Four New George Gently Episodes Commissioned by BBC

George Gently (BBC)

BBC has commissioned a new series of four 90-minute episodes of George Gently.

Martin Shaw stars as the police inspector in this crime drama set in Northumberland in the late 1960s. Lee Ingleby plays his sidekick DS John Bacchus.

Writer Peter Flannery says, "Gently and Bacchus return to my home turf of Durham and Northumberland with plenty more murders and cases to solve. It's 1968 and there are huge changes taking place in society, and hopefully our series continues to give a real portrait of the age."

The character is based on one created by crime novelist Alan Hunter, who featured the Detective Inspector in a long-running series of mysteries published from 1955 through 1999.

Filming has begun on location with the episodes expected to air on BBC One later this year.
