As filming resumes on BBC One's new thriller Vigil, from the makers of Line of Duty, a first look image has been released of Suranne Jones and Shaun Evans in character, taken earlier this year.
Vigil tells of the mysterious disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler and a death on-board a Trident nuclear submarine, which brings the police into conflict with the Navy and British security services.
Suranne Jones' character DCI Amy Silva leads an investigation on land and at sea into a conspiracy that threatens the very heart of Britain’s nuclear deterrent. And Shaun Evans - also visible in the image released today - plays Chief Petty Officer Elliot Glover.
The six-part series has been written and created by BAFTA-nominated writer Tom Edge, with some episodes will also be written by Ed Macdonald and Chandni Lakhani and directed by BAFTA-winner James Strong and Isabelle Sieb.
The image released today was taken earlier this year, before production was paused in line with Covid-19 guidelines, but as filming resumes near Glasgow, the BBC have said "Together with independent health and safety consultants, in full consultation with industry partners, and in accordance with all current government guidelines, the Vigil production team will adhere to comprehensive production protocols to ensure that the series is produced in a safe and responsible manner during this time of global pandemic."
Vigil will also star Rose Leslie, Anjli Mohindra, Martin Compston, Paterson Joseph, Connor Swindells, Adam James and Gary Lewis. And today some new names have been added to the cast including Stephen Dillane, Lolita Chakrabarti, Daniel Portman, Lorne MacFadyen, Stephen McCole, Tom Gill, Lois Chimimba, Anita Vettesse, Bobby Rainsbury, Cristian Ortega and Lauren Lyle.
Vigil will air in 2021 on BBC One
