We are on an oil rig in dangerous waters and Martin Compston is doing his serious Line of Duty voice. I’m already tense.

There’s something inherently scary about anything that happens at sea and, just like submarine-set Vigil, The Rig – another Scottish coast thriller – feels immediately claustrophobic.

Directed by John Strickland ( Line of Duty, of course), the eerie Prime Video supernatural drama follows the crew on the fictional Kinloch Bravo oil rig in the North Sea.

Its group of workers are due to return to the mainland but everything takes a dark turn when all outside communications are suddenly lost.

Crew leader Magnus (Iain Glen) later announces the emergency is over, which of course means it’s all about to get
extremely hairy.
