Mario Van Peebles,
With the help of DS John Bacchus, Inspector George Gently spends his days bringing to justice members of the criminal underworld who are unfortunate enough to have the intrepid investigator assigned to their cases.
Warship is one of those lost treasures from the Golden and Silver Age of Television. Its great balance of strong story lines and characters set against the rough but romantic backdrop of the cruel sea made it unusual for its time, but nevertheless very engaging. Almost 40 years on it deserves a release on DVD. Solid characters, engaging drama, real tension....Warship survived because of its quality production values. With renewed interest and demand in older series, Warship is one which could easily find a loyal new audience and recapture an old one in 2010! We can only hope that in an era of DVDR on demand from the studios, it will get the opportunity to re-establish its pedigree as part of UK TV history. 2014 Note: Series 1 of Warship available on DVD from Amazon UK
