Douglas Henshall (The Secret of Crickley Hall) returns to BBC One next month in a new murder mystery drama set in the Scottish Highlands. The two-part Shetland premiers on Sunday 10 March at 9pm.

Henshall plays an island native – Jimmy Perez – who returns to Shetland after years working as a detective on the mainland. He has barely had time to tuck into his haggis before a young archaeologist stumbles across some recently interred human remains. It’s not long before the body count is doubled and Perez is tasked with solving the baffling double murder mystery. Claire Rafferty, Jim Strugeon and Gemma Chan join Henshall in the cast for the drama which was produced by ITV Studios for BBC Scotland.
