- General info
Johnny Worricker (Bill Nighy) is a long-serving MI5 officer. His boss and best friend Benedict Baron (Michael Gambon) dies suddenly, leaving behind a contentious file whose explosive contents threaten the stability of the organisation. Meanwhile, a seemingly chance encounter with Johnny's striking next-door neighbour and political activist Nancy Pierpan (Rachel Weisz) seems too good to be true. Johnny is forced to walk out of his job, and then out of his identity to find the truth.

- Page Eight review by JD
Does MI5 really just provide evidence to suit the cabinet? Is the prime minister (Tony Blair) really so focused on doing anything to appease the USA? Probably. Is there ever going to be a member of MI5 who is prepared to have a show down with the cabinet and secret service? Probably not. It is however a good spy fiction drama. Bill Nighy is immeasurable talented. His character was utterly immersing and intriguing. This is for those who enjoyed Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy or like Nighy or just a good drama.

Bill scores double top.
- Page Eight review by NC
Bill is a very odd ladies man, but in many films he is aligned with lovely girls half his age. He looks as bemused as everyone else. Tinker-tailor style with quite good complexity.
Competent effort, and , although not ground breaking, spins along OK.

- Page Eight review by CW
Watch this first, then Turks and Caicos and finally Salting the Battlefield. Bill Nighy is marvellous as always. Subtle, wry, elegant, intelligent and ethical. Ralph Fiennes seems to have fun playing the ruthless Prime Minister. Judy Davis is also such a delight to watch. Great cast, directing and acting. Sounds silly but I love watching Bill Nighy walk. Such a commanding presence. He is spy for the Secret Service. I throughly enjoyed watching the trilogy filled with intrigue.
