Season 2 / Episode 1 and airs on 05 January 2017 21:00
Unforgotten, written and created by Chris Lang (Undeniable, A Mother's Son, Torn), focuses on a ‘cold' murder case of 39 years ago, when the bones of a young man are found beneath the footings of a demolished house. An investigation begins that will unravel the lives of four people who have been waiting for this moment for nearly forty years, as they discover that the past can't, and won't, stay buried for ever.
Cassie and Sunny dig deeper into the lives of two of the people mentioned in the diary. They begin with Father Robert Greaves, who remembers Jimmy fondly, but is unable to help identify the mysterious 'Jo-Jo', the person who it appears gave Jimmy the journal. The detectives also meet Eric Slater, the former bookkeeper to Arlingham House. He also remembers the victim well - but can he provide any clues to his disappearance?
As the investigation into the cold-case murder continues, the forensic team discovers that the marks on the victim's body are consistent with known gangland torture methods. With this in mind, Cassie and Sunny question Sir Phillip about his involvement with a prominent East End crime family 40 years ago. Did the businessman or any of the shady associates of his youth have anything to do with Jimmy's disappearance or murder? Meanwhile, Eric and Claire's anniversary gets under way.
As Cassie and Sunny continue their investigation into the cold-case murder, the net tightens around the people whose names were found in the victim's diary. Sir Phillip Cross makes a difficult decision to salvage what is left of his reputation while at the same time protecting his family, Father Robert comes clean to the police and Ray returns home to find Lizzie gone.
Father Robert's revelations prove to have lasting repercussions, especially for Caroline when she goes into premature labour. Bella and Josh deliberate over the best way to deal with their father, the search for Lizzie continues and Maureen is finally able to lay Jimmy to rest.
The new series starts with the discovery of body found in a sealed suitcase in the silt of the River Lea. With the body preserved but clearly having been there a number of years, DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunny Khan begin the complicated task of identifying the victim and investigating his murder.
With an expensive watch found on the body the only evidence to go on, the item is sent to forensics who suggest approaching a watchmaker who may have repaired it to find out more about its owner.
Meanwhile, we meet four seemingly un-connected suspects who may have a link to the victim – DI Tessa Nixon who is struggling with her loner son, nurse Marion Kelsey who works with chronically ill children, Brighton-based barrister Colin Osborne who is in the process of adopting a little girl with his husband, and teacher Sara Mahmoud who is interviewing for a new position in a school that needs turning around. How do any of them link to the victim, though, and why would one of them kill him?
