With the second series of Hinterland (Y Gwyll) coming to its climatic conclusion recently shown, many are now looking forward to the third series of the English/Welsh detective drama.

The drama’s five episodes have had viewers glued to their TV screens as the series came to BBC Four after a very successful run on S4C Wales last year.

Aberystwyth’s panoramic vistas hide a multitude of sins and sinners. It is DCI Tom Mathias’ (Richard Harrington) job to investigate and hunt down the perpetrators of crimes that jeopardise the safety and security of the local community.

Throughout Series Two Mathias came face to face with killers, stalkers and their victims, who drew him into a world, where death, drug dealing and recrimination threatened the stability of the quiet region. Whilst dealing with this dark side, Mathias had to confront his own demons.

Hinterland Series 2

When Hinterland first came to our TV screens I watched it on S4C Wales and loved it, then the first series was shown on the BBC, the second series still has all the feel that the first series had, the mystery, intrigued and the brilliant acting from the cast.

Let’s not also forget the production and cinematography in Hinterland, everything that makes the first series a joy to watch is all here in the second.

Richard Harrington (Poldark) and Mali Harries once again as the series’ detectives, and is filmed twice (in both Welsh and English) to ensure that it accommodates to its extensive collection of Nordic Noir fans. Atmospheric and disturbing, this is a detective drama of poetry and scale, a story of blood, soil and belonging. This is Hinterland.

Hinterland series two is certainly a good continuation of the characters and has you impatiently wanting to see the next episode straight after, forget about watching an episode a week, binge watch the second series and take it all in.
