The eight season moves into the 1970s, with DCI George Gently facing retirement. In the opening episode Gently discovers the victim's wife was convicted of the murder eight years ago, he decides to re-open the case; a controversial move. But DI Bacchus opposes Gently's decision, not least because he worked as a DS on the original investigation and putting mentor and protégé at complete odds.

George Gently is ostensibly a matter of fact police procedural set in 1960's northeast England; atmospheric, absorbing, first class escapist fare. After a decade of production, the drama (eight seasons in all) has folded its tent. Last night watched the final episode, an unexpectedly superb summing up of collusion, corruption, control, the mandatory protocols foisted upon us all via the agenda of the deep state (we being deemed always expendable). What better way to make known the interconnectedness of it all: investigating the murder of a woman in Washington, County Durham, reveals its linkage to the puppet masters across the Atlantic in Washington, D.C. Worth your while to start with season 1, episode 1.
