    Unforgotten

    Knocks Line of Duty right out of the water. Just brilliant.

    Took the words right out of my mouth , 100 times better then the overrated/hyped Line of Duty which is good but not in this class .

    I take it this series has finished now? I've been waiting to do a binge watch of it - that's part of my Easter weekend taken care of.

    Made quick work of season one last week, now into season two. Really well made and enjoyable. They perhaps rushed the endings of the various characters in season one, but otherwise excellent.

    A few comments re: Line of Duty, which I don't think you can compare. Each season pretty much follows the same trajectory. It's basically 24 for the UK, very silly but watchable, at the outer realms of plausible but if you can park your brain for an hour it's a fun watch.

    Agreed, it was brilliant.It'everything that Line of Duty isn't. Realistic dialogue, excellent acting, sensible, believable but clever plot & storyline.

    not seen this since series 1, as I don't watch much TV these days, but I remember the first one was really good.

    if it wasn't for the BBC putting high quality dramas out there then ITV wouldn't bother making excellent programs like this. they would be able to compete for audience with cheaply made shite programs and would very quickly revert to that. you only have to look at the TV output of some other countries to see what a profound impact the BBC has on the entire industry over here.

    You really seem to have a downer on Line of Duty for some reason.

    Is it just the current series or have you never liked it?

    Liked the 1st two, but BBC writers have a habit of putting style over substance, and the story lines get more & more far fetched. Peaky Blinders is a classic example. Also having watched LoD & Unforgotten on consecutive days I felt there was a serious gulf in quality.

    Me and the Mrs are on the final series #4. It is excellent although admittedly all the stories begin similarly in that the police involved work on old cases, hence the title ‘Unforgotten’.

    They’re both written by completely different writing teams though they’re both just on the same channel.

    Re: Unforgotten

    I enjoy both Unforgotten and Line of Duty, but if I could only watch the one of them, I’d have ITV on.

    Best we didn't tell you as it would spoil it , it could return, I hope it doesn't as it gone with a bang with the last episode , up there with the great police dramas like Red Riding https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1259574/

    Re: Unforgotten

    I agree with the OP. It it/was indeed far better than Line of Duty. This series was particularly compelling, with a far more plausible ending than LoD.

    I've only just started watching Unforgotten ( halfway through the first episode) so I can't really compare although it does look quite good
    It is a who's who of British TV stars of the late 20th and early 21st century. So far I have seen Peter Egan, Gemma Jones, Tom Courtney, Bernard Hill, David Troughton, Hanna Gordon > Not forgetting a nod to Waking the dead

    Loved Waking the Dead and Silent Wittness, although lately SW is becoming the adorable Emilia Fox show, she is sexy though.
