- Program Description
In this third and final installment of the trilogy that began with "House of Cards" and continued with "To Play the King," scheming, back-stabbing Prime Minister Francis Urquhart (Ian Richardson) is still holding onto power with an iron grip. He knows he can't remain leader forever, but he is determined to leave his mark on the world. His wife, Elizabeth (Diane Fletcher), is concerned that they provide for their future. British involvement in negotiations between Greek and Turkish Cypriots provides opportunity for both.
