The trailer for the show will air on BBC One at 9.15pm tonight (Sunday, May 31) and is now live on YouTube. 

The three-part drama focuses on the impact the 2018 Novichok poisonings had on the local community.

The Salisbury Poisonings is written by Adam Patterson and Declan Lawn and produced by Dancing Ledge Productions.

It 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.

The drama focuses on Tracy Daszkiewicz, the director of Public Health for Wiltshire, played by Anne-Marie Duff in the drama. 

Declan said: "Adam and I turned up in Salisbury not really knowing what story we should tell, or even if we should tell a story. Our first light bulb moment, when we thought there was something different and incredible to say, was when we met Tracy Daszkiewicz, the director of Public Health for Wiltshire and her colleague, Alistair Cunningham, and they told us about the response effort.

"Tracy, for us, became the definition of an ordinary hero. Someone who was pulled from her relatively normal job into this international crisis.

Adam added: "She would typically deal with food poisoning cases, hospital infections, outbreaks of nits, things like that. Suddenly she's got the world's media on her doorstep but has to keep a steady head and essentially, counter with the official investigation, she has to protect the local community.

"It's an amazing story of one person who is just like anyone else, who goes above and beyond, to the detriment of herself and her family, to try and protect the people around her."

All episodes of the drama will be available as a boxset on BBC iPlayer after the first episode has aired.
