Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Gerry Standing, that grizzled old lion, objects to his daughter’s choice of husband as New Tricks returns for, what, its 98th series? (Eleventh, actually, though it feels like many, many more.)

So Gerry (Denis Waterman), for no particular reason, launches one of his anti-charm offensives – which is more offence than charm – at the hapless young swain, who happens to be a solicitor. Ah, so that’s what’s got Gerry’s dander up.

Though personnel might come and go, nothing much really changes at the heart of the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad; the Tricksters, a sentimental bunch, hear a sob story and they pursue wrongdoers wherever it might lead them.

In this first new adventure, Dan (Nicholas Lyndhurst), Steve (Denis Lawson) and Sasha (Tamzin Outhwaite) listen to an old lag’s tale of woe about missing stolen jewellery and the death of his young grandson in a fall from a London tower block.
