Synopsis 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 prot?g?, 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. Disc 1 Gently with the Innocents Real-estate developer Cora Davidson shows up at her newly purchased property and finds the reluctant seller murdered in his backyard. Gently and Bacchus focus on the mansion's mute gardener, but they soon learn that the house has a sordid history. Disc 2 Gently in the Night A beautiful young woman turns up brutally murdered on the altar of a Newcastle church. Delving into the victim's past, Gently uncovers her connection to Rake's, a swinging gentleman's club that has become a target for religious protesters. Disc 3 Gently in the Blood The theft of expired passports, and the subsequent murder of a female clerk, expose potentially explosive ethnic hatred in a seaside town. The victim's boyfriend faces off against a gang of Arab toughs, with Gently and Bacchus caught in the middle. Disc 4 Gently through the Mill Mill manager Patrick Fuller is found hanging from the rafters of his workplace. Was his death really a suicide? or murder? The investigation uncovers adultery, embezzlement, and a connection to a secret society.
