Overview

Veteran British actor Martin Shaw brings to life author Alan Hunter's Cmdr. George Gently -- an incorruptible, uncompromising cop transplanted from London's Scotland Yard to the Northeast 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) -- an overeager, opinionated young sergeant who plays fast and loose with police procedures. Together the two tackle cases involving murderers, drug dealers, gunrunners, and more. The three feature-length dramas collected here -- "Gently Go Man" (original air date April 8, 2007), "The Burning Man" (July 13, '08), and "Bomber's Moon" (July 20, '08) -- boast clever writing, stylish direction, and strong casts, including guest stars Richard Armitage, Phil Davis, and John Kavanagh. The stories unfold against the beautiful backdrop of rural Britain, a region just beginning to feel the rumbles of the era's social and cultural quakes.
