“You hope we can serve it as well second time round.

Nicola Walker talking to me about returning to the role of DCI Cassie Stuart in the second series of Unforgotten.
Teaming up again with Sanjeev Bhaskar, as DI Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan, for a new six-part story starting on ITV at 9pm this Thursday (Jan 5).
The acclaimed first series was followed by a BAFTA Best Supporting Actor Award for Tom Courtenay’s portrayal of Eric Slater.
The 2017 series, again written by Chris Lang and directed by Andy Wilson, includes a new cast of ‘suspects’.
With some unexpected twists along the way sure to provoke debate among viewers.
Beautifully acted by all involved – not least Nicola and Sanjeev.
