As the Gibraltar locals reel from the murder of shipping agent Gordon Fletcher, Brian and Gerry - last seen being carried off in a shipping container - find themselves stranded on the side of a Spanish mountain, and now face the problem of how to get back to the rest of the team. As Sandra attempts to unravel secrets stretching back over three decades and link what has now become three murders, she still has doubts about the innocence of charming entrepreneur Harry Truman - but that doesn't stop her joining him for lunch on his luxury yacht. Conclusion of a two-part story, with regulars Amanda Redman, Alun Armstrong, Dennis Waterman and Denis Lawson joined by Vincent Regan and George Irving.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Another body has turned up on tranquil and sunny Gibraltar and its harassed police chief blames the Tricksters for stirring up trouble and ripping open old wounds. The fool – hasn’t he ever seen an episode of New Tricks? That’s what they do.

But the big, complex case involving the murder of a drug smuggler in 1998 is possibly only a side issue because the episode is really about troubled Brian’s guilt and inner torment. He’s still tearing himself up about the death of a young man in custody decades ago when Brian (the splendid Alun Armstrong) was just a rookie cop. But h thinks the time has come for atonement as he prepares to face up to the consequences of lashing out at a police chief, the man he blames for what happened in that cell all of those years ago.
