Reviews

A motley crew of retired police officers re-opens troublesome cases that were never laid to rest. Starring Alun Armstrong, James Bolam, Amanda Redman and Dennis Waterman, series two sees Lane, Standing, Halford and their bullish boss Pullman taking on more half-forgotten cases. Mixing nose-to-the-ground, old-school detective work with a fresh take on troublesome cases, the veterans investigate a range of unsolved crimes from the apparently racially motivated attack on a young Asian bride to the mystery of the unidentified torso found in a wood populated by wild boars. Will they succeed where others have failed? Or will the burden of all the years begin to weigh down on them? After all, they all have to grow old some time.

This is the best series on television incorporating clever stories combined with an excellent cast. They each carry a certain amount of personal baggage which makes them more endearing and they also make mistakes which makes them real. Congratulaions to all for this great series and to the BBC for airing it. (...)

The series is a wonderfully different take on forensic, cold case storylines. The interaction between the four actors that make up the team, is hilarious and at the same time, full of great tensions and xhemistry. The individual stories are original and often quirky. I'm glad that so far the BBC has not pulled the series, which they tend to do with the better series they produce, but it would be nice if they released Series 3 asap. It has been a long time in coming and I'm sure I'm not the only person eagerly awaiting Series 3.

Yes it is back with a "BANG", another cracking series of the good old {retired} boys in blue.
You can really sink your teeth into this series with such relish.
Perfect for those rainy Sunday afternoons in front of the box.
Can not wait for season three.

The series continues in great form, and picture and sound quality are quite decent.

However, wins 1st prize in the packaging cheap-o-rama contest for this one: 3 discs stacked on top of each other in a single-disc keep case. This is not only highly impractical, but it also leads to scratched discs over time.

I sincerely hope this does not become the norm!

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Blackhorse47 on 30 July 2009
Format: DVD
Series 2, like all subsequent series, has eight episodes, and also like the other series there aren't any weak episodes. With Clarke gone, the angry and somewhat cliched boss Bevan is replaced by a more believable character of Strickland, the modern officer concerned with budgets and office politics. Strickland may crack the whip, but only when necessary and he's free with the praise when it's warranted.

Even though the characters were pretty clearly defined from the very first episode, by season 2 the method by which each one will go about solving the crime now becomes very obvious, and it's a pleasure to watch how their different techniques complement and sometimes rub up against each other. Brian will use his vast memory and analytical skills, Jack will engage in dogged police work, Gerry will cut corners and Sandra will try to bring them all together.

Increasingly the private lives of the leads start to be shown with Sandra's troubled private life, Brian's long-suffering wife, Gerry's complex family and Jack's lonely life. But they also increasingly are shown to enjoy spending time together off duty and so the feeling of family becomes more apparent.

Enjoy, laugh, and marvel at the way the often complex and unexpected solutions to the mysteries are effortlessly presented. This is the standard against which all popular drama should be judged.

PBS in the US is currently showing series 4, and I became curious about the earlier shows. The first episode of series 2 introduces Strickland as Sandra Pullman's new boss. He cautions her about keeping a close eye on the bottom line fiscally, and then throws her an unsolved case to investigate. The quality of both series 2 & 4 are high, the story lines are pretty interesting, and character development is favored over violence and car chases. Gore is kept to a minimum (unlike current crime shows in the US) -- thank goodness! Humor is a trademark of this show, and I like it. It's so nice to see actors look their age instead of being Botoxed to dullness (people in their 50's should have some character lines, after all, to show that they have actually had some life experiences!). And Dennis Waterman singing the theme song cracks me up. Was it coincidence that it sound similar to the Traveling Wilburys "End of the Line"? It's Friday night heaven for our family to be able to watch the Granada series of Sherlock Holmes and then New Tricks. Who needs to spend $10 per person at the cinema when you can relax at home with these great British programs? Thanks!

This is one series that the the BBC made that will stand the test of time. Superb acring and clear dialogue

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The first season of most programmes spend a lot of time focusing on building up character backgrounds and personality and include explosive story lines. Many programmes then struggle in the next season keeping up the momentum and they start to fail but not New Tricks. This show's Season 2 is 10x better than its 1st Season. The writers find a fantastic balance of drama, comedy (including amusing scenes involving Swear Jars) and character development. The season contains 8 episodes which I personally believe was too short but none the less delivers. A must buy for any person interested in watching New Tricks. I highly recommend it.
