Since September 2001, the public every day reads of encroachments on their liberty which are justified in the name of security. David Hare's trilogy, ripped from the headlines, focuses on the internal divisions and arguments which have been raging inside an increasingly controversial intelligence community.
Johnny Worricker (Bill Nighy) is a long-serving MI5 officer. His boss and best friend Benedict Baron (Michael Gambon) dies suddenly, leaving behind a contentious file whose explosive contents threaten the stability of the organisation. Meanwhile, a seemingly chance encounter with Johnny's striking next-door neighbour and political activist Nancy Pierpan (Rachel Weisz) seems too good to be true. Johnny is forced to walk out of his job, and then out of his identity to find the truth.
Turks & Caicos
Johnny Worricker is hiding out from his work at MI5 on the tax-exile island paradise Turks & Caicos. Trouble comes knocking when an encounter with a CIA agent (Christopher Walken) forces him into the company of some dubious American businessmen. Claiming to be on the islands for a conference on the global financial crisis, Worricker soon learns their shady activities extend far beyond luxury hotels.
When one of them turns up dead, it's their financial PR (Winona Ryder) who seems to know more than she’s letting on. But will she help Johnny come to an understanding of what these men do and why they’re here? As evidence linking them to Prime Minister Alec Beasley comes to light, Worricker must act quickly if he is to survive.
Salting the Battlefield
Johnny Worricker and Margot Tyrrell are now on the run together across Europe, going from town to town in Germany. But Worricker knows his only chance of resolving his problems is to return home and confront his nemesis - the prime minister, Alec Beasley. To do this, he’s going to have to bring to light some unsavoury facts about the prime minister’s financial and business arrangements. But Worricker is haunted by the suspicion that he’s not the only person out to undermine the prime minister.

Bill Nighy is flat-out brilliant as an old-guard MI5 man who seems to be out of step with the slick, ‘means justify the ends’ new generation of 21st century spooks. In Page Eight, the death of his long-time colleague and friend, head of MI5, triggers infighting over the succession and reveals something deeply suspicious about the UK government’s involvement in rendition and other off-book activity.
It brings Worricker – a moral man for all that he’s also an inveterate womaniser and a rubbish parent – directly into conflict with the Prime Minister. Ralph Fiennes brings massive complexity and subtlety to that character; charming one moment, vulnerable the next: ruthless and diamond-hard underneath. The few scenes between Fiennes and Nighy are edge-of-the-set perfect, as the balance of power shifts between them. Their body language and facial expressions speak volumes so the script doesn’t need to.
Similarly, the encounters in the second episode between Nighy and Christopher Walken are priceless. Walken is Worricker’s opposite number in the CIA and is tugging on the thread of illegal detention camps and global profiteering… a thread which leads straight back to the UK and its political leaders.
But all three films include stand-put performances from the female leads and supporting cast, too – Winona Ryder is astonishing as the damaged pivotal player who holds the key to uncovering a conspiracy.Read more ›
good as the main character. Would recommend viewing this set.
