ABOUT THE SHOW

The perfect police partnership

It’s 1969 and Gently (Martin Shaw) and Bacchus (Lee Ingleby) are both suffering from their own physical and mental scars several months after the horrific shootings that nearly claimed their lives in Durham Cathedral.

As the series opens, Gently has been pushing himself to full fitness and is back at work, whilst Bacchus is still recuperating from his serious injuries in a police convalescent home...

Inspector George Gently has become an audience winner and while lovingly recreates the Sixties in perfect, nostalgic detail – and Martin Shaw and Lee Ingleby make the perfect police partnership, full of warmth, humour and attack. In this new series they discover they have different approaches to a world that is changing very fast.
