Martin Shaw star as Inspector George Gently--an incorruptible, uncompromising cop transplanted from London's Scotland Yard to England's North Country 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)--an over-eager, 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, the sever powerful 90-minute 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.
