George Gently

Award-winning actor Martin Shaw stars as commander George Gently, an uncompromising cop transplanted from London's Scotland Yard to England's North Country in the mid-1960s. Gently's reputation for honesty and relentlessness makes him almost as feared among his colleagues as he is among criminals. He finds an odd ally in John Bacchus, an overeager, opinionated young sergeant who plays fast and loose with police procedures.
