Vigil boss breaks silence on BBC drama's future beyond season 2 as fans go wild for 'perfect' finale | The Sun

THE boss of Vigil has broken his silence on the future of the BBC One drama beyond series two.

Suranne Jones has returned to her role as detective chief inspector Amy Silva leaving fans delighted.

The first instalment saw the copper and Rose Leslie's character DI Kirsten Longacre investigate a fishing trawler and nuclear submarine death.

Series two, however, sees both women called up once again but this time for a new case.

Staying very much above water, they are tasked with investigating a drone attack on the RAF.

Seven soldiers were left dead after a weapon drone exercise at the Scottish military base in Dundair went terribly wrong when an unknown party took control of the object.

While viewers enjoy the new episodes, albeit with a mixed response, Vigil's boss Tom Edge has lifted the lid on a possible third series.

Speaking to Hello! Magazine, he's said he is very much open to penning another instalment.

He said: "I think we never take anything for granted in terms of actors because our actors are incredible and have so many jobs and it's a useful thought to think we have to have a shot at earning their time and their pick. That is a reasonably high bar.

"If we think about doing that, it has to feel like there's something urgent to be said, both on a character level and in terms of the domain that we may enter to unpack those questions.

Fans praised the finale, which got to the bottom of the MPAS drone software.

Taking to social media, one viewer said: "She's everything. Suranne Jones killed it as DCI Amy Silva in #VIGIL season 2."

A second wrote: "Thanks #Vigil! Cracking series two! When's the next one, BBC?!"

"Just finished series 2! Got to say I loved it, wish we had seen the baby at the end though. Well done all," commented a third.
