It's 1966 and the world is changing fast... Martin Shaw plays one of the unsung heroes of detective fiction, Inspector George Gently, whose passionate investigations reveal the dark underbelly of a society on the cusp of change. Set in an idyllic coastal village in Northumberland, 1966. When the body of a loose young woman is found murdered Gently and Bacchus find themselves investigating a family with unimaginable secrets. Initially it appears that the woman's estranged husband, and father of young daughter, is responsible for the killing. But as they further investigate this disturbed family they discover a far more alarming truth.

In the series time line, this episode takes place roughly two (2) years later than the last series. Several things have changed, for instance Bacchus is now separated from his wife and has traded his little MG for a more practicable sedan. PC Taylor now boasts an impressive mustache. There is also a larger role for the coroner who now provides much more detailed forensics information than in past series, a sign of progressive scientific change. See more
