This 3 disc set collects all ten episodes of the excellent second series of "The Gentle Touch". I, for one, am thrilled that Network DVD have started releasing this criminally over-looked drama series that achieved mammoth ratings and scooped numerous awards during its five year run between 1979-1984. "The Gentle Touch" bore the distinction of being Britain's very first police drama to feature a female in the leading role, thus making the show an important landmark in British television history.

The second series of "The Gentle Touch" boasts strong, high calibre writing from Terence Freely (who also went on to create the spin-off "C.A.T.S Eyes"), Tony Parker, Roger Marshall, Pat Hooker, David Crane, Neil Rudyard and Tony Hoare. Its lead character DI Maggie Forbes, is played beautifully by the charismatic, award-winning Jill Gascoine. In the first series, Maggies husband Ray had been shot dead when he intervened in a security van heist. As the series progressed it diligently dealt with how Maggie juggled her life as a DI at the Severn Dials police in London and how it contrasted with her home life bringing up her teenage son Steve. It also explored how she coped when all the while she was still grieving over the tagic loss of her husband (who was also a policeman). Jill Gascoine's intelligent, sensitive, compassionate performance was why audiences and critics loved "The Gentle Touch". It was a show both men and women could enjoy. Its place in British television hisory is firmly cemented..
The pace of the second series is slightly more swift than the first and slightly more action-orientated. Like in season 1, the studio scenes were filmed on video while the outside locations were all shot on film.
