Writer Peter Flannery teased last year: “As the 60s draw to a close the issues facing policing seem more relevant than ever. We’re looking at the way rape complaints are met by the police – and nothing much seems to have really changed there, except perhaps the terminology. And we’re looking for the first time in IGG at corporate crime, which seems to be always with us. In Films 1 and 2 Gently makes it a personal task to challenge both vested interests and the traditional ways of doing things – to his cost. As I’m sure Neil Armstrong MEANT to say: one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind’.”
