About Shetland

Douglas Henshall plays Jimmy Perez in the compelling television crime drama series set in the Scottish Shetland Isles.


Adapted from Ann Cleeves' series of best-selling crime novels and set against the stunning Scottish backdrop of the Shetland Isles, the acclaimed TV crime drama series Shetland sees recently widowed detective Jimmy Perez (Douglas Henshall) as a native Shetlander who has returned home after a long spell away.

With a fantastic cast, Shetland also stars Alison O'Donnell as Detective Constable Alison 'Tosh' McIntosh, Steven Robertson as Police Constable Sandy Wilson, Stewart Porter as Sgt Billy McBride, Erin Armstrong as Cassie Perez and Mark Bonnar as Duncan Hunter.

Fighting crime in the UK's most remote police drama, Jimmy Perez possesses a bone dry sense of humour and an idealistic desire to protect his beloved island home from inevitable change.
