After 10 years and 23 episodes the BBC One drama Inspector George Gently comes to a close with a final film: Gently And The New Age. Once again starring Martin Shaw as the honourable DCI George Gently and Lee Ingleby as Inspector Bacchus.
The story begins with Gently giving evidence at The Old Bailey against corrupt police officers in the Met – his old enemies. It should be one of the final acts of his career, but he is asked to take on one last job by Lister, the head of a new Special Investigations Squad, which examines evidence against ‘bent’ coppers.
Guest stars include Richard Harrington (Poldark, Hinterland), Adam Levy (Before I Go To Sleep) and Steven Robertson (Trainspotting 2 , Shetland).
The series, created by Peter Flannery and originally based on the Gently novels by Alan Hunter, is made by Company Pictures. It also stars Lisa McGrillis as DS Rachel Coles.
