New trailer for Iona starring Ruth Negga, Ben Gallagher and Douglas Henshall

16 February 2016 10:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its UK release month, a new trailer has arrived online for writer-director Scott Graham’s upcoming drama Iona, which stars Ruth Negga, Ben Gallagher and Douglas Henshall. Take a look below after the official synopsis…

A young woman and her teenage son flee Glasgow, seeking refuge from a violent crime. They travel overnight to her birthplace, the isle of Iona, after which she is named and attempt to live among the religious community she left behind. Iona’s return exposes her tormented son Bull to a way of life she rejected when she left the island as a teenager. As Bull seeks forgiveness for what he’s done and the fragile family she left behind try to cope with her return, Iona comes to terms with her loss of faith.

Iona is set for release on March 25th.

Friday’s best TV: Shetland; Music Moguls: Masters of Pop; A World Unseen

21 January 2016 10:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Ciarán Hinds does a superb job of brooding by the chilly shore, Tony Visconti demonstrates how David Bowie’s Heroes was produced, and a look behind the scenes at the making of The Revenant. Plus: more romantic dithering in The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Second in the six-part detective series set among the chilly Scottish isles. Now Perez (Douglas Henshall) has a body, the question remains: what happened to Robbie Morton and why are any attempts to discover the truth being blocked from on high? Meanwhile, Maguire (Ciarán Hinds) broods by the shore, fingering his BlackBerry as the team work out why he is such an enigmatic and secretive curmudgeon. This could be an hour of Hinds putting things in drawers and looking conflicted and it would win. He is superb. Julia Raeside

Shetland review – wildness, beauty and a damn good yarn

15 January 2016 11:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As Jimmy Perez, Douglas Henshall rivals Wallander, Sarah Lund and Saga Norén in this gripping Celtic noir

Quiz question. If you were to swim due west from the top of Shetland, where would you make landfall? Maine? Nope. Canada? Not even. Greenland; that’s how far north Shetland is.

And if you swam east? Well, Scandinavia: the coast of Norway, round about Bergen. Which is way further north than Borgen, The Bridge, The Killing, all that. Shetland totally has latitude attitude, every right to have its own brooding dark cop drama – Celtic noir, which is what you might call Shetland (BBC2). Wallander? Sarah Lund? Saga Norén? Scandi shandy drinking southern… softies.

Friday’s best TV: Shetland; Mr Selfridge; First Dates; Music Moguls: Masters of Pop

Di Perez returns to investigate a disappearance; there’s a conflict between Gordon and Harry; and singletons try to beat intolerable lonliness. Plus: the seamy side of music industry gangsters

Douglas Henshall turns up the collar on his pea coat and returns to the chilly Scottish isle for another six-part stint as Di Jimmy Perez. The series-long mystery centres on the disappearance of a young man on the Aberdeen to Lerwick ferry. It’s a kind of The Lady Vanishes with Scottish accents and a druggy subplot. Best of all, Ciarán Hinds from Game of Thrones joins the cast as the irascible Michael. He’s an actor who runs on pure internal combustion and is impossible to ignore whenever he’s on screen. Julia Raeside
