Moonwalking and murder

Between moonwalking ponies and murderous primetime drama, Shetland has had a very high media profile of late. Whilst the TV two-parter ‘Shetland’ has had a mixed reception locally and critically, Socks the prancing pony in the 3 Mobile advert has received almost universal praise.

What’s not to like about a Socks’ computer enhanced performance? And although I rarely watch TV (I haven’t owned one for years), I made an effort to watch ‘Shetland’ with my family and we all quite enjoyed it (despite the fact I had already seen the first part - I was lucky enough to have been invited to the premiere in Mareel)
