David Hare concludes his trilogy of films about MI5 renegade Johnny Worricker with another fugue on power, secrets and the British establishment. Johnny Worricker goes on the run with Margot Tyrell across Europe, and with the net closing in, the former MI5 man knows his only chance of resolving his problems is to return home and confront prime minister Alec Beasley.

The 2011 BBC Two film "Page Eight" was followed in March 2014 by "Turks & Caicos" and "Salting the Battlefield". The three films are jointly known as The Worricker Trilogy. All three films feature Johnny Worricker (Bill Nighy), a long-serving MI5 officer, who learns that the Prime Minister knew about secret US rendition camps long before the British intelligence community knew about them. When the PM realises that Johnny knows, Johnny has to flee the country. And while in exile in the tax haven Turks & Caicos, Johnny learns even more disturbing things about the PM, before he has to flee again.
