BBC viewers finally got to see how Vigil ended on Sunday night as DCI Amy Silva (played by Suranne Jones) finally caught her killer. Over the past few weeks, DCI Silva has been onboard the nuclear submarine, Vigil where she has been trying to find out who killed Craig Burke (Martin Compston). Viewers watched as a number of murders took place on board and they feared whether DCI Silva would make it out alive. However, as the finale came to a close, Suranne’s character finally got her man, although, her victory resulted in the death of poor Mark Prentice (Adam James).

The actor who played Prentice in the hit BBC series teased fans earlier this week when he made an appearance on This Morning.

The star spoke with hosts Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond during Friday’s show.

“Do you think there is scope for a series two?” Dermot asked.

“She’s (Suranne) is going to die though, isn’t she?” Alison quizzed.

Dermot went on to point out that a lot of money was spent on the set, so it would make sense to have another series.

“(It) depends who survives,” Adam cheekily teased knowing his character had died.

“I hope that there could be,” he added.

Despite his character’s death, BBC bosses have not confirmed whether there will be another series.


On Sunday Matthew Doward (Lorne MacFadyen) was finally apprehended by DCI Silva.

DCI Silva finally worked out that Matthew was working with Russian spies in a bid to take down the British Navy.

Despite Matthew locking the detective in a tanker and filling it with water in the hope she would drown, she was saved at the last minute by Prentice.

When Matthew realised he had to move fast before he was found out, he discovered the police officer and his boss trying to alert the crew.

Risking his own life so DCI Silva could escape, poor Prentice ended up being killed by Matthew.

It was very touch and go as the detective tried to escape Matthew’s grip.

As he held a knife to her throat, viewers thought it would be the end for Suranne’s character.

However, after help from the crew, Matthew was finally arrested for his crimes.



The ending sparked a strong reaction from viewers, with many taking to social media to share their thoughts.

Some fans felt disappointed by the drama’s “happy ending”, while others were loving it.

Max penned: “Can’t help but think this has been severely disappointing.”

Luke wrote: “I can’t decide whether #Vigil’s Finale was really good or really bad.”

While Daniel said: “Waste of six hours of my life.” (sic)

Vigil is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
