Editorial Reviews

The second season of the BBC's comic whodunit, New Tricks, arrives on DVD 1/19! They might not look like a team of crack detectives, but once veteran coppers Lane, Standing, Halford, and their bullish boss Pullman get their (false) teeth into their cold cases, things heat up pretty quickly. With old-school detective work and a little state-of-the-art forensics, the veterans unearth a range of baffling crimes including the murder of a lawyer, a racially motivated attack on an Asian bride, and a mysterious unidentified human torso. Will they succeed where others have failed? Or will the burden of all the years begin to weigh down on them? After all, we all have to grow old sometime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldies but goodies provide a good romp February 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My husband and I really enjoyed season one and preordered season two on Amazon. We were not disappointed and as a matter of fact, found this series even better than the first. A female police officer has been disgraced and sent to run a cold case unit. She is able to bring on board some retired police detectives to help her as consultants. The batch she is finally able to persuade to join her are some very quirky former and now retired coppers. The chemistry between the actors is very good and the mysteries are well plotted. This is a 'light' set of mysteries. The second season allows for further character development which only increases the viewer's pleasure. This series is highly recommended.
****We are hoping that BBC will soon release the other seasons on dvd.****

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Run-of-the-Mill Cop Show December 14, 2009
Format:DVD
Unlike many police procedurals, this series has managed to incorporate both the investigative and human factors without deteriorating into a soap opera. Great cast, good plots, enjoyable shows all the way around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining British series February 12, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best comeday/drama series to come out of Britain. I have seen several episodes on PBS but there is nothing like having the DVDs to watch at your leisure. Great actors, great writing and excellent stories make for an entertaining hour of TV. The show has a serious side but the focus is on the very subtle comedy this four people convey on screen. There is a very good chemistry among the characters and they are all unique. The ladies man, the neurotic, the wise old "leader" and the excellent Detective Superintendetn Pullman. If you are a fan of British comedies or light police procedurals then you will love this series. I just wish the DVDs were released more quickly to the USA. Great show.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than 5 stars - hilarious and absorbing June 21, 2010
Format:DVD
Cold cases are treated seriously by 3 talented, albeit unique, detectives. Each episode has a different type of crime, always solved in a new, unexpected way. This, along with hilarious acting and writing, avoid boredom and bring American audiences a more sophisticated and entertaining crime dramedy. I'm American and love Law & Order and The Closer, but I really treasure New Tricks. The actors are such quality actors - you never feel an episode is drawn out or boring - they end all too quickly. I can't stop chuckling at seeing all four of them (supervisor included) on their hands and knees, searching for the curse jar to retrieve their booty, with a door opening behind Jerry and shoving him fully onto the floor with a muttered expletive. Hysterical - you never feel you're watching actors. In this series we also gain more insight into the officers' personal lives, adding another serious and sometimes funny dimension to the series.

I'm eagerly awaiting Seasons 3-6 on DVD here in the US like they are in the UK. Highly recommend this series for the quality acting, superb writing, and hilarious antics that endear the characters into the hearts of their viewers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where are next seasons in USA DVD format? April 29, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great series. Witty, quick, great characters, intricate mysteries.

Haven't a clue why future seasons are taking so long to produce in USA format. Encourages knockoffs.

Get on with it, BBC contractor!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Entertainment Well Paced and Well Acted November 26, 2011
Format:DVD
In Season Two we begin to see the characters, Sandra, played by Amanda Redman, Gerry, played by Dennis Waterman, Brian, played by Alun Armstrong, and Jack, played by James Bolam, beginning to develop into the characters they'll become later on. Some of the exploration of just who the characters will be is past and the characterizations are stabilizing. It was very obvious in Season 1 that the cast would be going through a period of character refinement.

I was introduced to this series watching some of the much later shows and it has been interesting watching these seasoned actors refine their parts; they are really and truly good at what they do! We were interested to note that the theme song, "it's Alright," is actually sung by Dennis Waterman who plays the part of Gerry Standing. While on the subject of versatility I must mention Alun Armstrong's peerless performance as the Innkeeper in the 10th Anniversary Production of Les Miserables, what a talent!

The depth of experience these British actors bring to their roles always amazes me; this excellent series is the direct result of their rich talent and extensive experience in British theater.

I recommend this series enthusiastically!

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars These Dogs Can Hunt March 16, 2010
By Mycroft
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
New Tricks, the UCOS mystery/dramady makes each disc a delight. if you haven't met Jack, Brian and Jerry or the beautiful and talented Sandra, you've been living under a rock. The story begins as a tale of three pensioners called back into service to work unsolved cases and from there, fasten your seat belts its going to be a bumpy flight, or words to that effect. "Smilin'" Jack halford is the leader of the over-the hill gang, with Brian as the "book" and Jerry as the street smart grifter. Ho-hum, you say, I've seen all this before, no you haven't, not the way these vetrean actors do it. They keep the tale light, but oh my do the bodies fall. And in a pinch, DCI Sandra can throw a punch or slink about all tarted up and seduce the villian to his doom. She's nearly perfect...if you disreguard the shot dog thing... Come join the fun as Jack, Brian and Jerry run the streets of London and slove as many crimes as they commit while Sandra tries to decied whether to kill them or get them the George Cross. Great fun, you should buy season one and two at the same time, but if you must get season two and disconnect the phone, you won't answer it until the disk ends anyway.

So funny yet plenty of pathos. A great show for familiar (but elderly) UK TV actors. Will get the other series soon.
