For Detective Chief Inspector George Gently (Martin Shaw, Death in Holy Orders), the world is changing at a dizzying paceâ€”economically, politically, socially, culturally. As the 1960s draw to a close and a new era beckons, he feels more and more estranged and ill-equipped to cope. But for Gently and his fellow officers, one thing remains constant in their northeast England beat: violent crime. In four all-new, feature-length episodes, Gently is again assisted in his crime-fighting duties by Detective Sergeant John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby, Place of Execution), who is up for promotion to inspector, and Constable Rachel Coles (Lisa McGrillis, Hebburn), who is preparing to take her sergeants exam. While Gently and Bacchus collaborate as usual in their investigations, both are harboring secrets from each other that threaten to bring their professional careers to an end. Compelling mysteries and superb performances continue to make this â€œone of the most successful detective dramas on British televisionâ€ (Daily Express Saturday Magazine, UK).

The one-and-only Andy Griffith stars in Matlock: The Complete Series. Both in the courtroom and out, no one matches the quick wit, Southern charm and killer instincts of legendary attorney Ben Matlock. This collection of all 178 episodes showcases the mysteries that made Matlock a television classic. Helping the masterful lawyer solve his most intriguing cases over the years are a crew of clever colleagues, including daughter Leanne (Brynn Thayer), Conrad McMasters (Clarence Gilyard, Jr.), P.I. Cliff Lewis (Daniel Roebuck) and P.I. Jerri Stone (Carol Huston). Over nine seasons, riveting story lines and A-list guest stars prove that Matlock can captivate juries and audiences alike.
Multi-award-winner Brenda Blethyn (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement) plays the maverick but brilliant Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope in this mystery series based on Ann Cleevesâ€™s bestselling crime fiction. From the streets of Newcastle to remote rural Northumberland, Stanhope tackles cases as diverse and wild as their settings: a deadly blaze at a vacation park on the windswept North Sea coast, the 30-year-old disappearance of a schoolgirl from a mining town, a corpse decomposing in a farmâ€™s slurry tank, and the suspicious death of a family man in a multistory parking lot. As rumpled and caustic as ever, DCI Stanhope contends with a new assistant in Set 5. Detective Sergeant Aiden Healy (Kenny Doughty, Stella, Snowpiercer) is still recovering from an on-the-job trauma, but Vera shows little patience for his psychological scars. If their partnership is to work, Healy will quickly have to get accustomed to the sometimes unconventional methods his boss employsâ€”to unearth the truth, crack a case, and catch a killer.
