Award-winning actor Martin Shaw returns as Inspector George Gently (Judge John Deed, The Professionals), a former Scotland Yard detective from London now tackling crime in the north of England. With the air of a man who has seen it all but still hopes for the best, Gently confronts the passions-racism, family conflict, greed, revenge-that can lead to murder. As ever, he receives assistance from his abrasive, politically incorrect sergeant, John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby, Nicholas Nickleby, Harry Potter), who has his own take on the societal change unfolding in 1960s Britain.
Based on the novels of Alan Hunter, these four gripping dramas feature clever scripts, beautiful landscapes, and a distinguished cast. 4 mysteries on 2 DVD or Blu-ray discs, approx. 354 minutes, SDH.
