Unforgotten: How Do You Solve A 40-Year-Old Murder Case?
“How do you think a person lives a life, having murdered someone, without it… showing? A whole life of relationships behind them, without anyone ever suspecting they did something… beyond awful. How does that happen?”
When the long missing remains of a young man are discovered beneath the footings of a demolished house, a murder case is reopened after forty years of no evidence.
DCI Cassie Stuart (Nicola Walker) and DS Sunny Khan (Sanjeev Bhaskar) are appointed the long cold case with no information on the body but its location. What can they dig up about a boy that history has long forgotten? Slowly, they begin to unravel forty years of secrets, connections and tragedy in a bid to discover the truth behind the body.
The moment locals have longed for – or dreaded – for four decades has finally arrived, but will anybody speak up?
Unforgotten airs tonight (Thursday October 8) at 9pm on ITV.
