Inspector George Gently (George Gently) is a British television series set in the 1960s, based on the Inspector Gently novels by Alan Hunter.
Throughout the 60s, Northumberland coal mining was decimated as competition from oil, gas, cheap imports and nuclear power led to the closure of dozens of collieries. Burnsend is potentially one such community. Once a thriving colliery town, the future of the town's pit hangs in the balance as the coal board consider closing it. The mysterious death of the union leader in the mine leads Gently and Bacchus to explore the tensions and relationships in the community. They encounter families driven by politics and caught in grudges that date back to the Second World War.
Gently and Bacchus delve into a world of army secrets when a young former soldier, Scott Tanner, commits a murder in a Turkish bath. Whilst investigating Tanner's history, Gently hears of horrific allegations of what some soldiers have to face from their own side. He is forced to question the uncomfortable truth of what it means to serve one's queen and country, as an event from the past presses on his conscience.
