Inspector George Gently and DCI Banks are Back

Fans of 60s era Northumberland crime drama, George Gently, will be happy to know that both Inspector Gently and DS Bacchus survived the gunshot wounds they received at the end of the last series.  They may be slightly battered (especially Bacchus) but they’ll soon be back at work solving four new cases.

Episode one is set to air on Thursday, February 6th.

Also returning is moody Yorkshire crime drama DCI Banks.  The series, based on the novels of Peter Robinson, will consist of six new episodes (three two-part stories).   You can watch the trailer here and then tune in to ITV on Monday, February 3rd for the first episode.

In the US George Gently is available for streaming on Netflix and Acorn TV.  The first two series of DCI Banks were broadcast on PBS so there is hope that the third may find its way here as well.
