RETIRED COPS SOLVE COLD CASES IN THIS HIT BRITISH SERIES

For eight years, the old dogs of the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad—veteran detectives Jack Halford (James Bolam, The Beiderbecke Affair), Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong, Garrow's Law), and Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman, The Sweeney)—have been a close-knit team. Led by Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman, Sexy Beast), their beautiful, younger boss, they have solved cold cases with classic policing skills and easy camaraderie. Then Jack drops a bombshell: he's quitting. Retiring. And this time, he means it.

Before long, Sandra finds a replacement in retired detective Steve McAndrew (Emmy® nominee Denis Lawson, Bleak House, Star Wars). A chatty, enthusiastic Scot, Steve treads on toes but gives the hit British series a "charm injection" (Huffington Post, U.K.). Season Nine guest stars include James Wilby (Island at War, Gosford Park), Sharon Small (The Inspector Lynley Mysteries), Kerry Fox (Cloudstreet), and Tim McInnerny (Blackadder) as intelligence agent Stephen Fisher.

As had been quite clearly flagged up at the end of the previous series, Series 9 included the first change of personnel amongst the four main characters since the show was launched in 2003, as Jack Halford retired from UCOS. However, he did appear in the first episode just to tidy up the circumstances of his departure.

We had to wait until Episode 4 to meet Jack's replacement, DI Steven McAndrew played by Denis Lawson. He is a hard headed Glaswegian who has been drafted in to help the team. McAndrew is completely different from Jack Halford, and I think the script writers made absolutely the right decision here and it would have been a mistake to try to clone Jack which would have resulted in the inevitable and constant comparisons.

Apparently James Bolam, who played Jack Halford, wanted to leave as he felt the show had become stale. I would beg to differ as the script writers have continued to come up with some very interesting and varied stories. For example one involves a murder which took place some 160 years ago - a real cold case! The team are as interested in the motives for wanting to solve it in after all this time, as the circumstances of the crime itself. Another is a contemporary case which is not a cold case at all and involves a body turning up in a morgue under a false name. To be fair though, the episodes were a bit more mixed than usual as far as quality went this time round and a couple were quite obscure.

There is a reasonable sprinkling of the private lives of Brian Lane and Gerry Standing, including a particularly hilarious session where Brian has aspirations for his dog to be a star of stage and screen! However, we learn little of the background of the new recruit until the last episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talk about addiction! November 14, 2012
Format:DVD
I'm almost through the second season of NEW TRICKS.
Unless the writers have had brain embolysms, I plan to go the full distance.
The casting is as good as it gets: you will be in love with the four characters within ten minutes into the pilot,
and will enjoy the working out of each character's charm and eccentricity, even more than the narratives themselves.
Character-driven is a useless term - "Hamlet, one of Shakespeare's most clearly character-driven plays" - but when the author is musified by his or her creations, the plot is the least of it. Character is all.

Applause to the writers, directors, and the exceptional cast. Every night, before my cats and dogs, I dance to NEW TRICKS' theme.

Being seventy-two, of course, helps!

3.0 out of 5 stars Show not stale....it has been stripped!!! March 17, 2013
Format:DVD
Several people including the actors have stated that the show has become stale. That is the reason James Bolam (Jack) stated for why he left this season. It is also the reason, posted throughout the internet, that Redman and others will be leaving after season 10.

The problem is not staleness (doing the same thing) but rather they got rid of any and everything that made this show fun. Gone are Jerry's wifes and kids, gone is Brian's dog and Esther barely makes an appearance every couple of shows. The show has the feel of a job (we've all been there) that has had a change of management and ever body now has to tow the company line.... no more fun, nor more excitement...let's get rid of all and any employee morale. Lawson's McAndrew replaced Jack in episode 4 (and except for a brief dinner with Esther) had little or no fanfare. Here was an opportunity for several episodes of him interacting with the team in various funny situations. Can you imagine McAndrew with Gerry's wifes...it would have been hilarious. But nothing happened.

Even the office has changed for the worse. At some point the open area surrounded by the three desks with Pullman's office to the side has been replaced with a cramped area filled with Hawaii 5.0 styled glass-illuminated tables and fancy side walls with data. The old-style stand-alone boards are gone. Remember the pilot with photographs falling from the board. Isn't this the premise of the show, ex-cops solving cold cases with their experience, using left-over equipment and nothing fancy.

The shows kept getting worse and worse. Don't get me wrong, if you like British procedural crime show, then keep watching, but if you want to watch a fun, charming show with quirky characters...this season is not it.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Tricks - Season 9 January 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
" New Tricks" is One of the best British mysteries on the market. I have enjoyed all nine seasons and hope there will be
more to come. The stories center around a police unit that deals with cold cases and unsolved crimes. It is staffed by three
retired , but very experienced detectives and headed by a younger, but mature woman who keeps everyone on their toes.
It is a very clever, witty and zany series and there is very often a surprise conclusion, adding extra suspense. The characters all have strong personalities and all have their particular brand of problems which adds to the various scenarios. The cast are seasoned actors and bring their many talents to the series. I can highly recommend "New Tricks" to anyone who like mystery and drama. The series also comes with closed captioning which is helpful as some of the British accents are hard to understand and thus catch the many subtleties presented in the dialogue.
