What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
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. An instant hit with viewers, The Gentle Touch became one of the most successful police dramas ever made.
This fifth series sees DI Maggie Forbes facing the continuing challenges of policing in the Eighties, with powerful and contemporary storylines from a writing team that includes Terence Feely (Callan), Tony Hoare (Minder) and Peter Hammond (Z Cars); Lysette Anthony, Gordon Kaye, Lynda Bellingham and Louise Jameson guest-star.

Top Customer Reviews
The Gentle Touch was a great idea and in its early days, there was some thoughtful, believable and genuinely dramatic episodes, but by 1984 it had clearly lost its way, and if it wasn't for my obsession with having complete collections of the series that I buy, I wouldn't have wasted my money on this one. For fans (and there are plenty of them), all the problems with structure and execution won't matter one jot, but if it's a believable 50 minutes of police drama that you're after, I'd have to suggest looking elsewhere.
