Masterpiece Contemporary – Worricker: Salting the Battlefield
Saturday, October 15 at 11 p.m.
Bill Nighy reprises his role as MI5 spy Johnny Worricker in a follow-up to the acclaimed “Page Eight.” Written and directed by David Hare, the top-tier cast includes Christopher Walken, Winona Ryder, Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes. The Worricker trilogy concludes with Johnny (Bill Nighy) and Margot (Helena Bonham Carter) managing to stay ahead of an international dragnet all across Europe. British Prime Minister Alec Beasley (Ralph Fiennes) and old MI5 colleague Jill Tankard (Judy Davis) desperately want Johnny back – but for different reasons. Who will win this frenzied game of spy versus spy? Written and directed by David Hare.
