This BBC production is set in late 1960s northern England. It features a young detective and his older mentor, George Gently (hence the name) This DVD Series 6 contains four ninety minute episodes. Gently is a gruff but entirely affable senior inspector; Bacchus is new to his craft and not entirely sure in his own personal life.
The episodes are, well, gently paced. Things, in this series, never turn out entirely the way we think they will.
The series is based on a series of novels by Alan Hunter.
Definitely one of my favourites.
