By now you’re probably up to date with The Missing, and if you are, up until about an hour ago you were one step ahead of me.

But in the two episodes I’m quickly going to recap, a whole load more stuff has happened and the story has moved on significantly. Continue reading

So off we went on series two of The Missing last week – another emotional rollercoaster ride, this time featuring the Webster family, who were coming to terms with the reappearance of their lost daughter, Alice Webster. But that wasn’t all. That was in 2014, and now, in the present day, Julien Baptiste was in Iraq Kurdistan on the hunt for the man who he thought had abducted Alice and her fellow abductee, Sophie Giroux. We also saw that, two years after her disappearance in 2014, Alice Webster was lying in the ground. So, following two timelines, we were on our way to find out what happened to Alice and her fractured family, and follow Baptiste as he travelled the world tracking down the bad guy. Continue reading

We’re a month or so away from the second series of The Missing – this time starring the excellent Keeley Hawes and David Morrissey – but a new teaser has hit the streets, featuring the gravel-voiced Tchéky Karyo’s Julien Baptiste in fine, foreboding form. It doesn’t reveal too much, but it does tell us that there’s a different spin in this second series – that of a missing child who reappears after 12 years after her initial disappearance.
