 (TV) (2012)

George Gently, Series 5 Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In the fifth series of this British police drama set in Northeast England in the 1960s, an old London case of Chief Inspector Gently's resurfaces, with dire consequences.

For more about George Gently, Series 5 and the George Gently, Series 5 Blu-ray release, see George Gently, Series 5 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Martin Shaw, Lee Ingleby, Simon Hubbard, Melanie Clark Pullen

George Gently, Series 5 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Acorn Media has changed their approach to video encoding with the most recent releases of George Gently. Previous releases (that is, Series 1, 3 and 4) have been issued with two episodes per disc (each episode is approximately 90 minutes long) on BD-50s. Series 2 and 5, which are being released simultaneously, have the same amount of content per disc, but the discs are BD-25s. Acorn has achieved excellent images with their releases of Midsomer Murders using this arrangement, and they apparently have decided to try the same approach with George Gently.

Does it work? For Series 5, yes—but only because Series 5 is the first series of George Gently to be encoded at 1080p. At 1080p, using the AVC codec, the digitally acquired episodes of George Gently are able to withstand this level of compression without acquiring noise or other artifacts. The image for Series 5 retains the same sharp level of detail and clean focus that is evident on the previously released episodes. Black levels are solid and true, which is essential for Gently's consistently muted color palette. (For flashbacks, colors become slightly more saturated.) One has to wonder why Acorn, which charges a premium price for what is supposed to be a premium product, is cutting corners with disc capacity, but in Series 5 of George Gently, they have managed to get away with it.

Series 2 is another matter, but I will address that in a separate review.


George Gently, Series 5 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Having previously encoded George Gently's audio as PCM, Acorn Media has now switched to DTS-HD MA 2.0. From the listener's point of view, the difference in lossless formats is moot, because the track continues to provide the same basic and functional mix, emphasizing dialogue and essential effects. As on previous episodes, there is a general sense of environmental ambiance, but otherwise nothing special from the surrounds and no major work for a subwoofer. Philip Appleby (A Most Mysterious Murder) scored "Gentley Northern Soul" and "Gently with Class", while John E. Keane (Tales of the City) scored "The Lost Child" and "Gently in the Cathedral".
