Retired cops solve cold cases in this hit British series

At the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad, three former detectives and their lovely, ambitious boss (Amanda Redman, Sexy Beast) tackle cases abandoned by the Metropolitan Police. Although their crime-solving skills are top-notch, the detectives each have their fair share of personal demons. Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman, The Sweeney) is a womanizer, Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong, Garrow’s Law) is depressed, and Jack Halford (James Bolam, The Beiderbecke Affair) is mourning the death of his wife. Can this curmudgeonly trio of crime busters learn new tricks to crack tough crimes?

Seen on public television, this long-running, award-winning British series features a brilliant cast, top guest stars, deft writing, and an irresistible blend of compelling drama and dry humor. This collection contains Seasons 1-5 of “one of the BBC’s best-loved dramas” (Daily Mail, U.K.).

Due to music rights, Seasons 1 and 3 have been modified for home video presentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A top TV cop/drama lasting a decade, still going December 29, 2013
Recommended as a fun sophisticated crime series balanced with fast wit.
Set 1-5 series is a value. Top show-low price. 39 episodes! Do the math.
5-year set is PERFECT for those who already purchased many of the annual series later. 1-5 lets collectors/fans catch upon the early years without a lot of repeat buying.

As strong a cop/humor show as ever. Since 2003, this fast-pace old-guy investigation team is led by buxom blonde DS Pullman (Amanda Redman- `Little Dorrit'). They are handed cases from the past, unsolvable, but now new evidence suggests this UCOS, Unsolved Crimes & Open Case team can get the job done right. Not without few mess-ups along the way, plus plenty of humor mingled with suspense. The episodes are now filled with many guest stars; a few are noted in the episode synopsis below. No end in sight for this great BBC small screen hit. Seasons continue.

One-liners and humorous expressions roll faster than finding clues in this fast-paced but retirement age police team. This team's personalities & relationships make this award-winning fun. Pullman tough, realistically slightly overweight, but yet sexy. Brian (Alun Armstrong-Garrow's Law: Series One) is an old alcoholic, tech nerd with a photographic memory. Jack (James Bolam-The 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine comedy/police procedural in the British fashion January 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
I discovered this series when traveling in the UK, and am pleased that is now available in the U.S. The series involves a group of unwillingly retired police detectives, who are brought back to look into old, unsolved cases. They are under the leadership of a once rising police officer, whose career has been derailed by a rather horrible misstep. It is great fun to watch the characters past unfold from episode to episode. I look forward to watching every episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Tricks Collection, Seasons 1-5 December 15, 2013

The best 'cop' show ever! While I get a bit tired of Brian's mental antics, the show as a whole is marvelous. Great cast, wonderful directing and really good plots without gore, over-done sex scenes or the 'f' word. Refreshing!

The cast is excellent. Great premise. I am up to season 3 and really enjoy the show. I can see why it has been on as many seasons as it has.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic all the way around September 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
Fantastic all the way around. Started watching on PBS, no idea what season it was. Enjoyed so much I got the 1 to 5 Collection and started watching on weekends. I'm tending to watch the 3 episodes on 1 or 2 dvds then replaying to catch any of the little puns/plot intracacies I've missed. After the first 3 episodes I ordered all the rest available individually. Sort of sorry I've read updates on the internet about Amanda Redman and Alum Armstrong leaving after the 10th season. Since a large part of the appeal for me is how everyone interacts it will take some super writing and chemistry to mesh another team.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love it June 26, 2014

We started watching "New Tricks" on PBS, and we love the series. We ordered the Seasons 1-5 Collection, and watch a new episode every evening. The first episode is a gem! We highly recommend this item, especially for anyone feeling a bit older. In this series, older is better!
