Purchased this after enjoying Foyle's War and other PBS mystery series. Entertaining, good character development. As with other PBS series, plenty of atmosphere and striking settings.

I ordered George Gently, Series 5 because of having seen it on PBS. You sent a version for International Region 3 that cannot be used in the U.S. YOU NEED TO BE MORE CAREFUL WHEN YOU ORDER DVDS FROM YOUR SUPPLIERS.

My attraction to British TV has always been because they seem to think when they write a script. Yes, there is crime mystery and surprises but there is always great character developement. In others words, a story and characters you care about . I can go on and on about all the great ones, but suffice it to say; Geprge Gentlyis up there with the best of the,

The best yet!!

Interesting and enjoyable, held my interest. I enjoy mysteries that take place in specific periods,i.e. the 60s 13th century, etc. Would really like to find the series Bergerac with early John Nettles. Any chance of seeing it soon?

Fantastic

If you liked the other George Gently series' you will like this one. There is one story, however, in this series that is not my cup of tea and the poignant ending of the last story was a real tear-jerker...but totally fitting. Thumbs up to Martin Shaw and Lee Ingleby once again!

I have followed the series about George Gently and really love the performances of the two leading actors...the irritating John Bacchus played by Lee Ingleby and the wonderful George portrayed by Martin Shaw. This series is the best yet. There are twists and turns that will ultimately surprise you with a new ending. This is the best series yet. I hope they continue with Series 6.
