Show Summary

This is a British detective show based on a similarly titled series of novels by the late Alan Hunter.

Chief Inspector George Gently of Scotland Yard is an old-fashioned policeman who has gained respect but few friends through his single-minded pursuit of law-breakers and his disgust with the corruption in the police force.

Gently decides to retire after the murder of his wife, but not before solving his final case. Using his unusual combination of reason, deduction and a somewhat jaded understanding of man's nature, with the ambitious Bacchus by his side, will Gently's justice prevail?

    The year is 1966, and the World Cup has come to England. With the USSR due to play at Roker Park, and the fear of the 'Reds Under the Bed' exemplified by the upcoming Polaris submarine landing at the nearby Jarrow docks, tensions are running high. Gently and Bacchus investigate the murder of a well-known left-wing academic, found dead in the docks after a CND rally.

    This takes them onto the Durham University campus - an ancient temple of learning, struggling to come to terms with the novel influx of students from the working class and brash, radical, academics. Sexual and social rebellion is everywhere, and to the young and optimistic these forces seem inevitable and unstoppable.
