Fresh from its BBC Two screening last weekend, spy drama Page Eight will be released on DVD next week by Universal Playback.
David Hare’s drama stars Bill Nighy as long-serving MI5 officer Johnny Worricker and Rachel Weisz as political activist Nancy Pierpan who join forces to uncover devastating revelations about political manoeuvres within the British Intelligence services.
The story follows Johnny Worricker as he investigates his boss and best friend Benedict Baron (Michael Gambon) who dies suddenly, leaving behind him an inexplicable file, which threatens the stability of the organisation.
Meanwhile, a seemingly chance encounter with Johnny’s striking next-door neighbour Nancy Pierpan seems too good to be true. Johnny is forced to walk out of his job, and then out of his identity, to find out the truth.
The DVD release includes interviews with Hare, Nighy and other key cast and crew plus behind-the-scenes footage.
