George Gently; a policeman with a strong sense of justice and - arguably – one of the few good men…. Gently has a fearsome reputation, earned through his relentless approach to pursing notorious gangsters in London. And now this renowned, very individual Commander is heading to the dramatic landscape of Northumberland, where the rugged hills meet the lakes. His journey is prompted by the murder of Gently’s wife by his old adversary, the infamous gangster Webster – a murder that took place on the day of Webster’s release from the prison Gently delivered him to. He hoped to find peace in the beautiful North of England, but the murder of a young biker gives rise to a suspicion that Webster has followed him North and is somehow connected to the victim. The hunt for Webster brings Gently into contact with the young Sergeant Bacchus, who finds himself both thrilled and daunted to be working for the legendary detective. Together, they get embroiled in a story of drugs, greed and love. Pilot episode of 1 x 90' & Series 1 consisting of 2 x 90'
