"Great performances and superb characterizations" --San Francisco Chronicle
Bringing an air of world-weary dignity to his role, Martin Shaw (Judge John Deed, The Professionals) returns as Inspector George Gently, a former Scotland Yard sleuth now tracking murderers in Britain’s North Country. Far from London, these once-quiet counties are just beginning to feel the social and political changes of the 1960s. The menacing crimes test even Gently’s big-city experience and hard-won wisdom. And his impulsive young protégé, Sergeant John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby, Nicholas Nickleby), tests nearly all of his patience.
This series finds Gently and Bacchus confronting sex-club entrepreneurs, corrupt politicians, gangs, and more. The first-rate supporting casts include Tim McInnerny (Blackadder), Nicholas Jones (Kavanagh QC), Mark Williams (Harry Potter), and Andrew Lee Potts (Primeval). Based on the long-running series of novels by Alan Hunter, these feature-length modern dramas teem with intrigue, wit, and style.
