ITV drama series to be filmed in High Peak

Parts of a new series of award-winning ITV crime drama Unforgotten will be filmed in Buxton in the coming days.

The programme follows two detectives, DCI Cassie Stuart (played by Nicola Walker) and DI Sunny Khan (played by Sanjeev Bhaskar), as they solve cold cases of disappearance and murder. 

It first appeared on our screens in October 2015 and the fourth series is due to be aired later this year. 

Producers say the six-part series will feature a family living in the Peak District and open with the discovery of a dismembered body in a scrap metal yard. 

Filming will take place in Buxton and Castleton, but exact locations of sets haven't been revealed to avoid spoilers.
