*Warning: This article contains spoilers for episodes one and two of Vigil.
Who killed Craig Burke? If you’ve been glued to the first two episodes of Vigil on BBC One, no doubt it’s the question running through your mind on loop since the new thriller launched on Sunday.
Sadly, we’re still no closer to finding the whistleblower’s killer – or killers – and if episode two left us with anything it was more questions than answers.
During the latest instalment, we discovered DCI Amy Silva’s (Suranne Jones) traumatic past after losing her boyfriend in a car crash while she saved his young daughter.
We also ruled out key suspect Lt Commander Mark Prentice (Adam James) who believed himself he was responsible for Craig’s death with a killer punch until Silva mad a discovery indicating he could have been poisoned.
Captain of the submarine, Newsome, is suddenly being unnervingly cooperative in the investigation, while Silva’s partner, Kirsten Longacre (Rose Leslie), found herself in danger when intruders broke into Silva’s house, and later she found the body of campaigner Jade, who clearly had too much information including the password to Burke’s USB.

Thankfully, she managed to pass that little nugget on before being bumped off, clearly indicating she knew her life was in danger.
Looking ahead to episode three, newly released photos reveal there is much more tension on the horizon.
One image shows suspect Gary Walsh (Daniel Portman) being interrogated by Silva again while another shot sees him pointing a gun. At who? Our guess is Silva but with various dodgy servicemen and women aboard the HMS Vigil who knows.

Walsh isn’t the only submariner to face the wrath of Silva, however, with Surgeon Lieutenant Tiffany ‘Doc Doc’ Docherty (Anjili Mohindra) also seen tense conversations with the detective. Could she be a new suspect?
Back on land, Kristen looks captivated by her laptop, possibly watching the footage found on Burke’s USB stick leaking information about the HMS Vigil.
Following the death of Grace, her biggest lead, Kristen now has another murder to investigate and she may stumble across evidence indicating that for as long as Silva is on board Vigil she’s in grave danger.
Behind-the-scenes photos also show we’ll delve further into Silva’s harrowing past, with images of her clinging on to her ex partner’s daughter at his funeral.
Vigil continues Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.
