The show will see DCI Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) and DS Kirsten Longacre (Rose Leslie) then lead an investigation on land and at sea into a plot that touches the core of British national security.

The trailer begins with news that a Royal Navy sailor has been found dead, with Soran being taken to the ship after another police officer, played by Lolita Chakrabarti, asks her how she is in the “tight spaces”.

As Suranne prepares to board the ship, Scotsman Martin spookily spoke to the camera, and said, “There are 20 different ways you can kill the Vigil crew on your own.”

It ends with the stricken Suranne lowering herself into the submarine followed by a frightening message: “The deeper you go, the darker you get” in a poignant warning of what is to come.

Taking to Twitter ahead of Sunday’s show, one fan wrote: “I can’t wait!!!!”

Another added: “This will be the highlight of my Sunday event. Very excited about this.

Taking to Twitter ahead of Sunday’s premiere, fans said they were “so excited” and “can’t wait to see it.”

While discussing the show, Vigil director James Strong said: “Vigil is different in a number of ways: It’s about something real, its premise is great and most people don’t really know anything about it.

Britain’s nuclear deterrent has been in operation for more than 50 years and yet it is shrouded in secrecy, and so it’s a mystery to the viewer – so it’s the perfect setting for the drama.

“It’s also a really perplexing puzzle, full of great characters, so it’s simply unlike anything else on our screens at the moment.”
