Editorial Reviews

In 1960s Britain, an upstanding detective takes on a dangerous world

“Great, bordering on brilliant” —Esquire.com
“Splendid” —Los Angeles Times
“Tremendous performances” —The Sunday Times (U.K.)

Detective Chief Inspector George Gently (Martin Shaw, Death in Holy Orders) returns to the job six months after he and his sergeant, John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby,Place of Execution), were gravely injured in the line of duty. Both officers appear to be on the mend, physically at least. But while Gently is intent on putting the incident behind him, Bacchus clearly is not—and shocks his boss by submitting a letter of resignation.

At a time of changing attitudes and values in Britain, Gently and Bacchus are undergoing transitions of their own. In these four new episodes set in 1969, Bacchus lets a new constable’s (Lisa McGrillis, Hebburn) modern ways of policing get under his skin, while an aging Gently finds himself more and more adrift in a rapidly evolving world. Guest stars include Jemma Redgrave (Bramwell) and Robert Pugh (Game of Thrones).

5.0 out of 5 stars Policing in England's North Country, 1969 December 16, 2013
Format:DVD
Martin Shaw is superb as a deeply intelligent and ethical police detective who has become fed-up with corruption at London's Met. Complex, honest, and stalwart, Inspector George Gently (Martin Shaw) is a veteran of World War II who had happily married his lovely Italian bride. After witnessing her murder in "Series One," the grieving Gently seeks refuge in the North East. Shaw is masterful, powerfully depicting a man with deep integrity and convictions, and a talent for boxing. Those of you who enjoy Vera are in for a treat. Filmed in England's starkly beautiful North Country, and historic city of Durham, this vivid series boasts high-production values, and authentically recreates the ambiguous, and at times disturbing, era of the late 1960s.

Series Five ended on a disturbing note, a cliffhanger, where the fate of our main characters was unsure. Veteran cop George Gently mentors Detective Sergeant John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby), a young fellow whose morals run adrift amidst the swirling social turmoil of the 1960s. As Gently's ambitious sidekick, Ingleby inhabits his character perfectly. You may recall Ingleby's inimitable turn in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban , as the Knight Bus conductor, Stan Shunpike. Blessed with abundant talent and a memorable voice, Ingleby is incisive as the menacing Vic Tyler in the highly regarded 1970s police/time-travel hit Life On Mars: The Complete Collection (U.K.).

5.0 out of 5 stars A 6th series and it keeps a crisp gritty hook December 21, 2013
Format:DVD
Dramatic HD cinematography. Packed suspense & cop action. 4 [cinema feature length] exciting episodes have different themes. Aristocrat family prejudice, racial conflict, revenge & greed each take a turn. Great adaptations of Alan Hunter crime novels, filmed in HD [great for Blu-ray fans.] All episodes show rural Durham England set in the year 1968. Fun period background music. I love all aspects of this copper series.

George Gently (Martin Shaw) is a fine copper, yet grieving widower of 4 years. His assistant John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby) displays a bit of a learning curve when it comes to correct police procedure. Together they get the job done, one way or another. This due has thrilled UK crime show fans since 2007 and a 2013 series is in production. Each season seems to get even better.
My favorite episode of all time is 2-Gently with Class, due to the music (see why below).

SDH SUBTITLES for this 6th series of 4 long feature episodes
1 Gently Between Lines
2 Blue for Bluebird
3 Gently Going Under
4 Gently from the Cold
George Gently series began well in 2007 and has raised the bar ever since. Competes in quality to Midsomer Murder, especially with the two-generational leading characters. Of course there is crime violence and blood, it is murder investigations, but suitable for older teens through adults.

George Gently Collection: Series 1-4
also comes in Blu-ray

5.0 out of 5 stars GEORGE GENTLY does it again! April 14, 2014
Format:DVD
After the stunning cliffhanger at the end of Series 5, it is with great satisfaction to find that the four episodes of GEORGE GENTLY Series 6 maintain the same high standard of quality as the previous programs. Gently Between the Lines, the first of the new episodes, shows the aftermath of Gently and Bacchus’ respective recoveries. Gently, a war veteran, is able to take things in stride and move on, whereas Bacchus clearly suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and wants to leave the Force. This provides some immediate conflict between them.

The episode opens with a riot scene in which it is interesting to note there isn’t a false moment to be found. Often in such scenes involving a lot of actors, the background performers can frequently be seen to be either over doing it or looking self-conscious. Such is the meticulous attention to detail–a defining aspect of this series–that this is not the case. Every actor plays the sequence with the utmost conviction.

The attention to period detail (the series is now up to the year 1969) is completely convincing, including such bits of dialogue when a female police officer is called “Pet”, an example of ’60s sexism, though interestingly in the series VERA, another Acorn Media release, Vera refers to almost everyone as “Pet”. This is a double standard, to be sure, but there you go.

After a young man dies in police custody, Gently and Bacchus must investigate to see if they can shed light on the situation, especially as it appears the young man may be linked to the severe injury of a police constable who was at the riot scene. Gently’s investigation is not appreciated by the local police, who feel the young man was responsible for the wounding of the constable and should not be given any special investigative consideration.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE THIS SERIES April 2, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
DID NOT DISAPPOINT ME. MARTIN SHAW IS EXCELLENT AS GEORGE GENTLY. THIS SERIES GOES JUST BEHIND MIDSOMER MURDERS. I STILL MISS JOHN NETTLES THOUGH. I WISH THESE GUYS DID'NT HAVE TO RETIRE.
