Vigil (2021): S01E05


Vigil is a British police procedural television miniseries created by Tom Edge and produced by World Productions.

The six-part series commenced on BBC One in August 2021. It stars Suranne Jones, Rose Leslie, Shaun Evans, Paterson Joseph and Martin Compston. The series is set in Scotland and much of the action takes place on a fictional nuclear-powered submarine.


Glover tells Silva that Jackie Hamilton has been killed by a nerve agent which continues to be present in a key part of the submarine. We learn more about Silva and Longacre’s past relationship. Ben Oakley from the peace camp, who turns out to be spying for the Russians, poses as a whistleblower on Britain’s nuclear activities and hoodwinks Jade Antoniak’s father, a prominent Scottish politician, into arranging for the Chinese to give him political asylum. Glover and Silva don protective gear in a dangerous assignment to examine Jackie Hamilton’s body and the surrounding sealed-off area to find clues as to why she died and to make the area safe from further contamination. When Silva returns, she is overpowered by Doward, the officer who replaced Burke. Doward traps her in the torpedo tube and starts to fill it with seawater.
