What did you love about The Missing?
It was superbly written with a show-stopping performance by James Nesbitt. I’ve always believed he’s one of the great actors of his time and this series more than proved it. There hasn’t been a more intense or convincing performance on television all year. In fact, in many a long year.
Why do you think it was so popular?
It clearly tapped into deep-rooted fears, but I think the acting raised it far above the level of being simply a “topical” film. This was a timeless human drama of loss, guilt and obsession.
Was there a stand-out moment?
It came at the very end when I realised that the looming figure roaming around the Russian housing estate was in fact Tony Hughes still searching dementedly for his lost son.
