Viewers have been left on the edge of their seats as they tuned in to watch the second instalment of the BBC drama on Sunday night. Vigil follows Detective Chief Inspector Amy Silva (played by Suranne Jones) as she investigates the suspicious death of a member of staff on board a nuclear submarine. However, after the first episode, viewers were left disappointed when they discovered the death Amy was investigating was Craig Burke, played by Line of Duty actor Martin Compston.
As soon as the series began it had viewers gripped as they watched a trawler boat being sunk and dragged into the sea by forces unknown.
Martin’s character Craig, who witnessed the mystery incident happen from the submarine, brought it to the attention of his boss.
However, he ended up having an argument with the captain, Newsome (Paterson Joseph) and was sent to his bunker.
Craig ended up being replaced by another engineer after he pleaded with Newsome to try and save the people on the trawler.
It was later revealed that Craig had died from a suspected overdose.
DCI Amy Silva then ended up going on board the submarine to investigate Craig’s death.
However, it didn’t take the detective long to come to the conclusion that Craig may have been murdered.
She soon started to ruffle a few feathers when she began her questioning and it was clear to see that someone was trying to cover up the death up, but who?
During the second instalment, viewers saw Mark Prentice admit it was him who had brought heroin onto the ship, which had been the drug suspected of causing Craig’s death.
Mark revealed to Amy that Craig had been the one who initiated any tension between the two when he punched him in the face, so he hit him back.
The detective then picked up the top Craig was wearing when he died and noticed a substance on it.
She later realised it was poison and told another crew member to see the nurse immediately.

The third episode of the drama will air on Sunday, although the actress who plays Amy teased how the series ends.
“That’s the bold thing about the show,” Suranne said to Express.co.uk and other press at an exclusive Q&A.
“That it is about human stories and like I said, it is so busy with content.
“It’s a bold show, with two female leads. It has a romantic story but the thrills that come to the last episode were amazing and quite shocking.”
“I have never seen something like this before,” she added.
Speaking about what viewers can expect from Amy, the actress continued: “She’s complex, and not afraid to show who’s boss.
“Amy is complicated, modern and quite vulnerable when we first meet her.
“She’s single and she is concentrating on work. That’s all she has in her life at present.
“To say she feels claustrophobic and caught in a boy’s world when aboard Vigil is an understatement. I think she does really well.”
Vigil returns on Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.
