Finished watching the 4th series of Shetland last night. It made me cry. What a powerful season this was. Have you watched any of this series? If not I highly recommend those of you who live in America get Britbox and start watching! Do the 7 day free trial and watch all 6 episodes in that week if nothing else. Really, its that good!
Stephen Walters played Thomas Malone, the man who was in prison for 23 years and released when his conviction was quashed. What an amazing actor! I was so drawn into his character and so invested in him immediately. I watched 3 episodes at a time because I just couldn’t pull myself away from his story. Thomas Malone is a very ‘unlovely’ character that breaks your heart. I’ve probably seen him in bit parts over the years. He is a DCI in the first season of Little Boy Blue which is on Britbox now also. I’m planning on watching that this week to see what he is like in a different character. Kate commented a few posts ago that with Acorn and Britbox I won’t get anything done for watching TV and I can see she is exactly right!
Series 5 is filming now! I think I’d have to say that Shetland is my favorite TV show. Looking forward to another season and reading the books. My library has them so I’m stopping in today and getting Black Raven, the first in the Shetland series. Ann Cleeves has a nice website. Check it out!
