Sunday 25th March 2018
Acclaimed BBC One drama, Shetland sees the return of Douglas Henshall, Alison O'Donnell, Steven Robertson, Mark Bonnar and Julie Graham alongside new faces in the fourth series of the Scottish crime drama based on the novels by Ann Cleeves.
Starring Douglas Henshall in the lead role of DI Jimmy Perez and adapted from Ann Cleeves celebrated novels, new cast who have joined Shetland for this series include Neve McIntosh (The Replacement, Doctor Who), Sean McGinley (The Fall, Gangs of New York), Stephen Walters (The Accused), Gerard Miller (Bladerunner, River City), Allison McKenzie (Line of Duty, River City) and Michael Moreland (Filth, Scot Squad).
This new series is an original story which sees Perez deal with murders from the past and present with unsettling similarities. When Shetlander, Thomas Malone (played by Stephen Walters) has his murder conviction overturned after 23 years behind bars, DI Perez has to reopen the investigation into the 1994 death of local teenager, Lizzie Kilmuir.
As suspicion surrounds Malone, a local journalist is found murdered in similar circumstances and he finds himself firmly in the frame again. Has Malone fooled the system in to releasing him only to murder again? Or was he a victim of a miscarriage of justice? As pressure mounts on Perez, he must look beyond the gossip and prejudice to get to the truth.
