    Default ITV "Unforgotten" features man killed by fountain pen 35 years ago!

    We're watching the latest series of ITV's 'Unforgotten" and when we watched episode 5 from Monday evening we were surprised to find that the man who was killed 35 years ago was killed by being stabbed by a fountain pen.
    They even mocked up an online picture of a non-existent fountain pen brand to show what type of pen it was. On the mock up there was a pen that looked similar to a Parker Sonnet. The actual pen that was 35 years old and was found embedded in the man's skull that had been frozen for many years, then thawed out, looks like something in between a Parker and a Waterman but is difficult to pinpoint.

    Anyone else see it and have any ideas? https://www.itv.com/hub/unforgotten/2a3372a0023

    As a result of public outcry, there's a bill pending in Commons requiring all fountain pens be registered, and large capacity pens banned outright.

    Well, as someone who hadn't watched this week's episode yet, that was a bit of a spoiler....

    Oh I'm so sorry. We didn't watch it until last night either. But at least you knew from last week's episode that he had been stabbed in the head by something that was sharp and pointed.
    Death by fountain pen is a tad unusual though. Didn't bend the nib at all....

    Don't be sorry - my mother would have blabbed anyway! I try to save these to watch a couple at a time as I like the series so much and find it curiously unsatisfying to only watch one episode. I suppose we've go so used to binge-watching series now that I'm not good at waiting for next week's instalment.

    I know what you mean. It seems like it'a only just started to get really interesting and it's the last one in the series next week....

    When fountain pens are outlawed only outlaws will have fountain pens.

    He definitely was after the pen went into his skull and stayed there for 35 years while he was in a freezer.

    Maybe it is only safe to carry soft and flexible nibs, not firm or hard, and delicious wet noodles!

    haha, true
    also, imagine the sheer blunt force you need to use to get a pen into someone's skull
    people got hit by a flying rock in a size of a ball and skull still wont be penetrated

    Indeed. Especially as this particular pen turned out to be a very valuable, numbered and very low limited edition of a pen that was worth approximately 4000 some 30 odd years ago. The store even found the details of the buyer and in providing them to the police solved the case. No-one we all know would use such a valuable pen like that was meant to be, as a murder weapon.
