The Shadows in The Lost Child?
What is that catchy Hank Marvin-sounding guitar tune about halfway through this episode when Gently and Bacchus go to the beach? Sounds sort of like Atlantis...

Phenomenal
This is so good and I love the rapport between the two detectives and the wpc adds to it. Gently's perception and John's pessimistic and sceptic nature and his amazing put downs make me chuckle. Brilliant!

Custody Suite
In last nights episode the term Custody Suite was used but I am sure that this was not introduced until the 1980s, but I am certain that it was not in use in 1969.

Handsome , Sexy & Talented
My favorite show. I love the story line and I'm crazy about Martin Shaw. Whoever said that Italian me are the sexiest men alive are bonkers! Give me a Brit any day! Of course you are hearing this from an American Anglophile.

Loving this Series So Much
I really thought Bacchus had turned on his Boss and joined the dark side when he lead statham and lawson to his ex's address, but in truth, he was stalling them. Bless your heart Bacchus.

The singer & the song
Ellen was played by Ebony Buckle, who is a actress and a talented musician (look her up on IMDB or Google) who undoubtedly did all her own singing. The first song she sang in the pub was "Matty Groves" which was originally made famous by Fairport Convention. I can't remember the name of the second song (the one which was more directly relevant to the plot) but it is an old folk standard which actually goes by a number of different names.

Cliff hanger
or what! I do know that Martin Shaw is up here in the North East filming the next series as we speak.

Gently in The Cathederal

Continuity errors....
Tonight... The prison has CCTV and modern light switches for a suspended illuminated ceiling.

Well done BBC
Thoroughly enjoyable Sunday night viewing. The song was,"Who knows where the time goes" by the late great Sandy Denny.
Fifties Kid 2:27pm Mon 10 Sep
 
   
poignant
it was sad that the troubled abandoned son was killed - but the storyline was accurate for the times. As for the flowers of course they were left in such circumstances even then!
doubletake 8:36am Mon 10 Sep
 
   
Flowers
No flowers would have been left at that time, that's a modern foible

1968
UPVC Double Glazing was all the rage back then...

The name of the song

Brenda M 10:29am Thu 6 Sep
 
   
Continuity Error
Anyone notice that the car winched out of the river didn't have a prop shaft?

Right winged Bias from the BBC
Why is the BBC so polictical on this show. I used to like Gently Gently but the bias is really getting to me. I would rather watch Claire Sweeney then this rubbish.

Singer
Does anyone know the name of the female singer as I suspect the actress with the violin was miming.

martin shaw is brilliant!

@ Tricia
You do realise George Gently is a MODERN production that happens to be SET in the sixties? And that by showing the attitudes that existed then, we can reflect upon how attitudes change over time?

Prev comm
You can't bury your head in your hands - its part of history to tell it as it was and learn from it.

A Racist program worth forgetting
The Olympics were fantastic and race relations have never been better so why drag out a really appalling racist programme from the 60s, lets move on!!
Tricia 5:36pm Wed 29 Aug
 
   
Brilliant
Brilliant writing, brilliant acting, brilliant story...did I say it was brilliant!! More please....
Rosie100 12:49pm Mon 27 Aug
 
   
Another good series
Gripping take on the 60's drama. Enjoy the rapport between the duo. "Lean on Me" at the end was icing on the cake. Sorry the prev comment missed out!
doubletake 11:49am Mon 27 Aug
 
   
Subtitles gone off-again!
once more a decent program and the subtitles disappeared half an hour into watching it. Usless if you're deaf.
Nan 9:06pm Sun 26 Aug
 
   
worth watching
Glad seen this episode again - good reflection of the 60's and despite earlier comment yes everyone around you did smoke - I know cos I was the odd one out. I enjoy the fact based no nonscence content rather than the hyped up dramatic modern detective series.

Sponsorship
Please tell me that Phillip Morris don't contribute to the making of this series. Barely a single scene without a fag! I was there in the 60's, and there really wasn't that much smoking!
Hate smoking 9:38am Mon 5 Sep
 
   
house of the rising sun
yes i would also like to know who sung this on this episode ..i cannot find out anywere if anyone finds out please post
breezer 1:24am Mon 5 Sep
 
   
Very Annoying
Why do we have to have the dreadful so-called 'music' in the background all the time, so loud and annoying and quite unnecessary.
