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…

We are now at the stage in Unforgotten where, if you have been following the fates of our four suspects and have come to feel affectionate towards them, you need to stick your fingers in your ears and chant: “La la la – not listening!” NB: Spoilers, spoilers, spoilers

Review: Unforgotten (S2 E4/6), Thursday 26th January, ITV

It says much for the crafting of Unforgotten – Chris Lang’s writing and Andy Wilson’s direction – that we want to spend quality time with these characters. Over the past year there have been several series during which we itched to fast-forward through the kind of perfunctory and clunky ‘Basil Exposition moments’ that film critic Mark Kermode…

The tensions playing out within the four suspects’ families were tighter than the strings on Andy Murray’s favourite tennis racket in last night’s Unforgotten as investigations into David Walker’s murder continue – and Sunny and Cassie got a day out at the seaside.

DCI Cassie Stuart (Nicola Walker) must really have been feeling her age in this week’s episode, having to explain the workings of such antiquated technology as pagers to her squad of millennials.Toothsome techie Nathan from the phone shop has managed to salvage fragments of the texts recorded on the pager on a 26-year-old corpse of…

Review: Unforgotten (S2 E1/6), Thursday 5th January, ITV

This is a welcome return to creator–writer Chris Lang’s sensitive crime drama, which provides a vacation from inferior boot-in-the-door-type cop procedurals. Never sacrificing characterisation to shock tactics, the first series set the bar so high that we shiver in anticipation of the goodies to come over the next five weeks.

ITV confirms Unforgotten 2 transmission date

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…

Filming begins on season two of ITV’s Unforgotten; reveals plotlines

ITV’s Unforgotten was one of the hits of last year, rated by both critics and viewers alike. It was placed number seven in our best crime dramas of the year list, which obviously was its most glittering accolade. The series, starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar (among others) was always set to return, but now…

As this deeply moving and ingeniously plotted series comes to its end, we’re no nearer to certainty about the identity of Jimmy’s killer; but in a sense this has become less important, as each of the main suspects has crumbled under the burden of guilt, whether over Jimmy’s death or their own personal sins.

Review: Unforgotten (S1 E5/6), Thursday 6th November, ITV

With last week’s episode setting us up to expect another death, Unforgotten keeps us dangling – has Father Rob made off with his inconvenient parishioner Sheila, or has Lizzie done away with herself? Or has someone dug up Eric’s garden and found out why he won’t leave the house? Or has Cross set the Turkish…
