Episode 4
 
With Sara’s revelation about her past to her husband sending shockwaves through their domestic bliss, she fights to make him understand. However, when Sara’s youngest son overhears their conversation, it seems that her secrets are coming back to haunt her in a very public way.
 
Meanwhile, Colin is backed into a corner when he’s blackmailed further by Flora’s mother, and when his phone is stolen it seems that he and Simon have few options left. Unbeknownst to him, the investigation into David’s death also starts to shed light on the reason for Colin’s departure from his city life, which may explain his subsequent breakdown.
 
Finally, a disturbing allegation about David’s past opens up a second line of enquiry for the team and Tessa’s relationships are threatened when she is questioned again about how much she knew about her husband’s life.  
 
Series overview
 
Critically acclaimed drama, Unforgotten, starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar, returns for a second series, exploring the investigation into another historic murder case.
 
Once again created by writer Chris Lang, the new series starts with the discovery of body found in a sealed suitcase in the silt of the River Lea. With the body preserved but clearly having been there a number of years, detectives DCI Cassie Stuart and DS Sunny Khan begin the complicated task of identifying the victim and investigating his murder.  
 
Through their inquiries, the body is revealed as middle-aged man David Walker who disappeared in 1990 leaving behind a wife and young son who is now in his early 30s. With four seemingly un-connected suspects emerging, the team are tasked with finding out who wanted David Walker dead and why?
