The BBC’s upcoming and latest gritty drama Vigil finally has a release date after it was announced by the corporation last week.
The show features former Coronation Street actress Suranne Jones, Line of Duty’s Martin Compston and Downton Abbey star Rose Leslie.
But up until now the BBC has remained tight-lipped on when the series would be airing on its channels.
The corporation’s latest announcement not only has given an airing date, but they’ve also released some new images in a bid to increase awareness of the six-part show as the premiere date approaches.
So, you’re probably now very interested in when Vigil will be on our TV screens. Well, we’ve got that as well as what the series is about and how to view the trailer. Look no further, here is what you’re after.
When does Vigil air on BBC One?
The first instalment of Vigil will air on BBC One on Sunday, August 29, 2021 at 9pm. It will also be available on the BBC iPlayer.
The second episode will then follow on from episode one on Monday, August 30, 2021 at 9pm on BBC One. Again, the episode will also be available on the BBC iPlayer.
The show will then be available each Sunday after that, airing on BBC One and the BBC iPlayer.
What is Vigil about?
When a death is reported on board a nuclear submarine, Detective Chief Inspector Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) goes on it to carry out an investigation. The death was originally written off as an accidental overdose but Amy thinks there is more to it.
Her probe becomes overshadowed, though, when she begins questioning and the crew close in on her. Will she figure out what happened? You’ll have to watch to find out.
Is there a trailer for Vigil?
The BBC has released a 56-second trailer for its upcoming drama, Vigil.
The trailer opens with a news report confirming the death onboard HMS Vigil, the nuclear submarine.
It goes on to show a police meeting where Detective Chief Inspector Amy Silva is given the investigating role, looking a bit surprised. One police officer says to her: “Yes, it’s perfectly safe.”
The clip then shows a man who says there are “20 different ways you could kill Vigil’s crew single handed.”
Then, the trailer closes as we see Amy Silva as she makes her way into the submarine.
