DCI Tom Mathias is back roaming the Hinterland for a second series. Aberystwyth. A place of searing beauty. A natural crucible of colliding worlds where history, myth and tradition come face-to-face with the modern and the contemporary. But it's panoramic vistas hide a multitude of sins... Atmospheric and disturbing, this is a detective drama of poetry and scale, a story of blood, soil and belonging. The first series of Hinterland reached its bloody climax with DCI Tom Mathias' future hanging in the balance. Now, weeks later, our troubled detective is forced to return to the front line after an arson attack on an isolated farmhouse leaves a mother and child fighting for their lives. Drawn into a community of failing farms and long-standing feuds, Mathias and his partner DI Mared Rhys will be pushed to the brink as they try to solve this disturbing case.
