Unforgotten spoilers follow.

Unforgotten series 4 ended with a bang. Well, it ended with a car accident that resulted in the death of Nicola Walker's DCI Cassie Stuart.

A fifth series was announced with a new character partnering up with Sanjeev Bhaskar's DI Sunny Khan, and now writing on the series has begun.

Creator Chris Lang tweeted yesterday (July 8) that he had sat down to pen, or rather, type, the scripts for the fifth run. "Back in my other office, in the heart of Soho, writing #Unforgotten 5," he tweeted. "Happy."

Plenty of fans wanted to know if the opening of series 5 would pull a Dallas and reveal that Cassie's death was just a bad dream, but we highly doubt that's going to happen.

One fan theory Chris did respond to, however, said: "Is Sunny having problems with his personal life, I can see Aisha and possibly a David. Bet Usha's back."

"Maybe he is. Maybe he isn't. Ain't sayin'," Chris replied, which still gives nothing away, but might be worth keeping in mind.

The Walking Dead actor David Morrissey even joined in the fun, asking if he was in the series. Chris joked that Morrissey will play "a thrusting young tec who drives a mini clubman and plays real tennis".

"She's a fascinating (if a little eccentric) character, who closes the eyes of dead people better than any other cop on the block. You will play her marvellously my darling," he continued.

Again, it's not something that we think would happen, but it would be an interesting way of keeping the show fresh, so we'll file it under the 'maybe' pile.
