When pensioner Tom Parfitt (Michael Palin) stages a fall in his eerie Yorkshire home in order to escape into residential care, a chilling and macabre mystery unfolds, which challenges weary police detective Rob Fairholme (Mark Addy) and teenage care worker Hannah Ward (Jodie Comer) to risk everything they hold dear to unravel the truth.
A traumatic murder investigation, a ghostly haunting and a coming-of-age tale rolled into one, Remember Me takes the audience from the windswept Scarborough coast to the tragic recesses of 20th Century history. Written by Gwyneth Hughes (Five Days, The Girl) and directed by Ashley Pearce (Downton Abbey, the critically acclaimed Accused: Tracie’s Story), this three-part drama is a dark and unforgettable voyage into the unknown.
‘This part was offered to me quite out of the blue, and apart from a short appearance in Ian Hislop and Nick Newman’s Wipers Times in 2013, it was the first meaty TV Drama role I’d accepted since GBH in 1991. I especially liked the fact that it was a ghost story, as I always loved having my spine chilled ! And my character Tom was satisfyingly complex – funny, grumpy, sad, manipulative and haunted. I had to play someone between eighty year’s old and a hundred. My only complaint was when they said I wouldn’t need much make-up ! A terrific cast – working with Jody Comer and Mark Addy was a treat. And while the 2013 floods were inundating the south and west of the country, the sun shone on Yorkshire.’ Michael Palin
