If you haven’t seen season 1 of The Missing, do so, though it’s not mandatory to appreciate the excellence of season 2. Alice, daughter of Sam and Gemma Webster, went missing in 2003. In 2014 the police inform them that Alice has reappeared and claims she had been held captive with Sophie Giroux, a French girl who disappeared around the same time. French detective, Julien Baptiste (who starred in season 1), was in charge of the Giroux investigation. Although now in retirement, he cannot help becoming involved again and travels to Germany and Iraq to find answers. There are eight episodes and you will you be gripped by the drama the entire time.
