Storyline

This episode sees the racial unrest that is sweeping the United States reach British shores as Enoch Powell launches his tirade against immigration. But racial harmony can be found at the 'all-nighters' that take place in 1968, where disillusioned young people, black and white, escape the boredom of factory life to dance the night away to imported soul music. In Newcastle, the haven of equality found at the Carlton Ballroom all-nighter is destroyed when a young black girl, Dolores Kenny, is murdered, leading Gently to uncover a disturbing and racialist undercurrent growing within the local community.

Very irritating
3 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story line, especially when it came to Bacchus and his interview antics, were well over the top The character of Bachus is, ordinarily, very irritating. Last night his part was totally improbable One more such story line and I shall watch no more of the series Does the writer of the series really believe that the last episode was credible? Bring back judge Deed! Why does one have to write ten lines in submitting a comment? I made the point I wanted to make in four lines I have struggled to reach ten lines This is my first posting. Had I realised that ten lines were compulsory I would never have bothered to register so as to be able to make a comment. Must be getting near to ten lines now!
