Masterpiece Mystery: Worricker Starts Tomorrow Night

On November 9th, Masterpiece Mystery brings back one of my favorite characters, Johnny Worricker from The PBS Masterpiece Mystery movie, Page Eight, in a new series called, Worricker. If you missed Page Eight, I recommend you watch it before November 9th when PBS will run two more installments of the trilogy. While the title Page Eight seems innocuous, once you find out what's written on page eight, you can't stop watching. 

Here are the descriptions of the new episodes from PBS: 

Worricker: Turks & Caicos
Bill Nighy reprises his role as MI5 spy Johnny Worricker in a follow-up to the acclaimed  Page Eight (MASTERPIECE, 2011). 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. The top-tier cast also includes Christopher Walken, Winona Ryder, Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes. Written and directed by David Hare. Sunday, November 9, 2014, 9:00-11:00 p.m. ET

Worricker: Salting the Battlefield

The Worricker trilogy concludes with Johnny (Bill Nighy) and Margot (Helena Bonham Carter) managing to stay ahead of an international dragnet all across Europe. British Prime Minister Alec Beasley (Ralph Fiennes) and old MI5 colleague Jill Tankard (Judy Davis) desperately want Johnny back —but for different reasons. Who will win this frenzied game of spy versus spy? Written and directed by David Hare.  Sunday, November 16, 2014, 9:00-11:00 p.m. ET
