          Remember Me is a chilling three-part series which follow Tom Parfitt, played by Michael Palin, a frail and elderly Yorkshire man seemingly alone in the world whose admittance to a nursing home triggers a series of inexplicable events. On the day Tom leaves his home to move into residential care, he becomes the sole witness to a violent death. Teenage care assistant Hannah Ward and investigating police detective Rob Fairholme try to unravel the riddle of Parfitt’s mysterious past as they are drawn into an eerie and dangerous world of lost love and betrayal.
 
 
Episode 1 (Premieres July 16, 2017)
At the age of "eighty-odd," Tom Parfitt sits alone in his terraced house in the otherwise entirely Asian community of a small Yorkshire town, and remembers a strange drowned figure washed up on a beach. Tom carefully fakes a fall, to trick his social worker into taking him into residential care. 
 
Episode 2 (Premieres July 23, 2017)
When care assistant Hannah Ward visits the strange old man Tom Parfitt in the hospital, she is shocked to learn that he has escaped. When she decides to investigate, Hannah is plunged into the same nightmare world that haunts her dreams.
 
Episode 3 (Premieres July 30, 2017)
Care assistant Hannah calls on detective Rob to help find Tom Parfitt. They learn that Tom has been sighted at a nearby caravan park. When they find him, Tom is battered and bruised. His caravan is destroyed, much like his room in the retirement home – windows blown out and the interior drenched.
