The BBC is bringing us a treat in just a few days’ time in the form of tense, claustrophic drama Vigil, first teased on TV back in May, straight after the finale of Line of Duty series six.
The six-parter, starring Suranne Jones and Martin Compston, focuses on a death on board the titular Trident nuclear submarine which coincides with a Scottish fishing trawler going missing.
As the Royal Navy and British security services come into conflict, the HMS Vigil has to stay on patrol, meaning DCI Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) must board and investigate within the confines of the submarine.
The death is initially written off as an overdose but DCI Silva suspects foul play, and the suspicious behaviour of the close knit crew does little to change her mind.
Created by the the makers of Line of Duty and Bodyguard, the trailer promises it will be equally edge-of-your-seat stuff.
So when do we get to see it?
When does Vigil start on TV?
