INSPECTOR GEORGE GENTLY SERIES 8 & SERIES 1-8 ON DVD IN NOVEMBER FRORM ACORN INTERNATIONAL: MARTIN SHAW and Lee Ingleby return for the last ever gripping instalments of the acclaimed, long- running detective series Inspector George Gently. Following their run on BBC One these final episodes arrive on DVD on 6 November 2017, as Inspector George Gently Series 8, alongside the bumper 17-disc box set Inspector George Gently Complete Series 1 – 8 courtesy of Acorn Media International. Based on the classic detective novels by Alan Hunter, the series follows Detective Inspector George Gently (Martin Shaw – Judge John Deed), who, after the death of his wife, moves up North to solve one more case, but ends up staying. Partnered by Detective Inspector Bacchus (Lee Ingleby – Line of Duty), they investigate cases in Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland and County Durham, in the swinging sixties and beyond. With their prickly relationship, that comes with warmth and humour, the pair are a winning police partnership and are joined by the feisty Detective Sergeant Rachel Coles (Lisa McGrillis – Hebburn). For the final series we join DI George Gently in 1970. It’s the start of a new decade, Heath has just won a narrow victory for the Conservatives at the General Election on a platform of peace and prosperity by taking us into Europe. But there’s radical change for women, political paranoia in the Cold War – and industrial unrest in the air.
