Vigil star responds to "ludicrous" fan question about eggs
Tinned food? Think again.
Viewers were utterly shocked when Martin Compston's character, Chief Petty Officer Craig Burke, was found dead within the first few minutes of the opening episode.
What starts out as quite an obvious cause of death quickly turns into a murder investigation in which Silva gets very little support from the vessel's captain and senior officers.
But viewers just couldn't believe it. One wrote on Twitter: "I am watching #Vigil purely for Martin Compston and he dies within the first 8 minutes, I haven't been this upset since the Line of Duty finale."
Another viewer thinks we're all being trolled: "Waited for Martin Compston in #Vigil since the Line of Duty finale fiasco and 8 minutes in and they've killed him off. The writer is absolutely laughing his head off at us isn't he."
Jokers poke fun at 'most spacious sub in the world' on BBC's Vigil
The BBC's Vigil airs on Sundays and follows a murder investigation onboard a submarine but viewers took to social media to poke fun at the seemingly unending amount of space.The military community have been vocal about what they feel are glaring inaccuracies in the show's portrayal of life onboard a Royal Navy submarine with everything from incorrect uniforms to the way the crew behaves.
A third tweeted: "SORRY HAVE THEY KILLED OFF STEVE ARNOTT IN THE FIRST EPISODE #Vigil."
They killed ole Steve Arnott off in the first 10 minutes?! This is worse than the H reveal— SharonM20 (@m2020_sharon)
Did they really kill of— Sophie Marie Ross❤️ (@Sophieross1998) in the first 10 minutes after a big social media focus on him?
— Katie Mulgrew (@katiemulgreww) was good but I can’t believe they done dirty like that, he’s the reason I wanted to watch it ????
What you mean, I’m not missing any lines in the script ? That’s it ?

When Martin Compston was killed of at the start comforted myself thinking there would be flashbacks or other device. I was right. Video recording at the end. Hooked already.
Vigil's Paterson Joseph on Amy and Kirsten's "beautiful" relationship
"They're going bananas for Silvacre."Vigil viewers have seen the slow burn of romance between Detective Chief Inspector Amy Silva (Gentleman Jack's Suranne Jones) and Detective Sergeant Kirsten Longacre (Game of Thrones' Rose Leslie) play out through a series of flashbacks – from Amy's initial surprise and resistance to the relationship, to its blossoming and hints at why it ended before she arrived on submarine HMS Vigil.— Maureen StewartJones (@supergran22)
How brilliant is— Claire Louise (@clairelt83) so disappointed character was killed 5 mins into the programme ???? Can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow night!
'Vigil' episode 6 recap, what happened and our theories
'Vigil' episode 6 saw DCI Amy Silva and the rest of the crew facing a race for survival. Contains spoilers!The six-part series was a ratings smash for BBC1 and rumours of a second series already swirling, but what would a sequel to this rather self-contained (no pun intended) drama look like? Here's how last night's tense finale went down...
Jesus Mary Joseph and the wee donkey they killed off Martin Compson in the first 3 minutes!— Not a normal vicar ???? ???????????????????????????? #FBNHS (@Revdavidgray)
While there are many jokes on social media about Line of Duty's H getting in there and finishing the job off by killing Compston's character, it does seem like there are going to be many twists and turns before the mystery is solved.
The opening episode of the six-part thriller didn't stop moving the whole way through and there was not a minute to ponder who did it – mainly because by the end of the hour, it looks like any of the crew could have.
Vigil continues tomorrow (August 30) on BBC One at 9pm.
