Vigil has us all gripped (Picture: BBC One)
Vigil had us all gripped over the Bank Holiday weekend, as the death of a sailor on a submarine proved to be just the tip of the iceberg.
The BBC One drama premiered on Sunday night and opened with one hell of a twist, before continuing on Monday night with episode two.
However, don’t tune in at 9pm tonight expecting the drama to continue.
The next episode of Vigil will not air until Sunday September 5 at 9pm, with the rest of the series airing weekly on Sunday nights.
As there are six episodes in the series, the final episode will air at 9pm on Sunday September 26.
Each episode will be available to stream on BBC iPlayer after it airs on TV.
Vigil boasts an all-star cast including Suranne Jones, Rose Leslie, Martin Compston, Shaun Evans and Paterson Joseph, with Jones playing DCI Amy Silva, who is sent to investigate a potential murder.
Only problem is – the potential murder happened on the Trident nuclear submarine HMS Vigil, and she must board the submarine to investigate.

Viewers expected Line of Duty star Compston to play a major part in the series, so the rug was pulled out from under us all when his character Craig Burke was killed off in the first 10 minutes.
A cliffhanger then revealed that Burke had been a Navy whistleblower who was dating a campaigner from a peace group fighting against the use of Trident missiles.
In episode two, things got even murkier as Silva suspected that Burke had not been killed by a brain injury caused by a punch, but had been poisoned.
Viewers also learned about her tragic past, as she revealed that her partner had drowned when their car crashed into a lake, and she had to choose between saving him or their daughter.
Vigil continues at 9pm on Sunday on BBC One.Credit: Original article published here.
