10 Best Hannibal Episodes

What's on the menu tonight, Doctor Lecter?

Sony Pictures Television

Developed by Bryan Fuller for NBC and based around the infamous characters introduced on paper in the Red Dragon series and on the big screen in the trio of films starring Anthony Hopkins, Hannibal is a series that began in 2013 and that, at the time of writing, ran for three seasons. But, which of the show's 39 episodes are the best?

From the collection of memorable one-time villains at the centre of the early seasons, the familiar foes of Mason Verger or Abel Gideon or the more complex instalments that are stacked full of intense psychological manipulation and distrust, it's fair to say that all the gore is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Hannibal's best episodes.

Starring Hugh Dancy as FBI profiler Will Graham and Mads Mikkelsen as his cannibalistic arch-enemy, it is easily the best horror series the world of television has ever produced and has an active cult following still praying that a fourth season might soon hit their screens.

From stunning performances to bloody fight sequences and outrageously gory kills, here are the 10 greatest Hannibal episodes. (So far, hopefully.)
