TV show description:
A British crime drama anthology series, the Unforgotten TV show comes from creator and writer Chris Lang. The series, which airs on ITV in UK, follows DCI Cassie Stuart (Walker) and DS Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan (Bhaskar), as they investigate historic cold cases.
In season one, after the bones of a young man are found at the site of a demolished house, Stuart and Khan have a 39 year-old murder to crack. Their investigation will shake up the lives of four people who have been waiting for this moment for nearly four decades.
The potential suspects include Father Robert Greaves (Hill), Sir ‘Frank’ Philip Cross (Eve), Lizzie Wilton (Sheen), and Eric Slater (Courtenay). The story unfolds in various locations in England — from the outer London suburbs to Southend, Westminster, and the Fens.
The police train much of their focus on Arlingham House. This red-bricked Victorian has served as a private home, rented flats, a hostel for homeless young men, a British Rail records office, and a DHSS office.
Stuart and Khan need to determine who murdered this boy, and what events in 1976 led up to his death. As they delve more deeply into the case, the secrets they uncover will make a lasting change to the lives of several families.
Unforgotten explores complex issues about modern life. How well does anyone really ever know anyone else? It ultimately asks if justice is ever “too cold to serve.”
