Airdate: Unforgotten

UK crime drama Unforgotten begins on ABC next week.

2015 UK crime drama Unforgotten begins on ABC next week.

The series sees DCI Cassie Stuart & DI Sunil Khan investigate the body of a young man discovered in a derelict building.

The series is created by actor / writer Chris Lang (The Tunnel, Hustle, Primeval).

Tom Courtenay won a BAFTA as Best Supporting Actor for this show.

This aired in the UK in late 2015 with a second season this January.

When the body of a young man is discovered in a derelict building, DCI Cassie Stuart (Nicola Walker) – one of the Met’s smartest detectives – is called in to investigate with her partner, DI Sunil Khan (Sanjeev Bhaskar).

Jimmy Sullivan was a homeless boy, murdered in 1976 when the building was a hostel. His diary implicates four suspects: Clergyman Robert Greaves (Bernard Hill), a devoted husband and father; Sir Phillip Cross (Trevor Eve), an eminent entrepreneur, and business tsar to the government; Lizzie Wilton (Ruth Sheen) a middle-aged woman who, alongside her husband Ray, works with disadvantaged black kids; and wheel chairbound Eric Slater (Tom Courtney), who is carer to his wife Claire (Gemma Jones), who’s in the early stages of dementia.

Each of them has something to hide. As their lies unravel, the people they love most begin to wonder what else they might be capable of.

The more layers of deception that Cassie peels back, the more she realises that nothing in this case is black and white. Can you ever really know the people closest to you? What secrets have they buried?

8.30pm Friday 9 June on ABC.
