I'm dying to watch it and keep seeing 'coming soon' adverts

no sure Dougie Henshall will fit my Jimmy Perez image but willing to give him a chance

Yipppppeeeee - what a fab Mother's Day present smile. Have you read the books MrsPresley?

No redlac I didnt know there was books until I found that link last night.

Looks like I'm going be checking Amazon later. Have you read the? Are they stand alone or do you have to start from the first one?

I'm waiting for this series as well I'm rather fond of Dougie!grin

I would start at the beginning - Raven Black is the first one and is ace. There is a story thread that goes through the five books which I don't think is reflected in the TV series cos this programme is based on the third book

Oh great. I didn't realise it was based on the Ann Cleeves books. I loved the books so am looking forward to this.

Have read all the books and can't see Dougie H as Jimmy,though I like him as an actor. Jimmy is described as dark and Spanish-looking.The name Perez is a clue! What were casting thinking?

Really looking forward to it, love the books.

The books are brilliant,I love the character of Jimmy Perez. But I agree - my mental image is not much like the actor chosen to play him, - am still looking forward to it though.

I always imagine Misha Collins who plays Cas in Supernatural when thinking of Jimmy smile

I'm hoping the Dougie can get across the stillness of Jimmy and I won't think about his lack of Spanish looks too much

Ooh yeah, looking forwards to this!

i will be watching this but I want to know why there are so few Shetland accents on the trailer???

Starts tonightsmile

Selks Sun 10-Mar-13 22:00:27

Not bad, pretty gripping, but i don't know why they have to make it quite so dark and gloomy looking! hmm

redlac Sun 10-Mar-13 22:02:22

Cos they want it to be like The Killing smile

it's okay - will watch again tomorrow but the book is millions better (as they always are)

Bugger, have missed this! I watched the first two episodes, but had no idea that the next series was on this month!! It's on iPlayer, I take it?
