Season 8

The final season of the crime drama about an old-school detective coming to terms with 1960s Britain. With 1970 looming, Gently and the team investigate miscarriages of justice and corruption. Faced with mortal danger, how will they survive?

In Newcastle in 1970, DCI Gently re-opens Bacchus's old case of a woman convicted of her husband's murder. Will he expose a miscarriage of justice or jeopardise his reputation?

In the second and final episode of the series,Gently is set for retirement, but when DI Lister, the head of a new covert special investigations unit, presents him with an unsolved case, Gently can't resist one more intriguing offer.

The case leads to political intrigue and corruption - and tests Gently to his core.

Inspector George Gently is made by Company Pictures, executive produced by Caroline Levy, Faye Dorn, John Yorke and Peter Flannery Company Pictures and by Polly Hill for BBC One. The films are produced by Peter Norris (Line Of Duty), and Ep 1 & 2 directed by Roger Goldby (Call The Midwife) with Ep 3 & 4 directed by Tim Whitby (The Village).

Inspector George Gently is filmed on location in Durham and the North East.
