Plot Synopsis

Stone-cold cases of murder test the wits of crime-solving duo DCI Cassie Stuart and DS Sunny Khan. Season 1 opens with a human skeleton found beneath a basement. The remains could be centuries old -- or four decades, as comes to light upon further investigation of the crime scene. Cassie and Sunny eventually discover the victim was a young man, Jimmy Sullivan and his nearly -- disintegrated pocket diary leads the detectives to a list of names that may hold the key to solving the murder. The list of names includes Sir Phillip Cross, a mobster who bribed his way into the aristocracy; Father Robert Greaves, a beloved vicar with a dark secret; Lizzie Wilton, a reformed skinhead; and Eric Slater, an elderly, disabled bookkeeper taking care of his wife, Claire, who is suffering from dementia. They lead very different lives, but something links them, something that explains Jimmy's final resting place and the torture marks found on his bones. Season 2 starts innocently enough with a routine river dredging operation. When the scoop brings up a soggy, old suitcase, the workers open it and find a corpse sealed up so long that the tissues have turned to a soapy substance. Gruesome forensic work identifies the victim as David Walker, a businessman missing for 25 years. Cassie and Sunny locate Walker's wife, Tessa Nixon, now remarried. A hard-bitten DI herself, Tessa reminds her fellow police officers that "63% of all murder victims are killed by their partners." But Cassie and Sunny have other suspects to consider. A pager found with Walker's remains leads them to Sara Mahmoud, a Muslim teacher who wishes she'd never heard of David Walker. Other clues connect Walker with Colin Osborne, a gay attorney in the process of adopting a young girl with his partner; and Marion Kelsey, a harried nurse in a children's cancer ward. PBS aired the U.S. premiere of UNFORGOTTEN on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 9pm (check local listings).
