    WORRICKER - I love British television especially in some movies and shows!

    This is a great 3 piece series - 3 dvds.

    I watched it on PBS and we bought the complete disc set. The set was on order for some time too.

    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/.../worricker-s1/

    Page Eight, Turks & Caicos, and Salting the Battlefield form The Worricker Trilogy—three gripping films that follow the exploits of the intensely private and scrupulous Worricker—from MI5 headquarters in London to exile on a Caribbean island to life on the run with his former lover and fellow agent Margot Tyrrell (Helena Bonham Carter). A spy who prefers the black-and-white certainties of the Cold War, Worricker (Bill Nighy) finds himself increasingly out of his element as the distinction between ally and enemy dissolves into the amorphous alliances of the 21st century.
    The all-star cast includes Oscar winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter), and Oscar® nominees Winona Ryder (Little Women, The Age of Innocence), Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech, The Wings of the Dove), Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient, Schindler’s List), and Judy Davis (Husbands and Wives, A Passage to India). Also starring are Rupert Graves (Sherlock), Saskia Reeves (Wallander), and Ewen Bremner (Black Hawk Down).

    You may be able to watch it online on MT PBS, WA PBS (Spokane) or in your own town/state or country.
    I may have mentioned this series here before in some other thread.

    Apologies if I am repeating myself.

      Rover,

      My 3 piece dvd set came from Hastings and it was a special order. I placed the order in this college town with the store directly.

      They only had one disc at Costco. None at Walmart or Target in stock. ALL of this may have changed since I did not look for them all over again in those stores recently.

      I think that you can buy them through WA PBS now but it was a bit higher in price when I checked it all out.

      My husband watched the second disc tonight after he got home from work late. He likes them too.

      I saw all of them on PBS television originally. I will watch our keeper WORRICKER discs again.

      You may be able to watch ALL of them now on PBS online but I only saw one version when I looked briefly earlier on Tuesday night.

      I do not know anything about Amazon or how those online sales work. I don't think that you can order by telephone and talk to a real human being when you place an order but I could be WRONG.

        The kooky guy at the video store can get anything in about 3 days. I stopped asking how...

              IMO the term "British Comedy" is an oxymoron.

                No you're confusing dentistry with comedy, as it's where you go for laughing gas it's kinda understandable.

                Porridge,
                In sickness and in health,
                Open all hours,
                Last of the summer wine ( original cast)
                On the buses,
                Still open all hours.......

                Over the years we've produced some excellent TV comedy shows, not so much these days I grant you. Funnily enough the majority of the shows I watch are from the states these days.

                        We have dentists with sedation in their name.
