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…

Review: Unforgotten (S2 E6/6), Thursday 9th February, ITV

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…

Review: Unforgotten (S2 E3/6), Thursday 19th January, ITV

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.

Review: Unforgotten (S1 E2/6), Thursday 12th January, ITV

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…
