About

George Gently

Martin Shaw stars in George Gently – a gripping and original detective drama, adapted from the Alan Hunter series of novels by Peter Flannery, award-winning writer of Our Friends In The North.

Its Britain, 1964: a time when the lines between the police and criminals have become increasingly blurred; when the proliferation of drugs is about to change the face of policing forever; when Britain’s youth stand on the brink of a social and sexual revolution. Inspector George Gently is one of the few good men at Scotland Yard, his sense of public duty an increasingly rare commodity in a police force where corruption is rife and unchecked. He has a fearsome reputation, earned through his relentless pursuit of notorious gangsters such as Joe Webster who, in a violent act of revenge against Gently, murdered his beloved wife Isabella.
