  • Murder,suicide,theft,freemasonary,local politics & the first on-screen appearance of Lisa Bacchus are all ingredients as George & John investigate the goings-on at a local flour mill.

    There is plenty happening in this final episode of what has been an exceptional run of episodes of 'Inspector George Gently' & it remains to be seen as to whether a third season will see the light of day.The writers have cleverly tied up several loose ends so that if this is to be the very final episode it will have been a satisfactory conclusion but have left the door slightly ajar should another season be in the pipeline.



    As has been its custom,'Gently Through The Mill' is another complex outing & another insightful glimpse into County Durham circa 1964 with its commentary on local politics & freemasonary as well as the fragility of working relationships & marital relationships.



    Trainspotters will have noticed the appearance of Tom Goodman-Hill as Draper.He also appeared with Martin Shaw in 'Death in Holy Orders' as Eric Surtees.



    All in all,'Inspector George Gently' has been terrific viewing & another triumph for Shaw & a good introduction to Lee Ingleby (Bacchus).I for one would welcome a new season somewhere down the track.moreless
