Plot Synopsis

WORRICKER is comprised of two made-for-TV movies, which continue the story of MI5 spy Johnny Worricker from PAGE EIGHT, a 2011 TV movie. In "Turks & Caicos," Worricker, who has just left his job at MI5, escapes to the distant islands of Turks & Caicos, where an order from the CIA puts him back to work. Then, in "Salting the Battlefield," the Worricker trilogy concludes with Johnny and Margot managing to stay ahead of an international dragnet all across Europe, while British Prime Minister Alec Beasley and old MI5 colleague Jill Tankard desperately want Johnny back -- but for different reasons. PBS aired the U.S. premiere of these two TV movies from 9-11pm (check local listings) on consecutive Sundays, starting on November 9, 2014.
