Synopsis In 1960s Britain, an upstanding detective takes on a dangerous worldTony?-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).Gently EvilCalled to a crime scene at a working-class boarding house, Gently and Bacchus find a woman horribly beaten to death, her eyes covered discreetly with a handkerchief. The victim also carried her daughter's birth certificate, with the name of the child's father crossed out and "satan" penciled in. Following this lead, Gently and Bacchus probe the twisted secrets of a family that seems to harbor pure evil. Peace & LoveWhen nuclear submarines plan to dock at the local naval base, young peace protesters from Durham University clash with the police. The next morning, the demonstrators' fiery leader, faculty member Fraser Barratt, turns up dead at the dockside. The investigation takes Gently and Bacchus to the campus, where big changes are blowin' in the wind?and the social, political, and sexual tumult brings little peace.
