Overview
Award-winning actor Martin Shaw returns as Inspector George Gently (Judge John Deed, The Professionals), a former Scotland Yard detective from London now tackling crime in the north of England. With the air of a man who has seen it all but still hopes for the best, Gently confronts the passions-racism, family conflict, greed, revenge-that can lead to murder. As ever, he receives assistance from his abrasive, politically incorrect sergeant, John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby, Nicholas Nickleby, Harry Potter), who has his own take on the societal change unfolding in 1960s Britain.

Based on the novels of Alan Hunter, these four gripping dramas feature clever scripts, beautiful landscapes, and a distinguished cast. 4 mysteries on 2 DVD or Blu-ray discs, approx. 354 minutes, SDH.
Episodes
Disc 1
Gently Northern Soul
The murder of a black teenager has Gently and Bacchus seeking her killer in a community where racism is never far from the surface. The detectives encounter local prejudice and anti-immigrant sentiment but discover that there may have been other motivations for the crime.

Gently with Class
After a car turns up in a river with a drowned young woman in the passenger seat but no driver, the detectives follow the trail to the home of local aristocrats. Bacchus resents the family, and Gently suspects his sergeant may be crossing a line to get a conviction.

Disc 2
The Lost Child
When an adopted baby is snatched from her crib, suspicion initially falls on the birth mother, who may be having second thoughts about giving up her child. But after a ransom demand turns out to be blackmail, Gently turns his attentions closer to home.

Gently in the Cathedral
Upon his release from prison, a vicious career criminal from Gently's London days seeks revenge on the detective. Allegations about the inspector start to fly and many people-Bacchus among them-are all too ready to believe the worst.
