MUMBAI: When it comes to British dramas, you know you are in for a compelling story that keeps you on the edge! Here are two such gripping British sagas that stay true to it’s promise. Zee Café, one of the leading English general entertainment channels in India, in association with BBC Worldwide is set to bring two of the latest award-winning dramas Unforgotten Season 1 and Doctor Foster Season 2 as a part of the second edition of its successful property BBC First. Filled with fury, deceit and some teardrops, the shows will enthral viewers and keep them hooked as they air on weekdays at 10 PM.

Unforgotten, the crime drama series is a masterpiece featuring two sharp police detectives in an exhilarating hunt as they dig out cold cases that involve historical disappearances and murders. DCI Cassie Stuart (Nicola Walker) and DI Sunny Khan (Sanjeev Bhaskar) break any stereotypes for detectives as they are both brilliant and compassionate. Together, they embark on a mission to unravel the secrets buried for years together! Speaking about the success of the show, the Indian-origin actor Sanjeev Bhaskar says, “I was incredibly pleased and proud at having been involved in the first series. It’s rare to get such a consensus of critics and audience as well. I’m over the moon that people embraced it in the way they did.” Starting 28th August, 2018, Unforgotten will air every Tuesday at 10PM exclusively on Zee Café!  

A case of infidelity and a woman’s rage that brings the whole world down – Doctor Foster Season 1 was nothing short of dramatic explosions showcasing the award-winning actress Suranne Jones who won a BAFTA for her role as the protagonist in the series. Speaking about her character in Doctor Foster she says, “She’s not particularly likeable. It’s not a case of, “Let’s all root for Gemma because her horrible husband is having an affair.” I think the great thing about Doctor Foster is that they are ambiguous characters.”

Taking a two-year leap, Doctor Foster Season 2 kickstarts with the city’s top doctor Gemma Foster (Suranne Jones) and her teenage son Tom leading a happy life. However, things turn topsy-turvy as Gemma’s ex-husband Simon (Bertie Carvel) along with his partner Kate come back into the picture. With hatred and anger brewing between these ex-lovers, the series follows the new dimension to this estranged relationship as they happen to reunite for a night of passion. What’s more? The season culminates in the most appalling climax that further adds to the! Come 30th August, 2018, Doctor Foster S2 will air every Thursday at 10PM exclusively on Zee Café!
