Curtain comes down on BBC's police drama George Gently

By Julia Hunt

Police drama Inspector George Gently is coming to an end after 10 years.

The BBC1 series - starring Martin Shaw as the honourable Detective Chief Inspector and Lee Ingleby as Inspector Bacchus - will wrap with two feature-length films set in the North East.

Shaw (71), said it was wonderful to be returning for "a farewell that befits such a popular series".

The 1960s-set detective drama, which was created by Peter Flannery and originally based on the Gently novels by Alan Hunter, made its debut in 2007 and 23 episodes have aired.

Shaw said: "I'm excited at being able to bring the series to a proper finale, a farewell that befits such a popular series."
