Award-winning actor Martin Shaw (Judge John Deed, The Professionals) stars as Commander George Gently-an incorruptible, uncompromising cop transplanted from London's Scotland Yard to the North East of England in the mid 1960s. Gently's reputation for honesty and relentlessness makes him almost as feared among his colleagues as he is among criminals. But he finds and odd ally in John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby, Nicholas Nickelby)-an overeager, opinionated young sergeant who plays fast and loose with police procedures. Together the two tackle cases involving murderers, drug dealers, gun runners, and more.

Based on the long-running series of novels by Alan Hunter, these feature-length modern dramas boast clever writing, stylish direction, and strong casts, including guest stars Richard Armitage (Robin Hood), Phil Davis (Vera Drake), and John Kavanagh (The Tudors). The powerful mysteries unfold against the beautiful backdrop of rural Britain, a region just beginning to feel the rumbles of the era's social and cultural quakes. Three mysteries on 2 DVD or Blu-ray discs, approx. 265 minutes, SDH.
