5.0 out of 5 stars Why end such a good series?, 22 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Tricks Series 12 [DVD] (DVD)
Love the show. Hate to see it end. Thought it would be less enjoyable without Dennis Waterman, but the new guy is great. I sure wish they were going to continue it. New cast, good plots, great acting. Why would they cancel it now?

5.0 out of 5 stars I liked John Nettles but ---, 20 Oct. 2015
I liked John Nettles as Barnaby. But I like the new Barnaby just as well. Neil Dudgeon is not the old Barnaby, but so what. He's funny and smart and figures things out just as well. I also like his wife, and Sikes. The plots are just as intricate as the old plots and the characters are just as interesting. I'll buy the series as they come out and enjoy every one.

5.0 out of 5 stars He is an excellent actor and can take any role, 21 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Didn't know what to expect, except that Peter Davison has never failed me in any show he was in. He is an excellent actor and can take any role, but still maintain his own personality. Loved the series. Only wish it had continued, but it wrapped up neatly at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Peter Davison's best. He is such a good actor, 21 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of Peter Davison's best. He is such a good actor. I've seen him in New Tricks and Mrs. Bradley Mysteries and even in a Miss Marple, and of course All Creatures Great and Small. Whether he plays a good guy or a bad guy (In Mrs. Bradley Mysteries he was both!) he is excellent. (Distant Shores is another great series he stars in.) This series is very well done. I always look for unpredictable story lines, and this series did not disappoint. "Dangerous" is anything but, physically, but his thinking takes him into very dangerous situations. I love the way he just seems above it all when his co-workers try to put him down -- he's too grown up to be bothered. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes a good mystery with a twist at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best mysery series I've seen., 21 May 2015
I love this series. The acting is superb -- normal people reacting with just enough contradictions thrown in to make it unpredictable. McLachlan is a real person with untapped emotional depths. Hard to figure out how he will react but it always seems right. He solves murders despite obstacles from authority, and isn't afraid to tackle powerful people. The plots are believable and there's humor, too, which is hard to pull off in murder mysteries. The whole cast is great and they work very well together. A great series. Hope it goes on a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars but he'll never have that ironic humor that made Richard so much fun towatch, 3 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I miss Richard. Kris Marshall is ok, but he'll never have that ironic humor that made Richard so much fun to watch. The cast is just getting into their stride in Series 4, and I look forward to the next series. The "new girl" is finding her feet, and may well be as good as Fidel. Would be nice to know some of her history. Good to know she has Duane's number. Still one of the best shows I've seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars and remember why I liked it so much when it aired on PBS for ..., 3 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just bought the entire series, and remember why I liked it so much when it aired on PBS for a while. There is no "mean" humor in it, even there there are lots of nasty comments. And Dad almost always wins out in the end! Very amusing. Nicholas Lindhurst is perfect, the kids are devious and the mother-in-law is great. I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and serious - Great series., 3 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best. Just a shame it only lasted two series. Have to admit, though, all problems were neatly resolved in the end, even Bills total obsession with truth at all costs. Great characters and marvelous, twisted stories. More than enough humor to offset the serious. I'd recommend it to anyone.
