Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
Tv Season Info
Shetland stands out from the crowd because it is the polar opposite of a shouty police drama. Henshall sets the tone.
Shetland retains the ability to delight and shock in equal measure, and while the plots might possess a certain predictability,the series never stales, and nor does Douglas Henshall in the part he was arguably born to play.
One of its chief pleasures cannot be overstated: it looks stunning. Even the crime scenes are picturesque. It is probably not designed to make you think about moving to Shetland, but it still has that effect.
