The BAFTA and RTS Scotland winning series returns with more unparalleled and intimate access to Police Scotland’s Major Investigations Team and their dogmatic pursuit of justice. Filmed over the course of 2 years by award winning filmmaker Matt Pinder, this new two-part series goes behind the scenes on some of the most complex and shocking murder investigations in Scotland and shines a light on what it’s like to be a homicide detective.

Back for a second series is Murder Case (BBC Scotland, Tuesday-Wednesday, 10pm, or BBC2, Wednesday-Thursday, 9pm, above). Forgive the long listing of channels and times; this is what happens when a BBC Scotland series becomes a network hit – everyone wants a piece of the award-winning action. See Guilt, Shetland, etc... It can be difficult to find a place of your own in the crowded market for documentaries, far less those specialising in true crime. That word spread so far and fast about series one of Murder Case says a lot about its quality and originality.
