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 SiÃ¢n 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.

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.
New Tricks: Season 1
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.
