Charleygirl5 Sat 16-Oct-21 09:49:30

I am looking forward to it.

Witzend Sat 16-Oct-21 09:52:20

Me too!

Greyduster Sat 16-Oct-21 09:52:55

Me too! Something to look forward to on tv!

Kim19 Sat 16-Oct-21 09:55:33

Yes, I'm certainly looking forward to that. Love it.

Calendargirl Sat 16-Oct-21 09:55:37

Will it be a ‘proper’ story from the books or a made up one?

Also ‘The Long Call’ starts soon. Wasn’t impressed with the book or characters when I read it unfortunately.

Oh brilliant! He is gorgeous isn’t he! ?

Hallelujah! Can hardly wait.

Excellent. Season 6. I've watched them all, some twice over.
Love the Jimmy Perez character. Dougie Henshall plays him so well.

20th October at 9pm on BBC One ?

Jane43 Sat 16-Oct-21 12:30:40

I’m looking forward to it too.

BlueBelle Sat 16-Oct-21 12:37:58

Oh I didn’t realise that’s good I like that series

sodapop Sat 16-Oct-21 13:26:55

I'm looking forward to it as well, love Jimmy Perez.
I think we agreed about The Long Call on a previous book thread Calendargirl

Calendargirl Sat 16-Oct-21 14:11:33

Thanks sodapop, I thought I was repeating myself!

Although I like Dougie Henshall, I do wish he looked a bit more like how Jimmy was described in the books. (Realise this has been mentioned before also)


Boz Sat 16-Oct-21 15:08:42

Another good (potentially) series is coming soon.
Mick Herron's book Slow Horses with Gary Oldman; Spy thriller with a dash of humour.

Kalu Sat 16-Oct-21 15:16:18

As one who hasn’t read the books, I am more than happy with Dougie Henshall playing Jimmy Perez. ?

Streaky Wed 10-Aug-22 11:15:32

The good news…season 7 starts tonight.
The really bad news…final series for Douglas Henshall ???
One of my favourite series and actors. I hope they give him a happy ending and not kill him off, I don’t think I could bear that!

TillyTrotter Wed 10-Aug-22 11:19:25

A decent drama to watch - can’t wait . I like Dougie H too.

PollyDolly Wed 10-Aug-22 11:20:27

Yes, apparently it's the last series for Perez.

PollyDolly Wed 10-Aug-22 11:21:32

Sorry Streaky, didn't noticed that you had already said it.

muse Wed 10-Aug-22 12:47:18

One of the best detective / mystery programmes ever. All main characters are excellent but greatest is Dougie. Hope he gets loads more work.

AreWeThereYet Wed 10-Aug-22 12:57:39

Shetland is one of my favourite series. I love the characters, the casting, the scenery, the music. I don't care that the accents aren't all authentic to the region they all have beautiful accents. Some of the plots are a bit dark though.

I probably won't watch it once Dougie Henshall leaves - to be honest I think they should just stop making it and leave it as one of the greats rather than let it dwindle into a farce as so many series do.

Clawdy Tue 16-Aug-22 07:44:03

Enjoyed it, glad all the regular characters are back.

Calendargirl Thu 18-Aug-22 16:30:03

Not finding the new series very riveting so far.

silverlining48 Thu 18-Aug-22 17:03:56

I like it too, but need subtitles.
A friend visits Shetland frequently and loves it there. There are no trees though, but they decorate phone boxes and it’s wonderful fir twitchers.
