Editorial Reviews

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

"Great performances and superb characterizations" --San Francisco Chronicle

"Great, bordering on brilliant" --Esquire.com

Tony®-nominated actor Martin Shaw (Judge John Deed, The Professionals) returns as Inspector George Gently, a grizzled London detective and grieving widower who finds new life--and new purpose--in Britain’s windswept Northumberland. In the mid-1960s, this remote region has just begun to feel the ripples of social and cultural change rocking the rest of the world, and Gently brings big-city smarts and unflappable judgment to his job. Teamed with brash young sergeant John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby, Nicholas Nickleby), he uncovers motives for murder in a once-tranquil place during a time of transition.

In these feature-length mysteries based on Alan Hunter’s popular novels, Gently and Bacchus delve into a family’s dark secrets and a university’s chaotic campus. The splendid casts include Daniel Casey (Midsomer Murders), Ruth McCabe (My Left Foot), Sarah Lancashire (Sons & Lovers), and Warren Clarke (Dalziel & Pascoe, Red Riding).

5.0 out of 5 stars 3rd series in this fine 1966 era Brit crime stories April 28, 2011
Format:DVD
New G.Gently episodes hot off the 2010 shelf. Gently has proven to be a winner with British Murder Mystery fans. This new set is no exception.

George Gently episodes are based on novels by Alan Hunter. This first series showed Commander Gently's wife killed right before his eyes. Through his grief, the cop takes the high road in finding criminals and bringing them to justice. Very much like "Midsomer Murders" [recommended] without the multiple murdered victims, but with the multi-plots in police, private, and associates lives. Bacchus has a money problem in one of episode from this series. Good writing makes the show. Will the large volume of Hunter novels available for adaptation cause this show to continue? Hopefully!

Gently, played by Martin Shaw, is through, calm, and plays the mentor/father to his youthful assistant, Detective Sargent John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby). Their relationship is as important to the story/series as the crimes and investigations. Both are performance perfect. Bacchus provides some laughs. Gently's grief, sometimes brings tears. An emotional crime series, mystery, suspenseful, fast moving, and packed with plot. Setting is 1966.

Feature length episodes, each carry SUBTITLES.
"Gently Evil"--Gently and Bacchus investigate a brutal murder in a coastal Northumberland village. A BEAUTIFUL location to get bludgeoned. There are signs of a sympathetic nature to this killer of this girl. A birth certificate indicates Satan being her daughter's dad. There is much to uncover yet to get to the bottom of this crime. A dark nature here.

"Peace & Love"--Peace protesting and mob action against the police is due to the arrival of a nuclear sub. A demonstrator's leader is dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great show and an absolute must for mystery fans July 13, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Judge David Johnson, DVD Verdict -- "Series 3 continues the adventures of grizzled, no-nonsense Chief Inspector George Gently (Martin Shaw) and his jumpy sergeant John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby). The pair is tasked with investigating murders in 1960s Northumberland, their cases almost always containing layers of twists and reveals that leave them stunned by the end. Two shows on deck this time -- Gently Evil, Peace & Love -- running 90 minutes apiece. I confess I'm not much of a lover of the genre, but these Gently offerings are so well-staged and absorbing, I always find himself hanging on to each minute, up until the usually surprising reveal. The anchor is Martin Shaw, who consistently turns in great stuff as the eponymous inspector. Gently is understated and stern, yet he's doubtlessly a bad-ass and owns every scene he's in. He may not have the martial artistry or gunplay skills of your generic Hollywood Alpha, but everyone fears him and the guy is never wrong. Gently is quick to rebuke his over-eager and occasionally knuckle-headed partner and Bacchus takes umbrage at this. Still, Gently is so legendary, Bacchus knows how lucky he is to be paired with such a stud. Shaw and Ingleby have good chemistry together and despite their character's sporadic friction, there is affection there, approaching a father/son dynamic and it works. Both episodes are reliably strong, though the "Gently Evil" is my favorite. The twist was faintly telegraphed but the writers were deft enough to keep the twists rolling until the very end. The result is a tense, upsetting 90 minutes. "Peace & Love" has twists of its own, but ends up focusing on the social mores and anachronisms of the '60s. One of the reasons I enjoy the series is that the setting supplements the mystery and doesn't overpower it. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Series 3 July 9, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I rank it four stars instead of five because there are only two episodes, not because of the content. Both episodes are excellent. If you haven't watched this series, it is good to start with season 1 so you know the background of the two main characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars GG 3 - In the US first, HOW? by leaving out the extras September 28, 2011
Format:DVD
I am a huge fan of Martin Shaw's work and UK mysteries in general. When I saw George Gently Series 3 available in the US before it was available in the UK I thought that was unusual but snapped it up anyway. Now guess what? The UK version is available and in addition to the 2 episodes it also includes extras, features, scenes, etc. All the version in the US contains is the 2 episodes PERIOD.

Don't get me wrong, GG Series 3 is outstanding entertainment, but I am forced to give this DVD 4 stars (versus the 5 stars it probably merits) because I feel Acorn Media is playing the US market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining British Mystery Drama August 9, 2011
Format:DVD
We discovered this series sort of by accident but are very glad we found it. George Gently, played by Martin Shaw is a Detective Inspector with a mind of his own who works with a Detective Sergeant John Bacchus, played by Lee Ingleby. Bacchus has a mind of his own as well but is plagued by the challenge of growing up.

Series three is a two episode series and follows Series 2 which has 4 episodes and Series 1 which has two episodes. Additionally there is a one episode pilot which introduced Gently to the TV audience. Although Series 3 makes sense alone it would be helpful to work through the other episodes in order to gain the full impact of this one.

BBC announced its intentions to produce Series 4 in September of 2010. Series 4 will have 2 episodes and features George Gently, Lee Ingleby, and Simon Hubbard as PC Taylor.

The series is good and will probably be enjoyed by those who appreciate British detective mysteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlike Other Detective Shows
George Gently manages to be different. On the surface, it is similar: set in the 1960s, with a younger, more foolish detective assisting him.
