George Gently
Season 5: Ep: 1 "Gently Northern Soul"
Martin Shaw returns in four new episodes of George Gently, a series set in north-east England during the late 1960s as the social landscape is being shaken to its core. Passionate and committed to justice, Gently is an old-time copper in a rapidly changing world. Aided by his brash sidekick John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby) - a younger detective with a much different approach - Gently investigates devastating crimes against a backdrop of racial tension, class warfare and corruption. This season, the dark underbelly of society is revealed when two young girls are found dead, and the adopted child of a middle-class couple is kidnapped. As Gently’s past catches up with him, he finds himself powerless, unprotected and persecuted. He must confront his deepest fears and fight to the death…
