Critic Reviews for Unforgotten Season 3

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

The quality that most distinguishes Unforgotten from the general run of TV crime drama is the quiet seriousness and palpable humanity with which it treats the business of murder.

There are chilling scenes in the final episode.

A tangled web is being weaved, but conclusions-wise it's too early to tell anything much.

Unlike the last two seasons, we already have a connection established between our four main players before the first episode is out.

How good is Unforgotten? You must excuse me. I had simply... forgotten.

Like the rest of its kind, [Unforgotten] exploits misery for entertainment, but it is all done in the best possible taste.

Jul 30, 2018 | Full Review…

The key skill of a police procedural isn't always inventing new and horrible methods of slaughter or fetidly deviant predators: it's the storytelling that needs to be killer, and Unforgotten, for all its compassion, was merciless.

The revelation is played brilliantly and I am happy that each Unforgotten series has its own flavour, so we are kept guessing until the very last.

It is beautifully crafted and performed; tight, gripping, but also moving and so very human. Now that the World Cup's over, there is no better drama on television than Unforgotten.

Top Critic

Written by Chris Lang, the series is distinguished by the attention given to the grief suffered by those who have lost loved ones in circumstances that remain unexplained.

Dec 28, 2018 | Full Review…

An emotionally intelligent script, sinuous narrative, pitch-perfect casting and a genuine interest in people: Unforgotten should be remembered for many years.

Aug 14, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The odd couple are mismatched to the extent of being a perfect fit, and are in possession of such quantities of sexual chemistry that they are practically married.

    Nicola Walker is my favorite actress, started watching her in MI-5! Sanjeev Bhaskar is excellent and the series is a must watch!

    I love cold case stories and this one set in the UK is one of the best I have seen. So glad they came out with another season3. My Sunday nights are locked in to PBS at 9 PM. Love it!!

    I disagree with the 100% on this one. I thought the long, soulful, fax empathy was just unrealistic at first, but by the third or fourth staging, it was pathetic. Pandering to the audiences sensitivities is one thing, but this version of a police squad room made me yearn for Sipowitz and NYPD Blue.
