According to the BBC website here, Episode 1 of Field of Blood is airing on BBC1 Scotland on Sunday at 9pm, with Episode 2 on Monday. The summary of the show, from that link:
Adaptation of Denise Mina's thrilling novel set in 1982. When the story of a murder has huge implications for her family, newspaper copy boy Paddy Meehan battles prejudices to get to the truth. As she inches closer to revealing the truth her investigations place her in mortal danger.

Jonas plays the character of Terry Hewitt:

Terry is 26 years old and a journalist at the Daily News newspaper in Glasgow. He is bright resourceful and together, a young reporter who is definitely on the way up. What he needs is the story that will make his name. After an initial misstep he becomes one of the few people in the newsroom who believes in Paddy. Terry is prepared to back Paddy’s instincts as they break the rules to prove that the police are wrong about a recent child murder.

There's also a preview at the link, which is only accessible in certain areas. I think it looks quite good-- seems like there'll be some suspense/action in with the drama.

Thanks to desertrose9 for the head's-up!! :)

weird, I felt like this was out already (and that you'd told me about it?)

HURRAH FOR VINDICATING FALSELY ACCUSED MURDERERS ahem. I am not sure how I feel about him in this screenshot. 70s hair, yes. 70s polyester with a brown tie, also yes. Cleanshaven? eeeuh O.o

Maybe that feeling's from Book of Blood? I don't think I've mentioned this before, although I'd heard a little about it a few months ago.

I'm digging the whole package, bb. XD (Take that as you will, heehee) Though I sorta have to lol that I turned three the year this is set... THOSE HAIR AND CLOTHES ARE MY PAST (not literally, obvs, just wow that's retro XD)

Hey, man, don't knock Hammer pants. The pair I had were printed with this alternating medallions-and-stripes pattern-- they were totally rad. XD (Also, the fact that I follow the members of NKOTB on Twitter has the eleven-year-old in my head flailing like she hasn't flailed since she got NKOTB bedsheets. In 1990. XD)

Oh, excellent! I'd heard about this a while back, and then nothing, so I was afraid it had disappeared - I'll have to try and see this, though being Stateside makes it a bit hard.

And I'm with hulamothon the clean shaven-ness - not so keen. ;)

Yeah, that's been kind of a problem with most of his projects which have been announced; hopefully, we'll get a chance to see this over here!

It will be lovely to see Jonas back on our screens again, though I ditto hulamoth and ladyarcherfan3 on the lack of beard.

Huh. I think scruffiness suits him better, but I'm fine with him clean-shaven, too... maybe it's all the Teachers rewatching I do, making me used to it. XD

Hope someone gives us a review!! And I don't know... that shirt is just a bit too much for me. I think I like the scruffy look better too!
