Mathias is under pressure. His wife Meg has turned up in Aberystwyth and he's under investigation by the IPCC following the death of Mari Davies at the end of the last episode. When a bus driver is found shot dead on an isolated mountainside, the investigation provides a welcome escape.
DCI Tom Mathias comes to Aberystwyth having abandoned his life in London. He's a brilliant but troubled man. Despite his faults he is an excellent detective, who knows that the key to solving the crime 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, Y Gwyll is a series of stories that are original and local, yet timeless and universal.
