Those mourning the passing of Hinterland needn’t grieve for too long. An article on the Wales Online website has handily put all that they know into one helpful article, detailing what may or may not happen in series two, set for late 2014 or early 2015. Read on for more.
In terms of what we can expect, the article says this:
S4C drama commissioner, Gwawr Martha Lloyd said: “The audience can look forward to more nail-biting, edge-of-seat suspense, more intrigue in that stunning Ceredigion setting, and more clues about the troubled mind of DCI Mathias, the man around whom this gripping series is based.”
And then we get around to the cast.
In particular there is likely to be a lot more from Detective Constable Lloyd Elis (Alex Harries), the local socially awkward but brilliant farmer’s son and Detective Sergeant Siân Owens (Hannah Daniel), the impulsive, determined and ruthless blonde who does whatever it takes to get the job done.
Viewers will also be keen to see Chief Superintendent Brian Prosser (Aneirin Hughes) back after many commented on social media that he was their prime suspect in every episode of the first series!
If you read my review the one thing I wasn’t keen on was the anonymity of Prosser and his amusing knack of popping up from time to time and… well, just looks menacing.
So what else is new?
Series two will again be shot as a five-part series in Welsh and English and broadcast in late 2014 or early 2015 and will reunite lead actor Richard Harrington with the production team comprising co-creators Ed Talfan and Ed Thomas, and producer Gethin Scourfield.
So nothing too much aside from confirming the details, but we’re also likely to find out more of Mathias’s back story, his relationship with his family, as well as back stories to his team.
And then of course there will be the scenery. There will be scenery, that’s for sure.
