Series 2 - Episode 1 Bigtime



You will be forgiven for forgetting Unforgettable. The procedural about an investigator with hyperthymesia (a photographic biographic memory of her own life) premiered in the UK back in 2012, but the second series is only reaching us now after a brief cancellation in America.

It has jettisoned most of its supporting cast, but no matter. All of the elements will be familiar from other shows: chrome-plated office, ridiculous tech, snappy dialogue that’s gone limp. For a human CCTV who can recall the past in perfect detail, Carrie Wells (Poppy Montgomery) spends a hell of a lot of time repeating it. The opening case in the series is one of child kidnapping – reminiscent of the disappearance of Carrie’s own sister, the one day she just can’t remember.


Promoted alongside Al to Manhattan's Major Crimes unit following a series of impressive arrests, Carrie is now required to use her gift in different ways. An investigation into the kidnapping of an 11-year-old girl cuts close to home in its similarities to Rachel's death. Starring Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh, with Dallas Roberts (The Good Wife, The Walking Dead) joining the cast as Carrie's whip-cracking new boss.
