When two seemingly unrelated events – the disappearance of a fish trawler and a death aboard a nuclear submarine – bring the police into direct conflict with the Navy and British security services, DCI Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) is tasked with heading an investigation both on land and at sea. Thrown into this highly charged situation, the brilliant but fragile Silva finds her authority increasingly weakened by the forces at play around her, all the while navigating her own personal trauma and loss. This timely thriller reveals a shadowy world where tomorrow’s geopolitical struggles are already being played out in the pitch-black waters of the Atlantic.
Written and created by BAFTA-nominated writer Tom Edge (Judy, The Crown) VIGIL is directed by BAFTA-winner James Strong (Broadchurch, Vanity Fair) and Isabelle Sieb (Shetland).
