BBC Two has commissioned new factual drama Salisbury, focusing on the impact of the 2018 Novichok poisonings on Salisbury and the community.

The two-part drama tells the story of how ordinary people reacted to a crisis on their doorstep, displaying extraordinary heroism as their city became the focus of an unprecedented national emergency.

The drama is written by Adam Patterson and Declan Lawn, and produced by Dancing Ledge Productions for BBC Two.

Writers Adam Patterson and Declan Lawn, said: “We feel extremely privileged to be telling this story. Extensive, meticulous research is at the heart of how we like to work and we’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of the people of Salisbury who have opened up to us over the past few months and continue to do so. This is an extraordinary story full of ordinary heroes, the tale of how a community responded to an inconceivable event.”

Casting details are to be announced.
