William Thomas shoots the role of Robert Owen in the upcoming third series of Hinterland for S4C.
From the windswept sand dunes of the coastline to the badlands of the hinterland, Aberystwyth is the perfect setting for this brand new drama series. A place that lives by its own rules: a natural crucible of colliding worlds where history and myth meet the modern and contemporary. Blood,soil and belonging. This is Hinterland.
Into this world steps DCI Tom Mathias. On the run from his past, a brilliant but troubled man. Having abandoned his life in London, he isolates himself on the outskirts of town – a town filled with secrets as dark and destructive as his own.
Mathias is partnered with DI Mared Rhys. Intelligent and complex, she is a mother wiser than her 33 years suggest. Together, enigmatic outsider Mathias and hometown girl Mared form an engaging relationship.
Mathias is at the heart of every story. He is a man we instinctively trust, a man who knows that the key to solving that ultimate anti-social crime, murder, lies not in where you look for truth, but how you look. From the windswept sand dunes of the coastline to the badlands of the hinterland, this is a detective drama with pace, poetry and scale. A series of four two-hour films with stories that are original and local, yet timeless and universal.Overview
