Disc 1
Gently Evil

Called to a crime scene at a working-class boarding house, Gently and Bacchus find a woman horribly beaten to death, her eyes covered discreetly with a handkerchief. The victim also carried her daughter’s birth certificate, with the name of the child’s father crossed out and "satan" penciled in. Following this lead, Gently and Bacchus probe the twisted secrets of a family that seems to harbor pure evil.

Disc 2
Peace & Love

When nuclear submarines plan to dock at the local naval base, young peace protesters from Durham University clash with the police. The next morning, the demonstrators’ fiery leader, faculty member Fraser Barratt, turns up dead at the dockside. The investigation takes Gently and Bacchus to the campus, where big changes are blowin’ in the wind—and the social, political, and sexual tumult brings little peace.

Haven't actually watched it yet, I live in China now and realized that I never did buy this series. I love the series though, I am from the north of England. Can't ever beat British TV!

Entertaining, Keeps One guessing until the end

American defective stories don't hold a candle to this one. The interplay between the main two characters, one ambitious and a little free with morality as opposed to Gently and his expectation that morality will be maintained adds depth to the story.
