Turks and Caicos – a sequel to the 2011 television movie Page Eight and the second part of BBC Two’s The Worricker Trilogy – will premiere on Thursday March 20th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Written and directed by David Hare, Turks & Caicos follows Johnny Worricker who, having walked out of his job at MI5, goes to the airport apparently to choose his destination at random. But his presence on the obscure islands of Turks & Caicos brings him a new problem: he is being forced by the CIA to deal with a group of ambiguous Americans who are on the islands for a high-level conference on the world financial crisis. At the same time, an old girlfriend, Margot Tyrrell, is being asked to betray her boss in London in order to establish an illicit connection between the prime minister and dark goings-on in the war on terror. The film is produced by Carnival Films in association with Heyday Films & Runaway Fridge Films and stars Bill Nighy, Christopher Walken, Winona Ryder, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Ewen Bremner, James Naughton, Dylan Baker and Zach Grenier.
