Reviews

This four disc set features all four episodes that make up the acclaimed and award nominated second series of George Gently Martin Shaw returns to 1960s Northumberland as Inspector George Gently in four feature length films. The series throws Chief Inspector Gently into a maelstrom of murders and mayhem, whilst lovingly recreating the swinging sixties as it finally hits the North-East, in perfect and nostalgic detail. Chief Inspector George Gently is the classic unsung hero of detective fiction and in Martin Shaw s expert hands he becomes a passionate, growling, ex-army boxer. With his sidekick, the ambitious and undisciplined Detective Sergeant John Bacchus, they make the perfect police partnership, full of warmth and humour. But even the closest partners can come to blows when Gently and Bacchus enter the boxing ring, to raise monies for the police widow s fund but who will be knocked out for the count of ten?

Back to the 60's we go again for series 2 of George Gently,Martin Shaw and Lee Ingleby are very good as Gently and Sgt.Bacchus his partner.Four 85 minute movies start off with Gently with the Innocent,a murder at and old childrens home no one wants to talk about,nice twists and turns.Gently in the Night is about a woman found dead in a church who worked at a hostess club with lots of hanky panky going on but Gently and Bacchus think more there than meets the eye.good story.Gently in the Blood a case about a mixed race baby found with it's mother a civil servant with some crime connections.Gently through the Mill a mill boss is found hanged,was it suicide or murder,money was found missing from the safe so Gently is on the case.The first two were my favorites from this set but very good for fans of this type show and Martin Shaw fans too.

George Gently Series 2

The George Gently series are excellent, in mu opinion one of the best detective/police series of recent years. Martin Shaw as always delivers a first class performance and is backed by a solid cast.

I hope that there will be a new series each year for years to come.

I have finally got around to purchasing the DVDs of the back series and look forward to watching from episode one to date.

George Gently, played by Martin Shaw, is the kind of Chief Detective Inspector that we all would want advising us and working for us in our town. Detective Gently is from the UK and rose through the ranks at Scotland Yard. His wife was murdered in front of his eyes and he decided to retire. However, a case came his way that involved his wife's murderer, and he took it. The case took him to the north of England, Northumberland, near the Scottish border, and he found he liked it. Gently found his new home.

The time is 1964, England is still in the leeway between the conservative UK and the new generation that wants to be free. The bouffant hairdos, the shirt and ties and blue suits. The times they are a'changin', but The Beatles have not invaded as of yet. Northumberland seems to be the seat of drug running and other crimes, and Chief Detective Inspector is kept quite busy. His partner in crime, so to speak, is young Detective Sergeant, Lee Ingleby, aka John Bacchus. Detective Sgt Bacchus
is a work in progress, and Gently has some work in front of him. Bacchus is very young, but determined to be the best detective he can be. He is married to the Chief Constable's daughter, and it appears he married her because she was pregnant, and not because he loved her. We can see trouble on the horizon. We don't know much about Gently's personal life, this is all business, and he is having difficulty while mourning his wife's death.

Gently is a very classy man, and he is a perfectionist. He is also one of the more intelligent detectives, and we learn how he solves a case. He is polite, does not believe in brutality with the people who he arrests or brings in for questioning. Brutality seems to be the right of passage at this time, and it is a good lesson that Gently bestows on Bacchus.

We seem to be spoilt for choice at the moment when it comes to British Detective Dramas. George Gently is up there at the top, and unique in so much that it manages to turn back time with great authenticity. Superb acting, stunning evocative locations and cinematography all come together seamlessly to create the sixties spirit

For everyone who love detective dramas set in another time period, this is a really good example. The classic set-up with the older more experienced detective against the younger, eager works well here.

It is always a pleasure to see people that you know from other roles take on a character and convince you that they are that character especially when you loved them as someone else. I am beginning to get to know who George Gently is and to like him.
Obviously one partly buys things because you like the actor, but there is a danger that it can be same old same old. Not with Inspector George Gently. Martin Shaw plays the character with thought and intelligence. Lee Ingleby seems to be learning how to be a better detective and a better actor from Martin with every episode and the writing skills of Alan Hunter are exceptional.
The series seems to get better as time goes on and I hope it continues for many years to come.

Thank you Amazon for brushing my prejudices away. Despite being recommended this for a long time I avoided it because of my dislike of Martin Shaw. I take it all back. Martin Shaw, as Gently, is one of the strongest characters I have seen on TV for a long, long time. The series is beautifully filmed (in Northern Ireland?), beautifully acted by Shaw and his fellow cast, and the stories are credible. Thank you Amazon and thank you Martin Shaw
