11 TV shows to watch this February

11. Unforgotten

When Nicola Walker’s character, DCI Cassie Stuart, died in a car crash in the last season of Unforgotten, it could have been the end of this tense drama about detectives looking into unsolved cases from years or decades before. So it was great news to hear that the series would continue with Sanjeev Bhaskar as DI Sunny Khan, Cassie’s loyal backpack-wearing number two. Bhaskar is as reliable as Sunny himself, who now reports to a new DCI named Jessica James (Sinead Keenan), whose first day on the job arrives while the team is still in mourning. The show has always done a terrific job of merging the often guilt-ridden characters involved in the season’s cold cases with the detectives’ bloodhound work and often frazzled personal lives. Let’s hope that dear, sane Sunny doesn’t unravel the way Cassie did. 

Unforgotten premieres later this month on ITV in the UK and later this year on Masterpiece on PBS in the US
