Shetland, Series 4

Shetland, Series 4 (BBC, 2018) [Packaged in Australia as Series 3] A certain amount of contrivance is necessary to sustain this double murder mystery over six one-hour episodes, yet the character motivations remain more or less believable. A beautifully filmed if dour and downbeat study of community prejudice levelled against an innocent man.    

Shetland, Series 1-2

Shetland, Series 1-2 by David Kane (BBC, 2013-2014) Four 2-hour murder mysteries set on the grim and desolate Shetland Islands. The investigations have a few holes but are largely without contrivance, while the running time and location afford plenty of space for the characters to breathe. Love the Scottish accents!
