Inspector George Gently is a crime drama set in 1960s Northumberland, about an old-school detective trying to come to terms with a time when the lines between the police and criminals have become blurred. The drama series is produced for BBC One by Company Pictures and stars Martin Shaw as Inspector George Gently and Lee Ingleby as Sergeant John Bacchus.
The show’s sixth season will be set in 1969 and picks up one year on from the season six finale in which Inspector Gently and Sergeant Bacchus were shot. Though injured, Gently (Martin Shaw) and Bacchus (Lee Ingleby) have both survived the shootings to fight another day. Bacchus has put his life on the line for his boss, and this gives a new dimension to their relationship. Gently is recovering from injuries and is pushing himself back to fitness.
