Overview

The BBC sustained a reputation for years as one of the finest purveyors of mystery programming in all of broadcast television; one of its most unique series in this genre, Inspector George Gently, debuted in 2007. The program, which takes place in the 1960s, stars Martin Shaw (Judge John Deed) as the title character, an ex-Scotland Yard detective who now spends the bulk of his time investigating murders in the North Country of England - an area just beginning to feel the impact of social and political change sweeping the more urban areas of the nation. From episode to episode, the crimes at hand thoroughly baffle George, and he's continually exasperated by the high-strung temperament of his protégé, Sergeant John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby). This package from Acorn Media presents all four feature-length mysteries from Series 2 of Gently, which originally aired in May 2009: "Gently with the Innocents," "Gently in the Night," "Gently in the Blood" and "Gently Through the Mill." Special features include text interviews with Lee Ingleby and Martin Shaw, production notes from producer Johann Knobel, and a series of historical facts pertaining to 1964.

George Gently: Series 2 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

I have both Series 1 and 2 now and will be purchasing Series 3. The stories, the costumes and settings, the 1964 "feel" of this series are excellent! The actors are very believable and different from others on the many great detective shows coming out of Great Britain. I knew nothing about this until a promo caught my eye and I followed through and purchased the first DVD. I'm very glad I did!
