New Season of 'Inspector George Gently' Premieres on KCET


Get ready "Inspector George Gently" fans, a brand new season starts Sunday, December 20, 2015 at 10:00 p.m. on KCET!

A new season of first-run episodes of the detective drama debuts with the incorruptible, uncompromising Inspector George Gently, who was transplanted from London's Scotland Yard to England's North Country. Gently's reputation for honesty and relentlessness makes him almost as feared among his colleagues as he is among criminals.

Based on the long-running series of novels by Alan Hunter, these feature-length modern dramas boast clever writing, stylish direction, and strong casts. Powerful mysteries unfold against the beautiful backdrop of rural Britain in the 1960s, a region just beginning to feel the rumbles of the era's social and cultural quakes.

"Inspector George Gently" will air Sundays at 10:00 p.m. See show details below:
