In­spec­tor Ge­orge Gen­tly

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Why Gen­tly (Martin Shaw) doesn’t throt­tle his racist, sex­ist, ageist off­sider John Bac­chus (Lee In­gleby) shows true re­straint on the part of the chief in­spec­tor. His pa­tience, over six sea­sons and 23 episodes dat­ing back to 2011, is re­mark­able. Then again, Bac­chus is a handy re­minder of the prej­u­dices that reigned in the 1960s. Yes, Gen­tly With Hon­our, episode 18 from last year, is a re­peat, but get used to them. They’re here un­til the rat­ing sea­son kicks off again in Fe­bru­ary. Gen­tly and Bac­chus in­ves­ti­gate a for­mer sol­dier who mur­ders a man in the show­ers of a gay club, then dis­ap­pears.
