THE PRODUCER of the Shetland crime drama has thanked the local community for its support during the show’s filming over the last few weeks.

The shoot featuring lead actor Douglas Henshall as DI Jimmy Perez has now ended, with cast and crew due to return again in June.

Producer Louise Say said: “Once again, the genuine support of the Shetland community has meant the world to us so a huge thank you to everyone.

“I am delighted to say our three week location shoot has gone terrifically well – despite the storms and blizzards of the first week! We look forward to seeing you again in the summer.”

Henshall, meanwhile, said on Twitter: “It’s been wonderful to be in Shetland for the last three weeks. It’s flown by.

“Thanks to the good people here for your kindness. We could never do it without you. See you in June.”

Filming for series six of the popular crime drama will continue at various locations at Inverclyde for around a week at the end of April into May.
