Hold onto your hats, because we’re going to be getting a crime drama overload in the first weeks of 2017. It’s tradition – the likes of Death In Paradise, Silent Witness and Midsomer Murders all come back early in the year, and it’s no different this year. But there’s another show that’s sneaking into the schedules early doors – one that took 2015 by storm.
Unforgotten is back for a second run, and the good news is that a) Chris Lang is back as the writer and, b) Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar are back in starring roles. Joining them in this second series are Mark Bonnar, Rosie Cavaliero, Lorraine Ashbourne, Badria Timimi, Charlie Condou, Holly Aird, Nigel Lindsay, Bryony Hannah, Peter Egan and Wendy Craig.
This time around the discovery of body found in a sealed suitcase in the silt of the River Lea sets DCI Cassie Stuart and DS Sunny Khan on another cold case with a cast of new, seemingly unrelated suspects.
Here’s a trailer:
