What will happen in Vigil on the BBC?
Vigil has been written by Strike and The Crown writer Tom Edge and follows the mysterious disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler.
At the same time, there’s a death on board a Trident nuclear submarine which brings in the Navy and security services to investigate.
The story will delve into a conspiracy right at the heart of Britain’s nuclear deterrent which will leave viewers reeling.
Actress Jones said of Vigil: “Tom Edge has created a thrill of a story, set in a world I knew nothing about.
“The cast and crew World Productions have put together to tell this story is so exciting.
“Amy Silva is a brilliantly complex character, thrown into a highly charged situation where her authority is weakened.
“We watch as she navigates her own personal trauma and loss, all at a time when she’s questioning her relationships and life choices.”
While creator Edge said: “The ‘Continuous At Sea Deterrent’, better known as ‘Trident’, has been a contentious part of national life for half a century now, a stock of nuclear missiles kept hundreds of feet below the sea surface.
“But this world has rarely been explored on screen. I can’t wait to take a BBC One audience down with us, into the pitch-black icy waters of the unseen Atlantic, where tomorrow’s geopolitical struggles are already being played out.”
Is there a trailer for Vigil on the BBC?
A trailer for the new series was released back in May and it is available to watch on YouTube.
