So, we have the duo back as they headfirst into a new cold case from back in the 1990s.

Unforgotten Season 4 Episode 1 Recap
Unforgotten Season 4 Episode 1 follows back with Cassie. She was planning to finally retire but after her retirement package is revealed, she is forced back into the game. Her dad, Martin was in the early stages of rapid-onset dementia which had a symptom of being cruel verbally. She can ill-afford to forgo the £124,000 three more months of service will earn her but the repeated cusses are starting to get to her. Due to which she is already starting to resent coming back to work. One positive to come out of this is, her relationship with John remains solid.
The victim, in this case, was Matthew Walsh, a Marathons, and Millwall FC fan. He was an apprentice electrician, last seen when he was 24 back on 30th March 1990 around 11 pm. The prime suspects for the case were Robert Fogarty along with his friends who were drunk and returning from their passing out celebration from the police academy. The victim’s body was later found in Fogarty’s fridge. It sounds like drink-and-drive leading to a hit-and-run case, here in which, it led to an attempt to hastily cover-up the body. But, there is certainly more going on here and to solve this, we have the best woman, Cassie. She is like a retired cowboy who has come back for a final gun sling. So, as she investigates this vehicular manslaughter, she assured DI Sunny that she will just do her job and not get too involved in the case.
