"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).
This series features sophisticated plots, three-dimensional characters, and gripping stories. Very satisfying drama. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sharon M. Bell

George Gently manages to be different. On the surface, it is similar: set in the 1960s, with a younger, more foolish detective assisting him.

Love the series very enjoyable reminds me of P.D. James famous detective. I don't care for Gently's partner but overall good series.Published 13 months ago by doz
I realize his aide is young but sometimes a little too headstrong. Overall so far, he holds my interest. I also liked Shaw as Dalgleish the one time I saw him.Published 15 months ago by Marilyn Treihart
