The seventh season of BBC One’s drama series Inspector George Gently will premiere on Wednesday April 29th at 8pm, it has been announced.
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 seventh season, which consists of four feature length episodes, sees Gently and Bacchus continue their winning police partnership. Still on their team is the feisty WPC Rachel Coles (Lisa McGrillis), who appreciates Gently’s forward thinking and gives as good as she gets from Bacchus, crushing his stereotypical male attitude towards a female PC. Both are also keen to further their careers and be promoted – which for Bacchus is long overdue.
