Unforgotten: Interviews

UNFORGOTTEN_EP1_10 500

“HOW do you live when you have done something in your past that you have to completely bury?

“How do you present this alternative face and personality that you then believe is real? You re-write your history.

“When something awful has happened, how do you live?”

Nicola Walker talking to me about new six-part puzzle Unforgotten.

It starts on ITV at 9pm this Thursday (October 8) and is one of the best dramas I have seen in 2015.

The first production from Mainstreet Pictures, the independent drama company set up by Sally Haynes and Laura Mackie.

Unforgotten stars Nicola as DCI Cassie Stuart and Sanjeev Bhaskar as DS Sunil Khan.

Investigating the murder of a young man dating back almost 40 years to 1976.

But it’s much more than just a whodunnit.

Writer Chris Lang explores the ripples of historical crime and wrongdoing on those who have kept secrets for decades.

Together with the impact on families and others.

“The central theme is about how well you can ever really know those closest to you,” explains Chris.

The cast includes Tom Courtenay, Gemma Jones, Ruth Sheen, Trevor Eve, Bernard Hill, Hannah Gordon, Cherie Lunghi, Dominic Power, Peter Egan and Frances Tomelty.

Unfolding a story that will have you intrigued and hooked right up until the closing minutes of the last episode.

I was lucky enough to visit the cast and crew at three separate locations during filming earlier this year.
