Unforgotten: Season 3

Filming commenced in March 2018 on the third series of  the critically acclaimed drama Unforgotten. Created and written by Chris, the new six-part series sees the return of BAFTA nominee Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar as DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan as they investigate another emotionally-charged cold case.

The pair will be joined for the series by acclaimed actors Alex Jennings (Victoria, The Crown) Kevin R McNally (Pirates Of The Caribbean, Designated Survivor), Neil Morrissey (Line Of Duty, The Good Karma Hospital) and James Fleet (Indian Summers, The Vicar Of Dibley) who play a close-knit group of old school friends that have stood by one another through thick and thin.

However, when the body of a teenage girl who went missing at the turn of the millenium is found at a building site off the M1 motorway, the four men are placed under the spotlight and their relationships are tested to the limit. We also delve deeper into Sunny and Cassie’s own personal lives this series, experiencing the effects that the cases have on their own relationships and well being.

Set across the south of England in locations including Norfolk, West Sussex, Bristol, Hampshire and London, the new series will explore how everyday lives can be fractured and destroyed by one event, showing that appearances can often be deceiving.

Hailed the “best detective drama of the decade” by the Daily Telegraph and “crime drama of the highest class” by The Guardian,  the first two series proved hugely successful with viewers and critics alike, with the last series receiving an average consolidated viewing figure of over 6million with a 21% share.
