Welcome to Brooding and Beautiful. This is the fanlisting for the popular Scottish crime drama Shetland.
First broadcast in March 2013, the show is based on a series of novels by Ann Cleeves. The show was brought to the screen by David Kane, who has remained a principal writer throughout the series. The series stars Douglas Henshall as Jimmy Pérez, a detective inspector working for the Shetland police, Alison O'Donnell as Detective Sergeant Alison "Tosh" Macintosh, and Steven Robertson as Detective Constable Sandy Wilson. Mark Bonnar, Lewis Howden, Erin Armstrong, Julie Graham, and Anne Kidd are also credited as principal members of the cast.
The story takes place largely on the eponymous Scottish archipelago, although much of the series' filming takes place on the Scottish mainland, with only some location filming actually taking place in Shetland.
This show has quickly become one of my absolute favorites! :)
