There’s something sinister just beneath the surface of new UK crime drama Vigil, an upcoming series to air on Peacock later in December.
The trailer opens with a singular mystery: the death of a crew member aboard the Trident nuclear submarine, HMS Vigil. After the death, initially recorded as an accidental overdose, Scottish law enforcement is called in to investigate. However, the investigation is complicated by the Army’s stipulation that the UK’s nuclear deterrent must not be broken during the investigation.
In the series, Suranne Jones plays the role of Chief Inspector Amy Silva, who questions the nature of the initial death aboard the Vigil. But her suspicions, which soon turn into a criminal act, will lead her into dangerous waters and new, unforeseen threats to her own safety. However, the mystery extends beyond a murder to culminate in a full-fledged plot that touches on the bewildering threat posed by nuclear-led military strategies.
Also featured in the series is Rose Leslie of Game of thrones the fame of Kirsten Longacre who, from the looks of the trailer, will follow Inspector Silva to the center of the mystery unraveling at the center of the series.

The series is produced by Simon heath and Jake lushington for Productions du Monde, as well as Gaynor holmes from the BBC, James strong, and Tom Edge. Filming for the series took place in Scotland.
