What time is Shetland on TV?

The fourth episode of the detective drama is on 9pm Tuesday 6th March.


The third episode was on Wednesday (28th February) due to the FA Cup replay that aired on Tuesday. Missed it? You can watch episode 3 on BBC iPlayer now.

What can I expect from the next episode?

Tosh can’t move forward with her life as quickly as she thinks she should, long after the brutal sexual assault that left her traumatised and mistrustful of men.

Though her boss Jimmy Perez understands and gives her time to breathe and to adjust to something so enormous, she has problems with her dim-witted colleague Sandy and general male presumptions about women and their motives.

After a brief interlude in Norway, Jimmy and Tosh are back where they belong, on Shetland, though that nice young policeman who took a shine to Tosh lingers. But the investigation into the murder of a journalist, and the miscarriage of justice inquiry, become more knotty and much more dangerous.
