Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Based on a novel by Hugh C. Rae, the three-episode British miniseries The Marksman starred David Threlfall as the title character. The story revolved around Weaver (Threlfall), an operative in the British Secret Service. Dragged into a complex murder scheme, Weaver had to figure a way to extricate himself without being arrested for a crime he didn't commit. Each episode ran 55 minutes, an "official" hour on British television. The Marksman was shown by BBC2 in 1988.
