The set which was created for the shooting of the series called Vigil represents the fictional nuclear submarine in which the show is set in. Onboard, the submarine is another Royal Navy Nuclear Submarine. Also, the peace camp that we see in the series is actually inspired by a real place. The real inspiration for the peace camp came from the Faslane peace camp, which is located next to the Faslane Naval base in Scotland. This is the place of origin of the Trident Nuclear Program.

The show also shows Dunloch Naval Base, which is not set at an original Naval Base and is actually shot on a set. The inspiration for this came from the Naval Base Clyde, which is actually located in Argyll & Bute. It is the place where you can find UK’s real-life Trident submarines and workforce.
