GEORGE GENTLY, ABC1, 8.30pm
SOME pretty nice period detail buttressing the story here— a two-month-old baby, adopted after five miscarriages, taken from her bedroom cot. Her middle-aged parents are a bank manager father and mother who does nothing, as DS Bacchus puts it. This allows us to meet Alison Steadman as the baby wrangler. She’s never bad, and you’ll be glad she’s here tonight.
