Unforgotten

Review

At its midway point, a series like this could easily tread water. We know who was killed in 1990, and we’ve met the people who were – criminally, shamefully, or entirely innocently – in his orbit at the time. Now we cycle between them as Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar’s muted cops sift dutifully through revelations that seem seismic until the next one comes along. Everyone looks shiftily into the middle distance.

Unforgotten is too well performed to flag, though. Mark Bonnar and Rosie Cavaliero are particularly good tonight as coiled springs who might go ping at any moment, and I like Adeel Akhtar as a loyal but intense husband who, for now, is a mild minor character. Then there’s the final shot, which changes everything.

Summary

Sunny makes further investigations into David Walker's life that suggest he was a troubled man with a number of issues. Marion has a prickly chat with Cassie about her past and the inquiry reveals her close relationship with an IRA activist. As the police investigation encroaches on their life, Sara and Colin open up to their partners with secrets about their past. Whodunit, starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar, with Lorraine Ashbourne, Mark Bonnar, Douglas Hodge, Wendy Craig and Holly Aird.
