As Suranne Jones and Rose Leslie BBC One drama Vigil heads for a finale, the creative team behind the series reveal how they made the most watched new drama of the year.
The Suranne Jones submarine thriller concludes this weekend, but will we get answers to our biggest series questions?
BBC's smash hit Vigil starring Suranne Jones, Rose Leslie, Daniel Portman, and Shaun Evans heads for choppier waters in episode three. Here are the questions we need answered.
New submarine drama Vigil shines on the high seas thanks to great plot and fantastic ensemble cast.
The 42-year-old actor suffered whiplash filming stunts for new BBC Sunday night crime drama 'Vigil', set aboard a submarine.
The 'Doctor Foster' star shared her experiences of dementia with sufferer Paul Hoskins as they baked together for national Cupcake Day.
The show's star says there is so much more to her character than lesbian sex scenes.
After an explosive first series in 2015, popular BBC drama Doctor Foster written by Mike Bartlett will return to our screens very soon and we can’t wait. Actress Suranne Jones reprises her role as scorned GP Gemma Foster whose cheating husband Simon (played by Bertie Carvel) had an affair with much younger mistress Kate Parks (played by Jodie Comer).
Sally Lindsay, who played much-loved Rovers Return barmaid Shelley for five years, had a incredible 18 million people tune in to watch her TV wedding on Coronation Street. “When Suranne (Jones) and I were on Corrie, you have to remember it was getting 14 million people watching each episode. Someone came up to me the last time I was in Manchester and said, “Oh, are you hear filming Corrie then?” I just said, “Do you watch it?” And they replied, “I never miss and episode.” I thought, you bloody do.
Doctor Foster star Suranne Jones was one of the night’s big winners at the National Television Awards as she won Best Drama Performance, while the show collected the prize for Best New Drama. The former Coronation Street star won critical acclaim last year for her role as vengeful wife Gemma Foster, who discovered her husband was cheating on her with a younger woman. The show is set to return for a second series, with filming beginning in September, and Suranne has signed up as a producer this year.

It has been confirmed that hugely successful TV drama, Doctor Foster, will return for a second series, with Suranne Jones set to reprise her popular role of Dr. Gemma Foster. In case you missed it, or didn’t notice when it heavily featured on Gogglebox, the first series of the BBC One show saw Gemma discover that her husband was having an affair, eventually coming to terms with his infidelity. Speaking about the second series, Suranne explained: “After discussions with Drama Republic and the wonderful [writer and creator] Mike Bartlett I am thrilled to announce we will all be reunited to tell Gemma’s next chapter, and I can’t wait for the audience who invested in these characters to find out what explosive twists and turns Mike has in store.
