RETIRED COPS SOLVE COLD CASES IN THIS HIT BRITISH SERIES

In this wildly popular crime series, aging cops and traditional sleuthing trump high-tech gadgets and modern criminology. James Bolam (The Beiderbecke Affair), Alun Armstrong (Garrow’s Law), and Dennis Waterman (The Sweeney) star as three detectives pulled out of retirement to unravel cases that stumped the Metropolitan Police. Their beautiful boss, Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman, Sexy Beast), keeps them on track and mostly out of trouble as they follow their hunches and bend the rules.

Strong writing, ample humor, and a splendid cast have made this one of the most-watched shows on British television. This time around, the team has its hands full with unsolved murders, an 18-year-old abduction, and a 30-year-old robbery that threatens the team’s very existence. Guest stars include Rupert Graves (Death at a Funeral), Paul Rhys (Chaplin), Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey), and Siân Phillips (I, Claudius).

Episode 1 Dark Chocolate - After a recent rape is linked to two unsolved attacks at a chocolate factory, the team examines all three cases and discovers even more dark secrets. Meanwhile, Gerry enlists Sandra’s help to quit smoking.

Episode 2 Good Morning Lemmings - Celebrated graffiti artist Danny “Flak” Tyler was murdered four years ago. So why is “I Killed Flak” graffiti suddenly appearing around London? While the team focuses on Flak’s former crew members, Brian’s obsession with Twitter proves distracting.

Episode 3 It Smells of Books - Brian goes undercover at the London Library, his “spiritual home,” to learn what really happened to a cold case victim. When university professor and book lover Richard Symes fell off the roof of his college, was it suicide or murder?

Episode 4 Coming Out Ball - The 1983 abduction of an 18-year-old debutante is a very cold case that just got warmer. A former member of the Irish Republican Front has come forward with new information. Can Sandra and her team learn the truth?

Episode 5 Dead Man Talking - When a psychic tells a dead man’s daughter that her father left unfinished business, the team reinvestigates the death of a wealthy financier. Sandra is convinced the psychic is a fraud—until he reveals a conflict involving her own late father.

Episode 6 Fashion Victim - Eight years prior, fashion designer Ritchie Levene was stabbed to death. There were plenty of suspects, but no evidence. On the eve of a retrospective exhibition of Levene’s work, the team takes another look at the crime.

Episode 7 Left Field - Soon after being released from jail, pedophile John Davies confesses to abducting and killing a 5-year-old boy 25 years earlier. Suspicious of Davies’s motives, the team reopens the case—to prove his innocence, not his guilt.

Episode 8 Gloves Off - A talented young boxer was shot and killed 15 years ago, but the case stalled when the murder weapon was never found. Now that the gun has surfaced, the team reopens the case and learns more than they want to know about professional boxing.

Episode 9 Where There's Smoke - When the team receives new information about a fatal fire, they are drawn into a dangerous criminal underworld. The original investigation was blocked by a wall of silence, which may be crumbling—if a witness can be trusted.

Episode 10 The Fourth Man - DI Frank Paterson joins the team to reinvestigate a 30-year-old armed robbery during which ₤10 million were stolen and two guards killed. Paterson’s belief that new evidence points to high-level police corruption puts Sandra’s team in jeopardy.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Tricks Series in DVD March 13 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I chose New Tricks Season Seven because I had watched a few of the First Season on TV and became a fan.
It is a story of intrigue, an interest in unsolved cases within the British Police Force, and enlightenment on the workings of the UCOS and their energetic working on the cases. There is the comraderie of the characters with their dedicated work ethics and some comedy mixed in that lightens the story and brings it into everyday life.
A great show that I would recommend to everyone who enjoys mysteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great BBC Series July 7 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The series of "New Tricks" is a wonderful, funny police show that has something different in each episode. The characters are certainly not what you expect in a typical police employees. If you like murder mystery/comedy/drama all mixed in one, this is the series you should try. BBC keeps coming up with the best, in my opinion. We have watched it in order, starting with Series One and eagerly await each new season as it is released. According to PR releases, the show will continue to be made until at least 2014!

I buy these seasons for a relative, and, although I'm not a "fan" of this type of show, I must admit even I like New Tricks 1 through 7.

The scenery can be very nice, the writing is strong, the actors are first-rate, the stories tend to be interesting and thought-provoking, and the chemistry between the actors (even in New Tricks 1) is undeniably good. The humour is often subtle but right on track.

This series shows that cops don't have to be twenty-something to be good at their jobs or to make a difference. This is true in real life, so I like that this truth has permeated into the fictional realm in New Tricks 1 through 7.

Amanda Redman plays Sandra Pullman, a cop whose job it is to head a group of misfits who, although older, prove age isn't always a sign of maturity. These over-50's bring experience to their police work, but they also sometimes bicker and whine amongst themselves, try to find where they fit in in the world -- not being young, but not being elderly -- with issues from grandchildren to dating (including dating younger people); virility and self-confidence on a first date to loss of a long-time spouse.

I tend to forget age and become involved in the story, and then remember these characters (and actors) aren't in their 20's or 30's or 40's as they chase a suspect, for example, and start wheezing and gasping after half a block! But they don't have to be in top physical form, because they have the sense to listen to their gut and know a suspect is guilty the first moment they meet them, rather than spending days or weeks agonizing over whether or not to trust their instincts.

If you're looking for an enjoyable, quiet bit of entertainment, give New Tricks a try. If you're in the mood for foul language, huge explosions, car chases, nudity, gratuitious sex, or shoot 'em ups (and I for one am sometimes in the mood for these things!) then New Tricks isn't for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sleuthing but the personal touch is gone. June 11 2012
By C. L. Kingsley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love New Tricks. I practically do a count down on my calendar waiting for the next season's DVD to come out, so of course I began watching it within hours of Season 7's arrival from Amazon last weekend. I haven't seen the last two episodes yet. But as much as I enjoy the great acting and the camaraderie between the four main characters, the key ingredient for me is missing this time around. We still get to see Brian's home life with Esther but nothing much out of the office for the other three. No family problems for Jerry nor any cooking, and evidently Jack isn't discussing his cases with Mary any more. There is a small smackerel of something for Sandra, which satisfies an itch from Season 6, but we never see her at home. And I can't reconcile the rooms in Brian's house with what they looked like last season. They've had the decorators in and the rooms look larger than they did before.

Which leaves me feeling as if old and dear friends have suddenly stopped inviting me into their homes. Still solving cases brilliantly, still having fun in the office -- but I miss the intimacy.

Every season has had one episode that I watch over and over. My all-time favorite is the one when Esther cuts her hand and Jerry cooks that gourmet dinner for her. In fact any time Jerry heads into a kitchen makes me happy. I hope Season 8 will go back to those informal moments. I haven't found an episode that I want to watch from start to finish twice in a row in Season 7. New Tricks: Season 7.

5.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY SENIOR CRIME FIGHTING FORCE HIT THAT KEEPS TICKING April 2 2012
By Harold Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Unsolved murders, psychic sleuth, past abduction, arson, & bank robbery cold by 3 decades tough for the team ego. Buckets of guest stars including a bevy of beauties. 10 episodes, filled with one-liners. Humorous expressions roll faster than clues in this fast-paced but retirement age police team.
..........Cast: DS Pullman (Amanda Redman-`Little Dorrit') guides 3 ex-cops on unsolved crime & open cases (UCOS). This team's personalities & relationships make this award-winning fun. Pullman tough, realistically slightly overweight, but yet sexy. Brian (Alun Armstrong-`Garrows Law') is an old alcoholic, tech nerd with a photographic memory. Jack (James Bolam-`Beiderbecke Tapes') a widower of a murdered spouse, & Gerry (Dennis Waterman-`Sweeney') aging playboy. DAC Strickland (Anthony Calf-`Upstairs Downstairs') is their often antagonistic boss. And we must mention Brian's wife Esther (Susan Jameson-`The Queen' and voice for Catherine Cookson audios). Expect first name familiarity in New Tricks, like in a family series. They are a cop family. Episodes always have a difficult past crime, plus personal issues of the UCOS team. You will laugh through the sleuthing efforts. You'll see many guest stars.

SDH SUBTITLES for almost 10 hrs. UCOS-Unsolved Crime & Open Case Squad
............BONUS: Behind-the-scenes featurette * Bloopers
Episodes in DVD order; 1: Dark Chocolate
A cake maker rape. Chocolate factory head (Neil Stuke -Reggie Perrin) is suspect. That's not dark chocolate on those bodies, its sweetless sweat. More dark secrets. Can Gerry go smokeless?

2: Good Morning Lemmings
Graffiti claiming "I killed Flak" sprays London. Dad Flak by Chris Barnes (Horatio Hornblower) It's a 4-year-old dead case. Why now? Former taggers checked. Brian Twitters disturbingly.

3: It Smells of Books
Brian says libraries `smell...hold wierdos," but loves em & goes undercover. Library pals played by Anne Reid and David Ryall. But a man's roof dive after checking out a stack of books seems a crime, not suicide. A plot?

4: Coming Out Ball
Debutante abduction heats. An Irish Republican Frontist (Ian McKlhinney -Little Dorrit) has new info for Sandra & team. Sian Phillips plays Lady Elizabeth. And I enjoyed Amy (Sophie Ward -Land Girls) a good bit + Ms Jones (Annette Crosbie -One Foot in the Grave). Sandra's school reunion.

5: Dead Man Talking
Psychic (Paul Rhys- The Queen, Bonekickers) says a dead daughter's dad's not done. Is the clairvoyant a fraud--as Sandra thinks? Eldridge (Jo Stone-Fewings) a blood relative? Beswick is David Bradley (H. Potter).

6: Fashion Victim
Eight yrs past designer Levene stabbed. Bolts of suspects: brother (Rupert Graves -Garrow's Law, Forsyte Saga), Beck (Peter Wight -Titanic), sexy PA (Tuppence Middleton.) Gerry's real-life daughter is back (Hannah Waterman).

7: Left Field
Pedophile Davies (Adrian Schiller -Going Postal) confesses abducting and killing a quarter century earlier. Case reopened to prove his innocence. Different! Watch for Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey, The Queen, Lark Rise to Candleford)

8: Gloves Off
Boxer (James Grogan) shot ages ago Never a weapon-`til now. Learn about professional boxing-if you dare. Also see Matthew Marsh (Iron Lady), Maggie O'Neill (Shameless), Del Synnott (Murphy's Law), and more.

9: Where There's Smoke
Drink club fatal fire, goes underworld. Old silence finds a speaking witness. Trustworthy? Seems more smoke than fire. Brian fires up his arson skills.

10: The Fourth Man
DI Paterson (Phil Daniels- Chicken Run) investigates a 3-decade past robbery of £10 million & 2 killed. Evidence may point to copper corruption. John Shrapnell (Notting Hill, Elizabeth: Golden Age, Troy) plays a bad guy here. Is UCOS in jeopardy? Auto forensics.
A great dialogue line referring to the 3 retired cop guys: "Nurse. They're out of their beds again."

2.0 out of 5 stars Looked Tired; Felt Redundant June 18 2012
By G. Teslovich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Something (well, a lot of things) is missing from what I thought was the peak of interesting storytelling and spontaneous natural acting between seasons three and five.
First season was a little rough especially the not-so-imaginative case scripts with unnaturally quick final minutes' resolutions/confessions and actors still becoming comfortable with each other. But, each season improved with good repartee, wit and humorous exchanges amongst our castoff crime squad; even the stories improved in intelligent sleuthing, topical social backdrops and unusual crimes but this season seemed like we have fallen way back to rote non-imaginative scripts; rushed predictable endings and most importantly I found barely 3 chuckles worth of witty exchange in all ten episodes. The actors looked tired and almost disinterested as if they were just going through routine acting motions. Perhaps it's a result of a change in some of the directors and writers these past couple of years or perhaps the writers and directors have lost that creative, "spontaneity" drive?
The cinematography/editing is rather poorly performed such as constant face switching; zooming; poor framing of scenes.
The show needs to add some energetic fresh face to liven things up. And, the actors could use a wilderness retreat or something similar to get fit and regain a mental zest and focus. Even the guest actors seem to be type cast and scripted the same way year after year and episode after episode.

Like the story lines, like British humor, recommend it to those that are tired of the "Halloween TV" that has taken over American television.
