Shetland Series 7 began last night on BBC One, kicking off Douglas Henshall’s final season in the lead role.
Despite being an “amazing” episode, all fans of the show had the same complaint on Twitter.
Shetland Series 7 begins
Last night Shetland returned to our screens for its seventh season.
Season seven will, of course, be Douglas Henshall’s last in the title role of DI Jimmy Perez.
On last night’s episode, a new family moved to Shetland.
In addition, DI Jimmy Perez was investigating the disappearance of a young man, a member of the new family.
Has what the family was running from returned to haunt them in their new home?
Shetland on BBC iPlayer?
Although many viewers praised the first episode of the new season, they all had the same complaint.
Many viewers have complained on Twitter that Series 7 isn’t appearing on BBC iPlayer all at once!
“Seriously we have to wait a week for the next episode and can’t get on iPlayer? I’m not sure I want to wait – How frustrating!” said one viewer.
“Great first episode but please can we put it on iPlayer so I can check it out,” tweeted another Douglas.
“iPlayer checked. Only episode 1 for now [crying emoji]. I love all the characters and the writing style is exceptional. Wonderful acting too,” wrote a third.
“Are we getting the whole lot on iPlayer?” asked another.
However, viewers loved the first episode, as one said: “This episode was amazing! so good to have #Shetlands the back!”
Another wrote: “Loved the start of the new series from #Shetlands. Fantastic first episode.”
Shetland Series 7 will be Douglas Henshall’s last
It was announced last month that series 7 of Shetland Douglas would be his last in the role of Jimmy Perez.
But just because it’s the final season of Douglas doesn’t mean it’s the final season of the show.
Shetland will return in 2023 for their eighth season with a new leadership.
“It has been one of the privileges of my career to play Jimmy Perez for almost 10 years and to work with so many wonderful people both in front of and behind the camera and also to spend so much time in Shetland,” said Douglas.
“The islands were so much a part of our show and of Perez himself. I will miss him and the place. I wish everyone involved the best of luck for what happens next.”
