5.0 out of 5 stars Eventually found my new favorite series 21 Mar 2014
By DJ
Verified Purchase
Really good acting even from the unknown actors during this series. Very seldom do you see an actor that is so fit for the character - Martin Shaw is just George Gently. It's like only David Suchet is Hurcule Poirot. I hope we going to see more. Every episode can count as a full length movie. In most series episodes you can select some episodes as better or worse than others - not with this series. All episodes are of equal high standard, research of the 1960's issues were well portrayed. Well done to all involved in this series. There are a lot of murder mysteries out there - I would rank this one first, then the Agatha Christie's (more latest Poirot's) then the Endeavour series 1 - George Gently is in a class of his own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 18 Nov 2013

It is so nice to see a series that does not rely on the ubiquitous car chase and foul language.

Just shows a story can be told without being profane.

I enjoyed it very much and will buy any future series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant drama. 6 April 2014
By Hilary.

I think Martin Shaw is always going to ensure that anthing he appears in is well worth watching and buying. I had only started watching the series when series 6 was showing, so it was great to sit and watch a good drama every night for a few weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this series 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase
This series drew me in as I grew up in the sixties and was in Europe in '67-69. This series is very authentic. I purchased an all region dvd player so I could order this and other British series directly from Amazon UK. I get impatient waiting for a US release. Martin Shaw is at his best. I just hope he doesn't retire anytime soon (as in Midsomer's John Nettles).
