Coronavirus may have halted filming on lots of our favourite TV shows, but the BBC still has a stellar line up of gripping dramas coming for autumn.
Now, we've been treated to a first glimpse of one of the most exciting – new BBC One thriller Vigil starring Doctor Foster's Suranne Jones.
Jones and her co-star, Line of Duty's Martin Compston, resumed filming in Glasgow this week on the six-part series, following lockdown.
The storyline follows the investigation into the disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler and a death on a nuclear submarine, both of which threaten national security.
Jones plays Amy Silva in the show, a police DCI who takes on the might of the British military to ensure the mysterious circumstances are investigated properly.
The BBC released this picture of Jones and Compston on set in what looks like a makeshift submarine yesterday, along with a few more details about Vigil's plot and stellar cast.
Jones' Doctor Foster co-star Adam James, Bodyguard's Anjli Mohindra and Game of Thrones' Rose Leslie, Stephen Dillane and Daniel Portman will all make appearances in Vigil.
BAFTA-nominated writer Tom Edge, who has previous credits for The Crown and Strike, is behind the script.
'Tom Edge has created a thrill of a story, set in a world I knew nothing about,' Jones said recently. 'The cast and crew World Productions have put together to tell this story is so exciting. Amy Silva is a brilliantly complex character, thrown into a highly charged situation where her authority is weakened.
'We watch as she navigates her own personal trauma and loss, all at a time when she's questioning her relationships and life choices. It feels fresh and relevant and I can't wait to start filming.'
There's no word yet on when Vigil will be released, but we can't wait to have Jones back on our screens.
