All 13 episodes from the third series of the gritty cop show that starred Jill Gascoine as DI Maggie Forbes. More complex and realistic than most detective series of the time, the programme ran for five years in the early 1980s and dealt with the kind of political and social issues that other shows didn't seem to touch on. Episodes comprise: 'Gifts', 'Doubt', 'The Hit', 'Scapegoat', 'Knife', 'Protection', 'Paint It Black', 'Affray', 'Black Fox, White Vixen', 'One of Those Days', 'Vigil', 'Damage' and 'Solution'.
United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Jill Gascoine stars as tough, no-nonsense female cop Maggie Forbes. Made at a time when there were very few ranking female officers in the police force, The Gentle Touch not only showed police procedure within a Metropolitan Police CID unit but also allowed insight into how a woman might cope with such a role in what was very much a man's world. Instantly successful with the public, The Gentle Touch ran for five years before spinning off into another series - C.A.T.S. Eyes. Following the continuing challenges faced by the recently widowed D.I. Maggie Forbes, this third series of The Gentle Touch features more powerful and contemporary storylines that reflected the changing nature of police work in 1980s Britain. With appearances by George Sewell and scripts by a distinguished team of writers that included Terence Feely (Thriller) and Roger Marshall (The Sweeney, The Professionals), it's no surprise that The Gentle Touch was one of the most successful police dramas ever made. This complete series was originally screened in 1981 and 1982. ...The Gentle Touch - Complete Season 3 - 4-DVD Set ( The Gentle Touch - Complete Third Series ) ( The Gentle Touch - Complete Season Three )
