World Without End

Drama Miniseries / 8 x 1 hour

A paid assassin is sent to murder a king. A mysterious knight flees to the countryside, hotly pursued
by the Queen’s men. Two teenagers witness an incident in the woods that will change the course of a nation.


Ken Follett’s worldwide bestseller, WORLD WITHOUT END, comes to life as a monumental eight-hour event series. Times are tougher than ever. England is on the brink of devastating war with France that will last over a hundred years, and a terrible plague is spreading that will wipe out a third of Europe’s population before it is done.

Caris, a visionary young woman, struggles to rise above the suffering and oppression in order to lead her people out of the Dark Ages. With her lover Merthin, she builds a community in Kingsbridge that stands up to The Church and The Crown.

Together, they unearth a dangerous secret and must fight to save their town from ruin, ultimately ushering in a new era of freedom, innovation and enlightenment.
