Unforgotten: The Complete Fourth Season
(Nicola Walker, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Susan Lynch, Andy Nyman, Phaldut Sharma / 2-Disc DVD / PG-13 / 2021 / PBS)

Overview: A corpse is discovered in a scrap yard. Four suspects emerge; all have links to the law and attended the same police training course back in 1989. Since then their lives have gone in very different directions. But exactly who is fighting for justice? Can the police force ever really be trusted?

DVD Verdict: Personally, I’m a HUGE fan of British crime shows, and I find myself watching some of them repeatedly. Indeed, one of the benefits of growing old is you can watch mysteries a second and third time and not quite remember the plots!

The main actors in the show do a fantastic job, but also watch the side characters closely also, of course! How does the UK have such a large pool of phenomenal character actors to draw from? Amazing.

It blows my mind each and every time when shows like this and Line Of Duty are unleashed upon the American public!

Here in this fourth season, a game changer for oh-so many reasons, although it exhibits certain reiterations in its narrative scheme with respect to previous seasons, Unforgotten continues to be an elegant series.

Not only that, but it continues to intrigue and captivate due to the precise description of its characters, its great performances and the charisma of the leading couple.

In particular that of Nicola Walker, an actress with many resources, but also with several acting tics that as time passes she knows better how to control, gaining in sobriety and forcefulness.

If you want to tear up every few minutes, this is the show for you. I’m not being flippant, for this series, and this season more so, perhaps, is just so damn heartfelt, so sad to see the survivors of crimes up close, how their lives are ruined by the death of a loved one when there is just no closure to be found.

What comes across in all the series’ is that your past can pop up at the most inopportune moments. Play it for dramatic effect and you will understand why Unforgotten is such a powerful and mesmerizing crime drama series.

Above all, it’s the humanity of the characters that draws you in and keeps you interested in what will happen to them when the past rears its ugly head - sometimes with disastrous consequences!

A truly magnificent, well acted, and overall wonderful show from start (of the series) to finish (although there is a fifth season now in production, luckily for us all), well done to all associated and affiliated with Unforgotten as you have done everyone proud. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
