Martin Shaw returns to 1960s Northumberland as Inspector George Gently in four feature length films based on the novels by Alan Hunter. This BBC series throws Chief Inspector Gently into a maelstrom of murders and mayhem, whilst lovingly recreating the swinging sixties in perfect and nostalgic detail.
Chief Inspector George Gently is the classic unsung hero of detective fiction and in Martin Shaw’s expert hands he becomes a passionate, growling ex-army boxer. With his sidekick, the ambitious and undisciplined Detective Sergeant John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby), they make the perfect police partnership, full of warmth and humour.
