TV weekly must watch

We’ve rounded up three great shows you should keep an eye out for this week.

Start with a factual drama that tells the story of how ordinary people and public services reacted to a crisis on their doorstep, displaying extraordinary heroism as their city became the focus of an unprecedented national emergency. Then follow the investigations of a strange death onboard a submarine and the disappearance of a fishing trawler. Or watch the heroic adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived.

The still-raw events of the Novichok chemical agent attacks are dramatised in The Salisbury Poisonings, which deals with the trauma experienced by the victims but is also a story of people coming together in remarkable ways, finding strength in family and community. This critically acclaimed four-part factual drama examines what happened not just to the victims, but also the ordinary residents of Salisbury. Their lives were changed forever, yet they showed quiet heroism to overcome the horror of the poisonings. See it first, exclusively on BritBox from March 3.

When a crew member is found dead on board the Trident nuclear submarine HMS Vigil, the Scottish Police are called on to investigate. The catch? The UK’s nuclear deterrent must remain effective, so the submarine stays on patrol and Detective Chief Inspector Amy Silva must go aboard to investigate. Although the death has been written off as an accidental overdose, Amy suspects foul play. But the crew close ranks in the face of Amy’s questioning, and a new threat overshadows her inquiry. Catch Vigil from March 1 on Showmax.

Set over a thousand years ago in the early 11th century, Vikings: Valhalla chronicles the heroic adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived — the legendary explorer Leif Eriksson, his fiery and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter, and the ambitious Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson. As tensions between the Vikings and the English royals reach a bloody breaking point and as the Vikings themselves clash over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs, these three Vikings begin an epic journey that will take them across oceans and through battlefields, from Kattegat to England and beyond, as they fight for survival and glory. Now showing on Netflix.
