The BBC dramatisation is based on the true story of the 2018 Novichok poisonings in Salisbury.

Ex Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were targeted in a nerve agent attack that saw them hospitalised.

Both were left in a critical condition, but managed to survive the poisoning.

A local woman Dawn Sturgess, tragically died after becoming contaminated through a perfume bottle and the policeman trying to solve the case, DS Nick Bailey, became critically ill too.

The British government blamed Russia for the poisonings.

The official synopsis reads: “The drama tells the remarkable 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.”

It adds: "The Salisbury Poisonings is not always an easy watch.

"It deals with real trauma, experienced by real people, not very long ago. So why show it now?

"Because it is a story of people coming together in remarkable ways, finding strength in family and community.

"It’s a story that reflects the internal reality of an emergency public health response, with all of its critical decisions.

"But perhaps most of all, because it reflects a kind of heroism that we have all come to recognise recently. "

The third episode of the three-part series will air on BBC One at 9pm on June 16.
