First look: The Salisbury Poisonings

The BBC has released the first trailer of its dramatisation of the 2018 Novichok poisonings that made global headlines.

The series will be broadcast next month and stars Rafe Spall, Anne-Marie Duff and MyAnna Buring.

It tells the story of how ordinary people and public services reacted to the Novichok crisis as Salisbury became the focus of an unprecedented national emergency when Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned by Russian operatives.

Police officer Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey (Spall) was contaminated at the Skripal’s home and required hospital treatment. Local woman, Dawn Sturgess (Buring), was also exposed to the nerve agent and subsequently died.
