Adapted from Alan Hunt’s Inspector George Gently novels, this British crime series is set in the 1960s where an old-school detective (PD James’ Martin Shaw) solves crime while dealing with police corruption and gangsters. The show is good, but sometimes a bit overdramatic. DI Gently’s solemn demeanor is balanced by his ambitious and undisciplined Detective Sergeant John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby, Luther). The show is based on the novels by Alan Hunter.
