Directed by David Hare and produced by Carnival Films, the second and third parts of The Worricker Trilogy - 'Turks & Caicos' and 'Salting the Battlefield' are being put into production. The two programmes will follow 'Page Eight' - the first instalment of the trio, which aired in August 2011 on BBC Two.
Bill Nighy stars as the eponymous MI5 agent, Johnny Worricker, and the supporting cast list reads like a who's who of famous names. Helena Bonham Carter appears alongside Ralph Fiennes, Christopher Walken and Winona Ryder - amongst others.
The story begins after Worricker has just walked out of his job at MI5 and is heading to the airport to choose a destination at random and jets off to the beautifully remote Turks and Caicos islands in the Caribbean. However, his desire to get away from it all is thwarted by the CIA when they force him to deal with a group of seemingly ambiguous Americans who are visiting the islands to take part in a high-level conference on the world financial crisis.
Filming will take place in Turks & Caicos and London. 'Turks & Caicos' is set to air later on this year.
The Turks & Caicos islands are an escapist's dream, blessed with pristine beaches, unspoilt cays and iridescent azure seas. There is an array of luxury hotels and resorts including the Number One hotel from the Conde Nast Traveller Readers' Travel Awards 2013 - Parrot Cay by COMO. Why not follow in the footsteps of these world famous actors and actresses and experience this tropical paradise for a slice of Turks & Caicos luxury.
