George Gently: Series One
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 an odd ally in John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby, Nicholas Nickleby) - 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.
