Preview – Shetland


The BBC drama centres around Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez and his Shetland based team as they attempt to solve crimes and murders amongst the islanders. The series stars Douglas Henshall as Perez, with Alison O’Donnell and Stephen Robertson co-starring.

Since convicted murderer – who incidentally still protests his innocence – Thomas Malone’s return, the Shetland team’s lives have been thrown into turmoil, with the murder of journalist Sally McColl forcing them into a whole new investigation which pits them against a public safety officer, a far-right extremist group and secret service officers. This week is the finale and everything comes to a head for Perez – both personally and professionally – culminating in a nail-biting climax.
