Product Description


The premise of New Tricks is irresistible: A career-driven British detective hits a career speedbump and is put in charge of a new cold-case division that she thinks is way out of the spotlight. And if that isn't bad enough, she must build a staff from a raggedy crew of retired cops with loads of time on their hands--as well as, it turns out, some pretty great detective skills they're dying to use again.Supervising the oddball group is the former hotshot Det. Supt. Sandra Pullman (played by Amanda Redman with refreshing world-weariness that gives homage to Helen Mirren's great performance in Prime Suspect), who feels sidelined, and thus frustrated, in this latest assignment. Yet the viewer knows Pullman is perfectionist enough to give this Siberia gig her all, even if her work methods differ wildly from those on her team.

Recruited out of various stages of retirement are the deeply gifted English character actors James Bolam (playing recent widower Jack Halford), Alun Armstrong (terrific as the obsessive-compulsive Brian Lane, who left the force after a nervous breakdown), and Dennis Waterman (a former sergeant and hothead who likes his liquor and isn't at all sure about having a lady boss). New Tricks is part police procedural--with a deliciously long running time of 90 minutes per episode--as well as a humorous work dramedy. When Pullman pulls a pile of photos of retired cops from whom to begin to build her team, her first teammate, Halford, grabs the pile to help speed along the process. "Dead, dead, dead, dead, good as, dead…" he says as he winnows down the stack. Yet the "old fart" jokes are few and far between, as it soon becomes clear that the old dogs really can learn, and employ, New Tricks and make dramatic, if sometimes politically dangerous, headway into high profile cases assumed to be long closed. Or are they? Fans of any crime procedural will love New Tricks, as will fans of the far more realistic British TV series that dare to show stars with imperfect teeth or well-worn shoe soles. And yet that realism is part of the utter believability, and totally-grow-on-you charm of New Tricks. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars Old Dogs, New Tricks June 13 2010
By Dave and Joe TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This may be the best new mystery series to come along in years. It's fast, it's funny and it's impossible not to love all the characters involved. They wisely concentrate on the MYSTERY rather than the personal lives of the characters, but with each episode you get to know more about each person on the team. Brilliant writing along with stunning performances ... I'd pay to see these in the theatre. Have fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BRITS DO IT BEST !!! Jan. 19 2012
By S.L.S
When it comes to series tv,the Brits are unrivaled.
I only found out about this series last year.
I fell in love with the characters instantly.
That's what makes this series such a hit,they do
in depth charcter studies.You really learn what
makes the characters behave the way they do.
The others reviews will tell you about the series.
I will tell you how to save a large bundle of money
if you want to buy this series.
I discounted using Amazon .CA for 2 reasons.
1) there shipping comes by covered wagon.Meaning
it takes forever to get a product mailed using
standard shipping.
2)there prices for each of this series is highway
I checked out Amazon.com and found there prices much better.
I then checked out Amazon .UK and it blew me away.
The difference between ordering all the series(1-8)
from Amazon UK v.s Amazon Com was DOUBLE the savings.
More than enough of a savings to buy a region free dvd player !!!
Plus Amazon .com doesn't have series 8 available at this time.
Yes I am taking into consideration the difference between the
pound and the Cdn dollar.Also,I got the order in 4 days !!!
The picture quality on the dvd's is great and it's in full screen.
Just a couple of asides:
Dennis Waterman who plays Gerry Standing sings the theme song that
you here at the beginning and end of each show.His real life daughter
plays his daughter ( a detective ) in one of the shows.
The wife of Brian Lane,played by Alun Armstrong is actually the
real life wife of Jack Halford,played James Bolam.
I highly reccommend that you buy the series starting with
series # 1 first.It really gives a full understanding of
the characters.Besides the first show is hysterically funny.

This is a smart, sassy, wry, police procedure with a twist in that the special squad are all older, retired men headed by a strong, attractive policewoman trying to retrieve her career after a past mistake. They handle old unsolved or questionable cases. The joy is in the quirky characters, their interaction, the dialogue, and the well structured stories. The setting is just a few years ago, but here's nothing too distracting in this. In the league of "Inspector Frost", I've seen it twice now and could do so again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good delivery, damaged product Jan. 2 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this for a Christmas present. It took until New Year's Eve to crack it open. The first DVD, containing the pilot was a fail. I haven't yet begun the "return/replace" process. I hope it goes well. BTW, the 2nd DVD is working fine and the shows, though not as polished as what are being broadcast now are a lot of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Tricks Nov. 25 2012
By Tessa
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great series. I love the way the characters play off each other. The aging process is a difficult one, and this series helps us to laugh and them and ourselves, while solving crimes that are less graphic than many other series.
It's so great to discover something we like and can look forward to another 8 seasons. Hope there is more after this.
