Prior to the show’s broadcast, DS Bailey described the ‘terrifying and a very stressful time’ he experienced following the incident.  

Speaking on Good Morning Britain he said: ‘At first I put it down to exhaustion or a migraine because at the time we had no idea what we were dealing with and we couldn’t begin to comprehend that it could be something like a nerve agent.

‘It was terrifying and a very stressful time.’ 

Talking about the drama, which reportedly upset his parents, DS Bailey continued: ‘They weren’t happy, but that was because of how they found out about it and it got out in the press.

‘Their reaction was more to protect me and my family because they didn’t know it was happening.

‘I sat down with the writer and I understood the vision and that’s when we started to understand that it was about the human aspect of the story.

‘It was a huge story and the human aspect can sometimes get lost.

‘This (drama) is really about normal people going about their normal lives and getting caught up in a huge event.’
