After his wife Isabella is killed by a hit and run driver, Inspector George Gently considers retiring. But when Johnny, a member of a biking gang in the North East, is also run over and Gently hears that Webster, whom he believes to have killed Isabella, is in the area, he travels North to investigate, teaming up with ambitious young sergeant John Bacchus. Aware that local inspector Setters is probably corrupt and involved in the assault on his informant China Mates, Gently realises that he and Webster are actually both investigating the same crime as Webster is Johnny's father. The two men finally meet for a confrontation with the real murderer. Written by don @ minifie-1

Discussing homosexual offences, Gently says the Labour Party had promised to decriminalise them if elected. Actually they never did, the 1967 Sexual Offences Act was a private members bill (not a government bill) introduced by the Earl of Arran, and almost a copy of the bill he first proposed in 1961.

Best police duo since Morse and Lewis
21 April 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Excellent acting here. Lee Ingleby is particularly good, as ever. Martin Shaw is also on form, away from the laughable Judge John Deed series. They make a good pair, as they both have a strong and distinct manner and personality. ITV would have done better to take Ingleby instead of Fox for their Lewis series.

My only query is the accents. Considering that Bacchus is said to have attended the same school as the motorcyclists, how come Richard Armitage's character speaks Geordie, whereas Ingleby has only touches of that, and to my non-expert ears basically sounds like someone from Yorkshire?

The story is good, and the supporting cast is made up of top-class actors doing their stuff.

This cries out to be made into a series. I hope it will be.
