ITV renews Unforgotten for a fourth series

Some good news has been issued forth from the town square: ITV has announced today that one of the most consistent, affecting British crime dramas of the past decade, Unforgotten, will return for a fourth series. The new series will see Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar reprise their roles as DCI Cassie Stuart and DI…

REVIEW: Unforgotten (S3 E6/6)

The death of suspect Peter Carr on her watch was a punch to the solar plexus Cassie (Nicola Walker) was not ready for. As her guilt drags her down, sidekick Sunny (Sanjeev Bhaskar) has regained his customary haunted, confused demeanour as he watches his beloved colleague’s spirits circle the mental drain. Since the police raid…

REVIEW: Unforgotten (S3 E5/6)

By this stage, though the field of suspects is narrowing, the case is throwing up anomalies and making it harder for the protagonists to find the catharsis they seek. As we suspected, attention is turning to James Hollis’s errant son Eliot, a troubled youth, and not the little boy he was portrayed as. But Hollis…

REVIEW: Unforgotten (S3 E4/6)

There must be a reason why Unforgotten creator/writer Chris Lang has, throughout the three series, envisioned four chief suspects and it may be as simple as maths; counting and calculation. A triumvirate, you see, has spiritual strength. Three is the first odd prime number, which gives it the power of indivisibility (God, the Son and the Holy Spirit – see, indivisible). The…

REVIEW: Unforgotten (S3 E3/6)

Last week’s delicious little cliffhanger – the tense phone call between TV quiz host James Hollis (Kevin McNally) and his estranged son Elliot (Tom Rhys Harris) – has probably quelled the left-field gut theory that we had about who murdered Hayley Reid. The Hollises, père et fils, may be complicit in some guilty secret concerning…

REVIEW: Unforgotten (S3 E2/6)

  Who was it who partied like it was 1999 on the night of teenager Hayley Reid’s murder? Having identified the remains found under the motorway, and established that the cause of death was strangulation, our intrepid tecs now have to settle on some suspects. Journalist-turned-TV-quizmaster James Hollis (Kevin McNally), who has an ego the…

REVIEW: Unforgotten (S3 E1/6)

Welcome back, DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunny Khan – the most human cops on the box ­- you’ve been away too long. Let’s hope that three’s the charm. BAFTA nominee Nicola Walker (last seen transcending rather trite material in The Split) and Sanjeev Bhaskar (here, there and everywhere – and occasionally gracing the recent…

INTERVIEW: Nicola Walker, Unforgotten

Chris Lang’s cold-case drama, Unforgotten, is the best British crime series currently on television. There’s just simply nothing to touch it. The Missing, maybe? Shetland perhaps? I think Unforgotten is probably the best of the bunch. Over two series it has consistently told strong stories in a sensitive and intelligent way, with core members of…

ITV confirms transmission date for series three of Unforgotten

One of the series we’re really looking forward to is series three of ITV’s Unforgotten, Chris Lang’s superior cold case drama starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar. They’re both back in the new, third run reprising their roles as DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan as they investigate another emotionally-charged cold case. Now…

ITV releases trailer for series three of Unforgotten

As we mentioned yesterday, as soon as the World Cup finishes there’s going to be a whoosh of new stuff on our TVs to fill the football-sized hole. One of the first to do so will be series three of Unforgotten – Chris Lang’s cold case drama starring the ever-brilliant Nicola Walker. Sanjeev Bhaskar is…

Series three of Unforgotten to begin filming, adds cast and plotlines

All the heavy hitters are coming out to play in 2018, and our top-rated British series from last year – Unforgotten – is one of them. Starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar, the cold-case series is as sensitive and beautifully written and acted as it is enthralling. The good news is that filming is about to…

ITV recommissions Unforgotten for third series

Twenty-seventeen has already proved to be a busy, varied and excellent year for crime drama, with several series already hitting the mark. One of those early trailblazers has been ITV’s Unforgotten, which was both a critical and ratings success when it returned for a second series in January. Now we’ve received news that it will…
