The complete first series of the gritty cop show that starred Jill Gascoigne 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. This release comprises the episodes: 'Killers', 'Recoil', 'Help', 'Shock', 'Blade', 'Rogue' and 'Melody'.
United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), SPECIAL FEATURES: 2-DVD Set, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Uncut, SYNOPSIS: Jill Gascoine stars as Detective Inspector Maggie Forbes in this exciting and ground-breaking ITV police series from the 1980s. Maggie is assigned to Seven Dials Police Station in the heart of Central London, right next to the city's infamous Soho district - an area where life is cheap and rank corruption and depravity are everywhere. Unlike her cynical and hard-edged male colleagues on the force, she has a gentler, more sympathetic approach to the human tragedies she encounters - and it's an approach that gets results. Maggie Forbes seems like a woman with a brilliant career ahead of her - until a devastating family tragedy almost shatters her life. Hugely popular and original (Maggie Forbes was British television's first ever female detective!), all seven episodes of the first series of The Gentle Touch are collected here to enjoy on DVD for the very first time.
