“Turks & Caicos" and "Salting The Battlefield" are the second and thrid parts of the Worricker Trilogy, started in 2011 with "Page Eight”, written and directed by David Hare and starring Bill Nighy as Johnny Worricker, a British MI-5 analyst.
Important things first ;)
Rupert is in both parts. More in the second than the third but he has several crucial scenes in both. In the second part most of his scenes are with Helena Bonham Carter, in the third they’re with Ralph Fiennes. He’s not in it a huge amount (since he is a secondary character) but I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. (Sadly for Ralph fans he is only very briefly in the second part but that’s made up for - in spades! - in the third.)
He looks gorgeous (although since I know some of you aren’t keen on it, fair warning that this was filmed between filming of Sherlock episodes last year so he has the very short hair.) His character, Stirling Rogers, is a rich businessman which means he’s in several nice suits, some lovely casual clothes and sunglasses (and a tan) when they’re on Turks & Caicos and…no, I’m not going to spoil it - you’ll be happy, let’s leave it at that ;)
Acting wise this isn’t really anything we haven’t seen before and we know Rupert excels at but the head to head scenes between Rupert and Helena and especially between him and Ralph are absolutely crackling with chemistry and it’s just a delight to watch two very good actors bouncing off each other. (There is also one very brief scene between Rupert and Christopher Walken that left me dying for more but alas…)
Rupert simply proves yet again why he’s one of the best and most popular supporting actors out there.
More general notes…
