Vigil Preview

From the creators of Line of Duty and Bodyguard, Vigil is another suspenseful thriller with grappling mystery and crime to decipher while descending into the depths of a nuclear submarine, the HMS Vigil. There also involves the mysterious disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler, bringing the police into conflict with the Royal Navy and British security services.

Set in Scotland, the series is created and written by BAFTA-nominated writer Tom Edge and directed by BAFTA winner James Strong, and Isabelle Sieb. It is a limited series that will consist of six episodes and will premiere on BBC One. The ensemble cast of Vigil also includes Shaun Evans (Endeavour, Whitechapel), Anjli Mohindra (Bodyguard, Bancroft), and Martin Compston (Line Of Duty, Mary Queen Of Scots).

When does Vigil air

There’s no confirmed airdate for Vigil yet. As it’s currently in post-production, it is expected to be part of BBC One’s autumn line-up. The first trailer for the series dropped last May on the same day that Line of Duty’s sixth series ended.
