Douglas Henshall Begins Filming Shetland Series 4

Filming has begun on the six-part fourth series of Shetland, based on the novels by Ann Cleeves, which stars Douglas Henshall as DI Jimmy Perez.

In series four, Perez deals with murders from the past and present with unsettling similarities. When Thomas Malone (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.

Returning cast members Alison O’Donnell, Steven Robertson, Mark Bonnar and Julie Graham are joined by Neve McIntosh (The Replacement), Sean McGinley (The Fall), Gerard Miller (River City), and Allison McKenzie (Line of Duty).

Shetland will be filmed on location in Shetland, Glasgow and Norway.
