Salting The Battlefield – the sequel to Page Eight & Turks and Caicos and the final chapter of The Worricker Trilogy – will premiere on BBC Two on Thursday March 27th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Written and directed by David Hare, Salting The Battlefield follows Johnny Worricker and Margot Tyrrell who are on the run across Europe, with MI5 hard on their heels. But life in exile is proving much harder than either of them expected. Worricker knows that his only chance of resolving both his personal and his professional lives is if he returns home to confront the powerful Prime Minister, Alec Beasley. In a duel of wits between the two men, there will be only one winner. The 90 minute drama is produced by Carnival Films in association with Heyday Films & Runaway Fridge Films and stars Bill Nighy, Saskia Reeves, Judy Davis, Kate Burdette, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Ewen Bremner and Malcolm Sinclair.
