    The Killing Times Podcast - Episode 12, Sian Reese-Williams and Sion Alun Davies, Craith

    We go to back to Wales for the latest edition of our podcast.

    From Bangor, overlooking the churning waters of the Menai Straits, to the abandoned quarries of Llanberis, this is a landscape DI Cadi John knows well. A world she never expected to return to. Drawn back for personal reasons - the faltering health of her beloved father - Cadi finds herself policing the precinct and people of her youth.

    Paul talks to stars Sian Reese-Williams and Sion Alun Davies about Welsh Noir, Cadi and Owen police partnership and what's ahead in series two.

    The Killing Times Podcast - Episode 11, Margrét Örnólfsdóttir, The Flatey Enigma

    We go back to Iceland for our next podcast to talk to the writer of the four-part The Flatey Enigma.

    Starring Lára Jóhanna Jónsdóttir as Jóhanna, it tells the story of a single mother who's forced to go back to her home island of Flatey to tie up her late father's estate in the early 1970s. There, she encounters prejudice, becomes prime suspect in a murder case and tries to work out an ancient what her linguist professor had been working on prior to his death.

    A heady mixture.

    Paul talks to writer Margrét Örnólfsdóttir about how storytelling is still so important in Icelandic culture and how the island has changed.
