The BBC have today released new promotional pictures for the fourth episode of their new adaptation of John le Carré’s 1993 thriller, The Night Manager, set to be broadcast on BBC One starring Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie.
A contemporary interpretation of le Carré’s 1993 novel – and the first television adaptation of a le Carré novel in more than 20 years – The Night Manager mini-series will bring together love, loss and revenge in a complex story of modern criminality. The eagerly anticipated series follows former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Hiddleston) who is recruited by an intelligence operative named Burr (Coleman) to navigate the shadowy recesses of Whitehall and Washington where an unholy alliance operates between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. To infiltrate the inner circle of lethal arms dealer Richard Onslow Roper (Laurie), which includes girlfriend Jed (Debicki) and an associate named Corcoran (Hollander), Pine must himself become a criminal.
The Night Manager is one of le Carré’s most beloved and critically acclaimed books. A fusion of spy story and tale of organised crime, the novel was a bestseller in the United States and the UK, translated into over 20 languages and has sold over a million copies in North America alone
The fourth episode will be broadcast on Sunday the 13th of March from 9:00pm to 10:00pm. More promotional pictures and the fourth episode’s synopsis below:
However, as Pine and Jed’s relationship develops and tension grows, Corky’s fierce jealousy gets the better of him and he threatens to expose Pine if he steps out of line.
Meanwhile, in Madrid, Burr puts pressure on Apostol to help her translate the information she has been given on Roper’s offshore operation. Having joined the dots together, Burr shares the documents with government legal advisor Harry Palfrey, who confirms her suspicions that the Roper has been buying arms and making deals with those inside the British government.
With a tip-off that the arms deal will be taking place in Istanbul and that Pine will be present, Burr sends reinforcements in. However, when they arrive it is clear that Pine is in deep and his cover is at risk.
