(NASDAQ: RLJE) brand. Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly) returns as Dr. Martin Ellingham in the eighth series of this smash-hit British comedy.

The DVD and Blu-ray 3-Disc Sets feature 8 episodes, plus a bonus disc with behind-the-scenes featurettes and interviews ($39.99, Amazon.com).

After all their ups and downs as a couple, Dr. Martin Ellingham and his wife, Louisa (Caroline Catz, Murder in Suburbia), are finally living together with their son, James Henry, but their problems are far from over. With Louisa’s encouragement, James Henry has grown attached to Buddy the dog, but Martin is disgusted by the four-legged friend. In need of a new nanny, Louisa finds herself juggling too many responsibilities and considers switching careers, causing a rift with Martin.

Meanwhile, Portwenn is abuzz as the residents prepare for a wedding. The Larges hope to profit from the festivities, but when Martin’s aunt Ruth (Emmy® winner Eileen Atkins, Cranford) considers selling the family farm, her decision causes trouble for their business endeavors. As some relationships bloom and others falter, can Martin cope with all the changes—or will he risk the fragile accord he’s forged with his family?

It’s 1970, the start of a new decade. Radical social and political change is in the air, and Gently is on the brink of retirement. Tasked with investigating two last homicides, Gently finds himself at odds with his cocky protégé, DI John Bacchus (Ingleby) and questioning the legacy he will leave behind. When a victim’s body is discovered eight years after his wife was convicted of killing him, Gently reopens the case against the wishes of Bacchus, who was part of the original investigation. Later, a cold case leads Gently to suspect a charismatic politician billed as a future prime minister. Along with DS Rachel Coles (McGrillis), Gently and Bacchus must enter a shadowy world of political intrigue and risk everything—even their own lives—to uncover the truth.
