MORE NEW TRICKS!

MORE NEW TRICKS!

One of the most popular crime dramas in the UK is New Tricks, about a group of retired police detectives who reopen cold cases. Co-starring Dennis Waterman of Sweeny Fame, the series is one I’ve always wanted to view.

Word is now out that BBC has ordered two additional seasons (or ‘series’ as the term is applied in the UK) of New Tricks.


The 7th series of 8 episodes is expected to air in 2010, with the 8th in 2011. The most recent series aired during the summer of 2008.New Tricks stars Amanda Redman as Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman, who leads the office of the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad (UCOS), which is made up of retired police officers who have been recruited to reinvestigate unsolved crimes.

New Tricks began as a single episode that aired in March 2003. It was so popular BBC ordered an additional 6 episodes, which subsequently aired during the spring of 2004. These 7 episodes came out on DVD last month as New Tricks Series One.

Per the DVD description: A motley crew of retired police officers re-opens troublesome cases that were never laid to rest. From the discovery of a new motive in the killing of a college lecturer, to the tracing of a missing child, the team finds a way through the detail that eluded the original officers. But they are finding a surprising incidence of cover-up and conspiracy in their new investigations.


Are their superiors about to close ranks? Or is someone feeding them particular files? Either way, the suspicion that they are being manipulated is high -- and the team is determined to get to the bottom of it. These old dogs won't roll over too easily.
