There are more cases to solve, and there?s a lot more entertainment to enjoy as the supposedly-retired crime-fighting team of Dennis Waterman, James Bolam and Alun Armstrong knuckle down to business once more. And as they do so, New Tricks proves that if you want consistent quality, you need to turn to the old pros.

For it?s the outstanding cast, clearly having a ball here, that make New Tricks quite so much fun. This fourth series sees the trio of mismatched detectives--once more working for Amanda Redman--solving crimes and generating many laughs as they do so. Their methods are inevitably more towards the old school, and this inevitably brings them into conflict with the generation that followed them, but this just adds to the fun. Throw in a host of welcome famous faces in cameo roles, and it feels like a piece of television where good storytelling and strong production values sit above gimmicks and whizzbang special effects.

The pace of New Tricks may not immediately endear it to the CSI generation, but for many, that?s part of the appeal. That, and the quality of writing and the chance to enjoy good actors playing the kind of good roles that you?d thought had long since dried up. More of the same please, BBC. --Jon Foster

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars Newest of New Tricks 24 Mar 2008
From the fabulous opening episode in series 1, to the final episode in this series, New Tricks never fails to entertain, and impress, and make us laugh.

New Tricks stars the beautiful Amanda Redman as Sandra Pullman and TV veterans James Bolam as Jack Halford, Dennis Waterman as Gerry Standing and the great Alun Armstrong as Brian Lane. They are UCOS - the unsolved crimes unit of Scotland Yard. This is the coming together of three ex coppers and a female detective, and the problems they each bring along with them. Sandra is battling with the loss of her policeman father when she was young, Jack is still grieving over losing his beloved wife, Gerry is juggling with his finances and his ex wives, and Brian is an obsessive perfectionist and recovering alcoholic with a tendency to fly off the rails at any given moment. Together they combine their years of experience which they have gained by going against the grain. New Tricks is a combination of British televisions' greatest detective dramas from past and present, with comedic scenarios and light-heartedness fused with the drama of crime and the consequences it brings.
Performances are as you'd expect from the talents of Bolam, Armstrong, Redman and Waterman, with lots of familiar cameos from stars such as Gareth Hunt, Timothy West, Roy Hudd, George Cole, Linda Bellingham, June Whitfield, Keith Allen, to name but a few. With such a well assembled cast, great writing and the legendary BBC production values, New Tricks never takes itself too seriously, and that's a good thing. The marriage of comedy and crime have made this series one to watch, and if you never have done, you're never too old to start now. The evidence is here.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Tricks series 4 - in fact all New Tricks 1 Aug 2007
Absolutely superb - the old adage of "there may be snow on the hills but there's fire in the hearth" truly fits this programme. Amongst the actors there is no "weak link" and the storylines often make you laugh and cry within moments of each other. Why the series never received an award I will never fathom - Life on Mars has been lauded many times but for me [an others]New Tricks is far better.

Please BBC lets have many more series in the future and how about an award or two!

By Jen
This show keeps me coming back week after week for several reasons: The writing is first class, its witty, intelligent and often moving, and of course always interesting. The cast is fantastic; Redman, Waterman, Armstrong and Bollam play off each other so well, and really look as though they are having the time of their lives. Another fantastic season that should not be missed. Im 24, and rate this as one of my alltime favourite programmes on TV.

4.0 out of 5 stars Age before beauty? No Botox here! 5 Aug 2009
Not a botox-ed beauty in the lot! Experience counts here. And I love that the character of Det. Superintendent Pullman is womanly, intelligent, and not a size 0 twenty-something airhead. Series 4 carries on the good work. The guest actors really shine. The first show is funny, yet carries elements of heartbreak. Keep an eye on the subplots that pop up after the three male detectives wind up in the hospital following a car crash. That's all I can say without giving away the plot. See for yourself. (I sometimes have to turn on the subtitle feature because of the regional accents.) US viewers, New Tricks is Region 2, so remember you need a region-free DVD player. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lesson Learnt 17 Sep 2007
What a fantastic show! I've been completely mesmerized by actors I've known of for years. The ensemble is such a compliment it is a delight to be given the opportunity to watch this show. I would dearly love to see more seasons and even a feature length would be appreciated. From a fan of American television shows for their slickness, I can honestly say I am proud to be British when we produce this kind of quality!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic show finally makes it across the Pond. 25 Nov 2008
Here in the States,only a few Public Broadcasting stations show New Tricks on their Friday mystery nights. Luckily, San Jose, which serves San Francisco, is one of them. In my opinion, next to Inspector Morse, New Tricks is the best mystery show to come out of the UK. The acting and writing is superb, the cast is so compatible, I wonder if they have to pay them to act together. The plots are interesting and the mixture of humor, pathos, serious topics and straight drama is a mixture that must have been concocted by a genius. Amanada Redman proves that sexy and clever comes in many packages and her ability to work with the cast of characters in her unit are most admirable.Unfortunately, all DVD's available here are only for Region 2 so they don't play very well on Region 1 equipment. Based on New Tricks, I'm buying a universal player just so I can get your newest videos.What a great show. Too bad our hacks over here think that car chases, explosions and implied sexual situations translates into "good writing". Keep up the good work. It is appreciated.
