'Unforgotten', written and created by Chris Lang, focuses on a cold murder case of 39 years ago, when the bones of a young man are unearthed 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 forever.

Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar take the lead roles as DCI Cassie Stuart and DS Sunil “Sunny” Khan, the modern day police team who gradually unravel deep-rooted and long-forgotten secrets, which will have a dramatic impact on their investigation and the lives of four potential suspects – Father Robert Greaves, Sir ‘Frank’ Philip Cross, Lizzie Wilton, and Eric Slater. The slow revelation of these secrets as Cassie and Sunny hunt for the killer will alter the dynamic of the families and their loved ones forever.

But who is the murdered boy, and what happened in 1976, which was the catalyst for his murder? The pain and despair of his bereft, inconsolable mother, grieving for a lost child as she still searches for answers nearly 40 years later.

Cassie and Sunny begin to unpeel the layers of the investigation, only to discover each of the potential suspects has a past they’d sooner stay buried. Reputations could be lost, relationships fractured irrevocably and beliefs and opinions challenged.
