'George Gently: Series 6' Blu-ray Detailed

Posted Wed Feb 26, 2014 at 10:00 AM PST by

Four more episodes of the British mystery series are heading to Blu-ray in April. You can pre-order the show now.

In an early announcement to retailers, Acorn Media is preparing 'George Gently: Series 6' for Blu-ray on April 1.

Detective Chief Inspector George Gently (Martin Shaw, 'Death in Holy Orders') returns to the job six months after he and his sergeant, John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby, 'Place of Execution'), were gravely injured in the line of duty. Both officers appear to be on the mend, physically at least. But while Gently is intent on putting the incident behind him, Bacchus clearly is not—and shocks his boss by submitting a letter of resignation. At a time of changing attitudes and values in Britain, Gently and Bacchus are undergoing transitions of their own. In these four new episodes set in 1969, Bacchus lets a new constable's (Lisa McGrillis, 'Hebburn') modern ways of policing get under his skin, while an aging Gently finds himself more and more adrift in a rapidly evolving world. Guest stars include Jemma Redgrave ('Bramwell') and Robert Pugh ('Game of Thrones').

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes; Text Interviews with the Cast; 1969 Facts; and Photo Gallery.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $59.99.
