Stream it: Vigil

The mysterious disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler and a death on-board a Trident nuclear submarine bring the police into conflict with the Navy and British security services.

DCI Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) leads an investigation on land and at sea into a conspiracy that threatens the very heart of Britain’s nuclear deterrent.

Available to stream on Crave/Starz.



This was an enjoyable watch with lots of twists and turns (almost too many).

I initially decided to watch this when I saw that the cast included Martin Compston and Rose Leslie, two actors who I know from their roles in Line of Duty and Game of Thrones, respectively.

This was the first time I’ve seen the lead Suranne Jones in anything and I found she did an excellent job in her role. Jones is well known in Britain and has done extensive work there – it may be worthwhile to seek out whether any of her past projects can be streamed here in Canada.
