From the multi-award-winning team behind global hit Bodyguard, Vigil is an adrenaline-fuelled thriller that unravels a high-stakes conspiracy threatening the heart of Britain’s nuclear deterrent. When two seemingly unrelated events - the disappearance of a fishing trawler and a death aboard a nuclear submarine - bring the police into conflict with the Navy and British security services, DCI Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) is tasked with heading an investigation. Thrown into this highly charged situation, the brilliant but fragile Silva finds her authority increasingly weakened by the forces at play around her, all while navigating her own personal trauma and loss. Taking viewers deep into the pitch-black waters of the Atlantic, this timely thriller reveals a shadowy world where tomorrow’s geopolitical struggles are already being played out.
