I must say that before I opened the the case I read the Synopsis on the back and immediately thought well I guess this is the last one I will buy. I then sat and watched the first 2 part episode in Gilbralta and enjoyed the scenery but not the story. Certainly not up to par with past episodes. Into the second disk I was being slowly drawn in by the new characters and getting more interested in the show with its drastic changes to cast. When Sandra finally left and the Sasha showed up I was hopeful having seen her on another show (nothing like this a light comedy). By the last show I was wanting more and look forward to Series 11. It will be another year long wait I am afraid. For the oldtimers who have watched from the beginning there is much to miss as it was fresh, lively and totally unexpected with plots that more often than not told a rich story not related to the actual crime itself. History and events interwoven with a crime. It strayed away from that toward the end but gave us more back story into each character. They were humanized to the extent we are now feeling real loss at their departure. I hope that the writers if they are from the past will go back and re-read/watch earlier episodes and try to match the concept. If new do the same. The new actors along with Gerry (Dennis Waterman) appear to have a lot of potential and seem to have good chemistry together and I look forward to seeing them reach their so far undeveloped talents. I find quite a few of the reviewers a little harsh for saying Gerry has lost some of his hi-jinx. It is TEN YEARS later. Unless he was an imbecile he certainly would have done some "growing-up" and I hope that future episodes will develop the new characters into the team the old ones were.

Series 10 of New Tricks saw a sea change in this very successful and long running show which debuted as long ago as 2003 and has now run to 87 episodes. By the end of the series the only member of the original team still in UCOS was Jerry Standing (Dennis Waterman). Following the departure of Jack Halford (James Bolam) at the beginning of the last series, it was time to bid a fond farewell to both Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong) and DS Sandra Pulman (Amanda Redman), Brian fairly early on in the series and Sandra in Episode 8.

The cases this time round were quite varied. We start off with a two part story set in Gibralter, which is unusual for New Tricks which has rarely strayed far from its London home in the past. This was a puzzling cold case in which two killings separated by sixteen years were apparently linked. Brian had been getting himself into trouble and there are signs that his days in UCOS were numbered. The change of scenery seemed to suit the team who seemed to excel with the more exotic surroundings. However, the rest of the episodes were back in London, and I would say the stories were a lot more interesting and coherent than, perhaps those in Series 9 when apparently the cast took it on themselves to rewrite some of the scripts!

So how did the new boys and girl get on? Steve McAndrew (Denis Lawson), Jack Halford's replacement, seems to have really settled in with the team now and appears comfortable in the role. However, I was particularly impressed with Dan Griffin, Brian's replacement, played by Nicholas Lyndhurst who is probably best known for his role in Only Fools and Horses. From his appearance in Episode 5, when the team are investigating a murder case from 1980's Soho, he seemed to be a natural for UCOS. This was an inspired piece of casting.

I have been watching this series from the beginning and have enjoyed them all. I have recommended it to friends as I feel most people would like this show. Nice to see older stars.

The formula remains the same, but it's like a comfortable old pair of shoes. The improbabilities are occasionally considerable (things are resolved just too easily at times), but the cast, both major and minor players, are invariably good and entertaining.

Aha, the cast. We go in one end with 3/4 of the originals and come out the other with 1/4. I find the new guy not as thoroughly entertaining as Brian - let's face it, Alun Armstrong's Brian "Memory" Lane is a comic creation right up there with Philip Glenister's marvellous Gene Hunt, so how does one follow an act like that? - and the new boss is too new to really get a feel for how it'll all develop. Coming to the end of the road? Past its use-by date? Perhaps - certainly there's sometimes a feeling that the formula has been pretty well worked out, but somehow different and often ingenious ideas come up. The collapse of Yugoslavia? The heritage of WW2 Italy? Anyway, still entertaining.

An enjoyable program, easy to follow and one that I can and will go back to. Actors are seasoned actors

As with all the New Tricks series this one does not dissappoint. Even though Amanda redman has moved on the new DCI places herself in the thick of investigation and blends in well with the new team- I continue to look at the complete New Tricks Series over & over

We've followed the show for ten years and I think the next season will be make or break. It is still well written and has the same mix of drama and comedy. Dennis waterman is carrying the show for some viewers, I'm sure. This current season was good, but the next one will be the decider.
