Episode 6: The Fame Game

Summary

While Sasha is occupied with a training course, the boys' investigations take them to a lookalike agency, where their top two acts were found dead in an apparent double suicide 13 years ago. In an industry reliant on the art of the illusion and their suspects intent on giving them the run around, Ted, Steve and Danny are convinced there's more to this case than first meets the eye. Steve is thrilled when their enquiries take them to the door of one of his football heroes, but his glee is short-lived. Detective drama, starring Denis Lawson.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

While Sasha is away on a course, Ted, Steve and Danny investigate an apparent suicide pact between a married couple who had been professional lookalikes. She was Cher while he impersonated “the poor man’s George Best” ex-footballer Mikey Briggs. As most of the people involved (Lucy Benjamin, Eva Pope and Michael Higgs) are used to living a lie, they constantly give the trio the run-around.

It’s the flimsiest of plots but New Tricks is now so soapy it seems to revolve around the detectives’ domestic problems rather than a crime. Danny’s discombobulated by living in two places, Steve has financial problems while Sasha is trying to get her son back on track.
