Unforgotten, Series 2 by Chris Lang (ITV, 2017) Another moody but naturalistic cold-case investigation, focussed as much on crimes of abuse and the lasting damage they cause as on the solving of a murder. The allocation of police resources seems a tad far-fetched, but even this is addressed. Excellent characterisation.
Unforgotten, Series 1 by Chris Lang (ITV, 2015) A crime drama based more on genuine human interactions than manufactured confrontation. The cold case premise allows for plot entanglements that aren’t too far-fetched, while the police detectives—Nicola Walker’s character in particular—are scripted and portrayed as real people at work.
