Want to see all the episodes.
I watched the first episode and loved it but now can’t watch the rest of them! What do I need to do to see the rest? Doesn’t give me any info on how to watch the next three episodes, I pay enough for amazon every year shouldn’t have to shell out more money for “extras”.

WARNING: Not the full Season 1
Verified purchase
This is a pretty interesting series, especially in light of the more recent poisoning of Sergei Novalny with the same Russian-developed nerve agent. However, Amazon Prime Video clearly states that Season 1 consists of four episodes and can be rented for $9.99. We rented it and only 3 of the 4 episodes would stream. The 4th episode will not load unless we sign up for a free 7-day trial of AMC. Even this may not be true. Wikipedia and IMDB list only 3 episodes in the first (and so far only) season of The Salisbury Poisonings. AMC's website indicates the fourth episode, but qualifies this with the word "UPGRADE," whatever that means. In any case, if you rent this series through Amazon Prime, be forewarned you will only receive access to 3 of the 4 episodes (despite Amazon's claim) and you will be left hanging with respect to the second and apparently even more problematic wave of poisonings that occurred in the Salisbury area. I think we'll asked Amazon to refund our rental charge here.

I did not dislike anything about the product, but according whith the Order Confirmation # D01-702517-6416255 I paid for The Salisbury Poisonings, Season 1. Apparently the payment was only for the first episode.
I don't have any problem to pay the following episodes, and I refuse to subscribe to AMC o Brit Box in order to watch TV series.

Interesting rehash

This story was well covered in major newspapers.The drama angle detracts from the fact that certain foreign governments act in aggressive and horrible ways to eliminate their enemies.

Heartbreaking story of the local people who dealt with the Skripal poisonings
Brilliantly executed dramatization of the events surrounding the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in the city of Salisbury, England. We see how the collateral damage was done by the poisoning, how a police officer came close to death because he was exposed to Novichok, two other people sickened, and one of them died. We see how this impacted the families and the community. And the heroism of the health official and others who shut down the town thereby preventing more deaths.
