"Facing what could be his final case, inspector George Gently is…"
Last time they said that, the ep ended in Durham Cathedral, with Inspector Lewis having shot Gently in the leg and arm and Bacchus in the stomach.
This does not fill with me confidence.
Poll: who’s your favourite Miss Marple?
I think I’ve got the main lot in order of adaptation…
- Margaret Rutherford
- Angela Lansbury
- Joan Hickson
- Geraldine McEwan
- Julia McKenzie.
I love Geraldine McEwan’s Miss Marple
She is so bird-like and sharp-eyed and sometimes a bit scary
And always a bit strange, a bit quirky
‘There are many difficulties inherent in a teleological view of creation,’ said Parker placidly."

#if you gathered together all the british detectives
#lord peter wimsey would stroll in 25 minutes late with starbucks
#and everyone else would be like who the cuss is this
#basically wimsey is the anti detective and it’s great and this book is a gem
You’re most definitely not bothering me, especially not since you asked about George Gently. ♥
I’ve talked about this with the gf because we’re both big fans, and these are our top 5 eps:
Gently Upside Down (4x01)
Gently with the Innocents (2x01)
Gently Northern Soul (5x01)
Gently in the Cathedral (5x04)
Gently Between the Lines (6x01)
There’s episode descriptions at wikipedia but all of these eps have lots of character development and fleshed out background characters and contemporary relevance. It’s just good telly beyond the crime angle.
