The eight season moves into the 1970s, with DCI George Gently facing retirement. In the opening episode Gently discovers the victim's wife was convicted of the murder eight years ago, he decides to re-open the case; a controversial move. But DI Bacchus opposes Gently's decision, not least because he worked as a DS on the original investigation and putting mentor and protégé at complete odds.

As mentioned before the Brits have some very good writers and actors.
I will really miss this series, wish there was more.

Rated 10/10. Two excellent finale episodes in this series brings this to a sad, but not unexpected close. Gently was never going to survive retirement.

The final scenes of the last episode somewhat rather (at least in my mind) give the viewer an impression that there could be room for a spinoff series based on George Gently, with the two remaining supporting actors. I could not find any evidence of that yet, at this point. Perhaps I'm wrong.

Either way, this series shows that the English have a definite flair for doing great shows.
