UNFORGOTTEN is a big hit for ITV, with it's tale of murder most horrid from years gone by.
One thing that often has people wondering is what is the meaning behind the haunting theme tune.
What is the Unforgotten theme tune?
Alongside stars Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar, one constant of all four seasons of Unforgotten has been the show’s popular title music.
The haunting tune that accompanies the titles on the ITV show is a song called All We Do.
It was first used in the opening series in 2015.
It is sung by the band Oh Wonder.
What do the opening credits mean?
Each 40-second title sequence for Unforgotten gives away a series of clues to the murder.
Every season starts with the discovery of a long-buried body, then introduces viewers to a guest cast of characters whose connections to each other, and to the historical murder, gradually unfold.
It takes six episodes to solve the mystery, but right from the start, the title sequence holds all the answers.
Peter Anderson, creative director of the studio behind the title sequences told ITV: “Some of the images are big clues.
“With the current series titles, there were some things that were taken out and then went back in, that are incredibly poignant, really incredibly amazing clues, I can only be ambiguous about it at this stage.”
The clues on the title sequence for season 4 are a smashed car window, an allotment and a discarded fountain pen.
Who are Oh Wonder?
All We Do is written and performed by Oh Wonder, a songwriting duo made up of Ant West and Josephine Vander Gucht.
They have a big online following and the video for the song has gained more than 16 million views on streaming site YouTube.
It has also been streamed 56 million times on Spotify.
What else do Oh Wonder sing?
The duo began collaborating in September 2014 and released their debut album, also called Oh Wonder, a year later.
The song used in Unforgotten appeared as one of 15 tracks on the album.
Oh Wonder have since followed up with two more albums: Ultralife, released in 2017, and No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, which came out in February 2020.
