A corpse is dredged from a river in a suitcase, with only a waterlogged pager in his pocket to identify him by. How will our sleuths DCI Cassie Stuart (Nicola Walker) and DS Sunny Khan (Sanjeev Bhaskar) solve the crime? The second series of ITV’s acclaimed drama started out as standard procedural, then morphed into something far more brave and devastating.
What we said: Unforgotten is so much more than a satisfying murder mystery. It is such a human show. This one has been a thoughtful and timely examination of how sexual abuse affects children. Of the physical and irreparable mental damage it does, how it changes that person for ever.
