Airdate: Vigil

UK submarine drama stars Suranne Jones, Rose Leslie & Martin Compston.

Looking forward to seeing UK submarine drama Vigil which will premiere in 2 weeks on Binge.

Written and created by Tom Edge (Judy, The Crown, Strike) and coming from the makers of Line of Duty, Bodyguard and The Pembrokeshire Murders, this premiere Monday August 30.

The cast includes Suranne Jones, Rose Leslie and Martin Compston.

Episode two available the following day, Tuesday August 31 with new episodes dropping weekly each Monday until the finale on 27 September.

It is also expected to be available on Foxtel on Demand.

The series stars Suranne Jones (Gentleman Jack, Doctor Foster) as DCI Amy Silva and Rose Leslie (Game Of Thrones, The Good Fight) as DS Kirsten Longacre who lead an investigation on land and at sea into a conspiracy that goes to the very heart of Britain’s national security.

When a crew member is found dead on board the Trident nuclear submarine HMS Vigil, police in Scotland are called in to investigate. The catch? The UK’s nuclear deterrent must remain unbroken, so the submarine stays on patrol and Detective Chief Inspector Amy Silva (Jones) must go aboard to begin an investigation. Although the death was written off as an accidental overdose, Amy suspects foul play. But when the crew close ranks in the face of Amy’s questioning, a new threat overshadows her inquiry.

The six-part drama also stars Shaun Evans (Endeavour, Whitechapel), Anjli Mohindra (Bodyguard, Bancroft), Martin Compston (Line Of Duty, Mary Queen Of Scots), Paterson Joseph (The Leftovers, Peep Show), Connor Swindells (Sex Education, Jamestown), Adam James (Belgravia, Doctor Foster), and Gary Lewis (His Dark Materials, Billy Elliot).

Vigil is written and created by Bafta-nominated writer Tom Edge, with episodes by Ed Macdonald and Chandni Lakhani. It is directed by Bafta-winner James Strong, and Isabelle Sieb. Vigil is produced by Angie Daniell, executive produced by Simon Heath and Jake Lushington for © World Productions, Gaynor Holmes for the BBC, James Strong and Tom Edge.
