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.
A thriller that tells a traumatic murder story through the eyes of three central characters: Carrie the daughter of the murdered woman, Douglas Hain the detective in charge of the investigation, and Sally the murder victim.

Taking a sip of my tea and sitting down to a pleasant evening watching. I happened upon on this commercial telly trite called 'murder city'. It is an interesting enough premise. Two mismatched detectives solve crimes (played by kris marshall and the simply divine amanda donohue), but it is one that has been done to death. (Morse and Lewis, Dazail and pascoe, frost and whoever he works with). Kris Marshall does not make a very good serious actor (i.e dr zhivago, the acting is just passable and the timing of the ad-ribs is erratic. This is not 'my family', so Marshall does not have to subject the audience to his usual nick goofiness routine.
As a serious murder program its the worst since the last ITV murder investigation, but as a piece of harmless ham, its perfect.
