Goofs

When Worricker and Margot are playing chess, the chess board is set up incorrectly. There should be a white square on the right edge of the board as they face it. The placement of the pieces appears randomly placed. See more »

Quotes

Margot Tyrrell: You know him well?
Reverend Bernard Towers: I helped him through some difficult days. When he was a student, he loved the idea of faith, the life of the church. So, someone had to point out that he didn't actually believe.
Margot Tyrrell: And that was you. And he didn't.
Reverend Bernard Towers: No. He wanted to, more than anything, but sadly that's not the same thing.

Good finish to the trilogy!
23 October 2014 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

I really like 'Page Eight', the first movie in this trilogy. 'Turks & Caicos', the second movie, wasn't as good, but it was OK. This last movie was as good as the first one! All in all, a very good set. I really enjoyed them. If you enjoyed 'Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy' (1979) and 'Smiley's People' (1982) both by the BBC then you will enjoy this series too. It's the same style of movies/mini-series about the world of spies. The old BBC mini-series are classics, both of them, and 10 out of 10. This trilogy is 8/10. Bill Nighy (as Johnny Worricker) is the lead character in all three movies and he does a great job. Ralph Fiennes is also very good as the Prime Minister. The only actor I didn't like was Helena Bonham Carter: like someone else has already stated she didn't make a very convincing spy.
