Martin Compston is working again with the makers of Line Of Duty on the new thriller series Vigil with Suranne Jones – as the BBC release of the first trailer
BBC One has released an exciting first trailer for Vigil, the new thriller series introduced to viewers by the creators of the gripping crime drama Line Of Duty.
The clip shows a familiar face, with LoD star Martin Compston alongside Suranne Jones and Rose Leslie.
The six-part series follows the mysterious disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler and a death aboard the submarine HMS Vigil, which brings the police into conflict with the Navy and the British security services.

DCI Amy Silva (Jones) and DS Kirsten Longacre (Leslie) then conduct an investigation on land and sea into a conspiracy that touches the heart of Britain’s national security.
The trailer begins with the news that a Royal Navy seaman has been found dead. Suranne was flown to the ship after she was asked by another police officer, played by Lolita Chakrabarti, how she was in a confined space.
While Suranne prepares to board the ship, Scotman Martin speaks coolly to the camera and says, “There are 20 different ways you can single-handedly kill Vigil’s crew.”
