Very disappointing series - just did not work for me. Too self-conscious about Shetland location so lots of clunky dialogue to explain Shetland between characters who were supposed to be Shetlanders, formulaic plot with big holes and characters from a standard menu of cliches, wasted scenery opportunities in making everything grey-toned all the time, and too many Scottish mainland actors so there were almost no Shetland accents. Obviously trying to do a deep and meaningful Wallander, but ended up as Midsomer Murders (Shetland mix).The archaeological plot strand was ludicrous - lots of errors eg overnight c14 dating of human bone, and a dig would provide lots of excavation evidence about how and when a burial occurred which would have solved a lot of this "mystery" very quickly.

I found it okay, if a little bit ponderous, but agree with most of your criticisms. Whatever you think about Douglas Henshall, (I actually enjoy his overacting and find him watchable) a convincing Shetlander he ain't. As for the archaeology, well in the real world it usually takes about a week to get a DNA match but most TV detectives seem to be able to get one in about half an hour.

That's a trawler (the "Cassandra" shown as bought in 2008 during Ep2 when DH does an online search). Bressay ferry is much smaller - as in 3rd thumb on /vehicle_579536-Subaru-Forester-SG-2003.html - blue hull, white structure, http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/bressay/ferry/images/leirna-450.jpg - was seen a few times. The Northlink ferry to Aberdeen - mentioned a lot but hardly ever shown - http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2791/4167545658_60fcb80e94_z.jpg .
