The BBC announced today that the BBC One murder-mystery drama Shetland will return for two more series with Douglas Henshall reprising his role as DI Jimmy Perez.
 

Adapted from Ann Cleeves’ novels, Shetland debuted on BBC One in 2013 and has gone from strength to strength over the last five series. The series has evolved to original six-part character driven narratives, set against the striking elemental landscapes of Shetland, one of the most remote corners of the British Isles. 

Series six and seven will film in 2020 and 2021 in locations on The Shetland Isles and around Scotland, and will again feature six hour-long episodes each. Both series will be written and created by David Kane (Stonemouth, The Field Of Blood) who originated the first series of Shetland and has written on every series since. Paul Logue (Vera, Death In Paradise) will also write on both series and the producer is Louise Say (Les Miserables, Dracula).

BBC One is to screen a new daytime series, The Bidding Rom, from the makers of The Repair Shop.

Set in an emporium deep in the Yorkshire countryside, a group of expert dealers will attempt to outbid each other to buy extraordinary items brought in by the public.

Nigel Havers welcomes people with an item they would like to sell, introducing them to a valuation expert who gives them the specialist information they need to drive a hard bargain. Tooled up with this information, Nigel guides the sellers through to the bidding room, where the five eager dealers square up to spend their money.

The competition will be fierce and the sellers will need to haggle get the best possible price for their item before finally shaking hands and doing a deal.

Nigel Havers said: “Everyone has something at home they’d love to sell if they knew where to go. Now, the secret’s out - The Bidding Room is the place to come and I’ll be there to help them get the best price.”
