Vigil: What else has creator Tom Edge made?

BBC’s latest Sunday night drama Vigil has quite rightly got viewers on the edge of their seats – but what else has the show’s creator Tom Edge made?

Vigil kicked-off with a double-bill on the August Bank Holiday weekend, which saw one of its main characters meet their maker just minutes into the first episode.

The show is armed with a stellar cast full of recognisable faces including Suranne Jones starring as leading lady, DI Amy Silva.

She’s sent onboard HMS Vigil to try and solve the mysterious death of a crew member but it’s clear there are plenty more twists and turns to come after episode two.

With the show having gained a huge amount of attention overnight, many will want to know what else creator Tom has been involved with before.

Tom has a string of screenwriting and producing credits to his name in recent years before bringing Vigil to life.

What else has Vigil creator Tom Edge made?

Most recently, he wrote and produced Strike, featuring Holliday Grainger and Tom Burke.

The hit serial sees war veteran turned private detective Cormoran Strike (Burke) solve brutal murders with the help of his assistant, who later becomes his business partner Robin Ellacott (Grainger).

The crime drama is based on the Cormoran Strike detective novels written by J. K. Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

Elsewhere, Tom has worked on something much less dark, having created and produced hit sitcom Lovesick.

Starring Johnny Flynn as unlucky-in-love 20-something Dylan, he decides to take the unconventional route of letting all his exes know he’s contracted chlamydia.

It was originally named Scrotal Recall before being renamed upon its move to Netflix, where all three delightful seasons are available to watch.

The show also stars Misfits’ Antonia Thomas and The Crown’s Daniel Ings as Dylan’s best friends Evie and Luke, who are equally as chaotic.

Tom also has writing and additional material credits for a handful of episodes for The Crown, having written season two episode, Paterfamilias.

The episode sees Prince Charles attend his father Philip’s alma mater Gordonstoun, with the latter seen reminiscing about the life-changing difficulties he experienced whilst attending there.

Vigil continues tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
