Shetland star hints at dramatic twist in tonight’s episode 

Shetland star Douglas Henshall has teased fans about a potentially explosive twist to tonight (Wednesday’s) episode.

The crime drama, which stars Henshall as DI Jimmy Perez, returned to our screens a fortnight ago after a two year hiatus.

With Perez facing personal tragedy along with a tricky murder to solve, series six got off to a dramatic start.

And Henshall has hinted tonight’s episode  is not one to be missed.

He said on Twitter: “Things are going to get turned up a notch or two in #Shetland tonight.”

Filming for the series, which is based on characters from the Ann Cleeves Shetland series, took place at locations across the isles earlier this year.  

Further filming for series seven only ended in Shetland last month.

Episode three of series six is due to air tonight  at 9pm on BBC One

      There is always someone who has to spoil something and you are it I am afraid. My mother had a wonderful motto, if you cannot something nice, don’t say it. You are just drawing attention to yourself. Everyone but you seems to enjoy it, go somewhere else if it doesn’t appeal to you, don’t spoil it for everyone else. GOT IT

    Am I right in thinking that Stephen Robertson slept in his car all night at the beach in last week’s episode? If so, why?

      I had a feeling no-one would know the answer. Sandy is getting more and more erratic. On Wednesday he charged into the police station shouting ‘People want answers!’ Have you ever heard anyone utter that phrase? What did he mean?
