Sergeant Sunny Khan in ITV’s newest, Unforgotten.

The six-part drama has already been compared to hit Broadchurch and focuses on a cold murder case from 39 years ago. It begins when the bones of a young man are found beneath the footings of a demolished house and an investigation begins that will unravel the lives of four people, and threatens to reveal secrets that have been kept for nearly forty years.

Sanjeev said it is a ‘fantastic’ series and added, “With a good detective series, you, me, the viewers, we are the detective because we discover the clues at the same time.”

Sanjeev and his fellow actors in Unforgotten are still in the dark as to the ending as they filmed two alternative scenes and have not been told which one the show is going to go with.
