Unforgotten (2021) – ITV1

As I am not really a fan of many recent crime dramas for a variety of reasons, I did see a very quick episode of Unforgotten the last year and thought that it was slightly different than many series nowadays.

For one thing, there was a human element to it; a degree of empathy and relation to modern day UK life.  This may be down to the cast’s performances, or scripts.  

The series concerns two cops, a DCI Cassie Stuart (Nicola Walker) and DI Sunny Khan (Sanjeev Bhaskar), who follow up cold cases. For this episode, number 1 of the new season, they were investigating a headless body that was found, and naturally, just what happens concerning its identification, etc.

Sanjeev Bhaskar

Yes, once again, and one of my pet peeves, is the over use of blue / brown colour correction! Why do they do this! It adds NOTHING to the story, and if anything, detracts from the drama. OTOH, the empathy and relation to modern Britain, I liked the joke about Crystal Palace supporters (!), is much better than, for example Marcella, The Bay and Vera.
