Kingsbridge, England, 1327.

All is well. But not for long.

World Without End arrives on Channel 4 at 9pm tomorrow (Saturday Jan 12).

An epic six-part TV adaptation of author Ken Follett’s equally epic novel.

The sequel to The Pillars of the Earth.

Already broadcast in America, I attended a London preview screening for the opening feature-length episode in early December.

(Spoiler alert: Do not read further if you have yet to watch the final episode)

“HARRY Pearce…”

The poignant last ever episode of Spooks has just finished.

There will be no more.

Nicola Walker summed up my feelings in an interview this week when she said:

“The storyline for this last series is the right ending for the show.

“I don’t know if it’s going to please everybody but it’s a very clever and grown up end point.”

Peter Firth's final hour as Harry Pearce.

“YOU and I, we’re made of secrets.”

Ruth Evershed and Harry Pearce face the final curtain together.

Standing by a familiar estuary as we hold our breath to see what will happen.

Spooks series 10, last ever episode.

The Grid: Class of 2011

HARRY and Ruth are sitting together on a park bench.

Ruth: “Do you know what it’s like to feel something for someone and then one day realise you don’t even know them?”

Harry: “You do know me. You know all the important things.”

Spooks series 10, episode four.

In which we learn battle-weary Sir Harry has so many more secrets.
