he says “Mubarak got ousted”

This Egyptian guy was every single one of us on #Jan25

Actually wait, not just him

But all of these Egyptians

And Ramses Hilton made a cheeky cameo

Who’s Youssef? Does he work there? *heads to Ramses Hilton*

 

 

 

When Hugh Laurie asked Tom Hiddleston this very important question

They also showed how gorgeous Cairo Tower and Grand Hyatt Hotel are

And Downtown Cairo

Isn’t that just right across from Zigzag?

We hope the meter was on!

 

 

 

Good on you Tom Hiddleston for not getting ripped off like the rest of us

But most importantly, when Tom Hiddlestone broke down and cried and our little fragile hearts couldn’t take it anymore

We’ve talked to a reliable source that told us that Tom Hiddleston struggled a little bit with learning Arabic, but watching the first episode showed us that he has got it all covered. The first episode ends with Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie outside of Cairo, but we hope they come back again.
