Lauren Lyle (Outlander) brought me into Vigil, produced for BBC and now available on Peacock in the US. Luckily all episodes are out and I didn’t have to wait like when it originally aired – it’s a very intense thriller! Suranne Jones (Gentleman Jack) is phenomenal in anything she does. Besides the murder mystery, Vigil is also a love story told in flashbacks between Jones’ Amy Silver and Rose Leslie’s Kirsten Longacre.

Surprise appearances by Paterson Joseph (Timeless) and Gary Lewis (also of Outlander – it takes place in Scotland, after all) rounded out a stellar cast and top notch production.
