4 March 2018. Emergency services descend on Salisbury's city centre where they find Sergei and Yulia Skripal unconscious on a park bench.
They are taken to hospital, where doctors struggle to diagnose the source of their illness. DS Nick Bailey (Rafe Spall) decides to investigate the Skripals' home, but soon after returning to work he begins to feel ill.
Tracy Daszkiewicz (Anne-Marie Duff), Director of Public Health for Wiltshire Council, is called into an emergency meeting, where it's revealed that it was an attempted assassination with an unidentified poison. Tracy realises the potential danger and locks down the main sites but, when CCTV footage shows the Skripals have been all over town, she fears the entire city centre could have been infected with an unidentified toxin.
Meanwhile, Dawn Sturgess (MyAnna Buring) is furious at herself for missing a planned trip to the playground with her daughter. As her boyfriend, Charlie Rowley (Johnny Harris), comforts her, she vows to turn things around.
As Tracy struggles to deal with the responsibility of having the safety of thousands in her hands, Nick's condition worsens.
The Salisbury Poisonings is released on DVD and Blu-ray 13th July 2020 from Spirit Entertainment.
