Retired cops solve cold cases in this hit British series

Three former detectives thought they were retired--until the lovely and persuasive superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman, Sexy Beast) recruited them to right the wrongs of the past. Now members of the unsolved crimes unit of the Metropolitan Police, they reinvestigate tough cases no one else can crack.

Their methods are old-fashioned, and they don’t care about the rules because they have little to lose. Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman, The Sweeney) is thrice divorced; Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong, Bleak House) is depressed; and Jack Halford (James Bolam, The Beiderbecke Affair) is mourning the death of his wife, killed by a hit-and-run driver. But their camaraderie is real and their skills are still sharp.

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.

On the cover, this group of detectives looks pretty hardcore. Yes, they are veteran detectives and take their jobs seriously, but you'd never guess the joking around that goes on behind those very serious faces. The crimes are serious, and the viewer is kept in suspense until the crime is solved, but we get to laugh along the way at all of their idiosynchrosies, the pranks, and the hard time they give each other. Every crime is a cold case, and they're all solved in a unique way - no boredom here. In fact, they use some imaginative techniques to get access to information. I'm in my thirties and highly prefer this program to The Closer and Law & Order, which can be very predictable. I've grown to really care about these characters, loving the top-notch writing and acting along the way. Can't wait until Season 7 is put onto DVD in the UK.

I've found this series so consistently entertaining through six series I decided to get Series One as a gift for a friend. I was amazed to find it's no longer offered on Amazon.com except as a "market place" item for the better part of $200. Went to the British Amazon (www.amazon.co.uk) and got it for $16.06 though, of course, it's a Region 2 DVD and won't play on most American (Region 1) players. It will, however, play on many computers.

Just to be sure my friend would have no problems with it, I also got her an inexpensive Region Free player for Christmas. These range in price from $50 to $80. Now, if she wants further episodes, she can get the Region 2's at the British Amazon where they're cheaper than their American counterparts. In addition she'll have access to a whole new variety of costume dramas, comedies, mysteries, sci-fi, etc. that's generally better written, better acted and more engaging than what's on American TV.

For any who may be interested but are anxious about currency conversion -- when you go through the "checkout", you can easily select to have your purchase displayed in US Dollars.

Update December 16, 2011:

Series 1-8 are now available at Amazon Uk. These are, of course Region 2's.

Format: DVD
A VERY LAUGH-OUT-LOUD set of stories. This show began in 2003 and has been on an upward spiral winning direction since. Season 4 is no exception. The show is based on a female cop DS Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman-`At Home with the Braithwaithes' 'Little Dorrit`) who runs the unsolved cases department from the basement due to a bad situation of her past. With no backup or budget, she recruits 3 ex-cops out of retirement. Pullman is blond, aggressive, a good-looker, likes cheap wine, with a wild private life, and bound to get the job done, one way or another. The 4 combine to solve the cold cases, but in such a funny way. Character study is magnificent in the writing of this show. It only gets better and better. It is still in production as of 2011. Will it last as long as Midsomer Murders, also yet continuing? It's as good.

The other quirky cops:
Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong-'Garrow's Law' 'Little Dorrit' 'Braveheart`) is over medicated with a great memory, and married to Esther (Susan Jameson-'When the Boat Comes In' & reader for many Catherine Cookson audio novels).
Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman-`The Sweeney' 'Stay Lucky`) is a womanizer divorced 3 times, is this a problem? Yes
Jack Halford (James Bolam-`Beiderbecke' 'Born & Bred' 'End of the Affair`) lost his wife and now talks to her regularly at the memorial in his back yard. She yet brings him comfort and investigative success.

Subtitles. Shows typically have a great guest star. British Brilliance in Murder Mystery Crime Catching.

We have have seen every season of New Tricks and love them. Great acting, all the actors not only can act, they have timing so that the humor is truly humorous - you don't need a laugh track to tip you off that something was said that is supposed to be funny. The writing is exceptional - I hate that so many U.S. shows (and now more and more U.K. programs corrupted by us) have simply godawful writing - hoping that talented actors can pull something out of a hat - you need both good writing and acting and if you want both, see each and every episode of New Tricks. Unreserved positive reviews for all seasons. Both my husband and I love them and never miss an episode on PBS.

I love the series, however I only have seasons one and two. Am unaware of there being more. I love the mystery of the series, love the comaradie between the team.

This may be the best TV series ever - in my opinion. If you have watched the prior three "series" of this show on DVD, then you know what I'm talking about and will immediately run out and get this set. Thanks to Acorn Media in the US, this volume (Series Four) is available in the US as NTSC format - it was released this month (June 2011). These were the episodes aired in the UK in 2008 but they don't seem dated at all.

If you found this set - and this review - without watching the earlier series, I highly recommend that you start with Series One and move forward. But you will catch up quickly. These episodes are like potato chips, you can't stop devouring them once you have started. (But these shows are healthier for you than those chips - or "crisps" if you are in the UK). Series One will get you started on the characters - Jack, Brian, Jerry and Sandra. They are the only ones you need to know and each has their own personality trait that makes them endearing to the viewer.

Now if you are a regular New Tricks junkie (like me) I'll make a few comments about this volume. I will not go into the plots of the episodes - they are detailed elsewhere, though I highly recommend that you don't read them in advance. Even when watching I skip the "plot outline" shown at the beginning. It's more fun to "let it happen".

While a few of the plots in this volume get a bit too confusing - I find it makes me play them again to see how the crime - usually a murder - took place. But these crimes are only there for the four lead actors to use their own unique personalities and expertise to work together. If there is an underlying theme here it is "teamwork works!:.
