Basic info and plot
New Tricks is a British comedy and drama television series that follows the members of a fictional Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad (UCOS) of the London Police. Produced by Headstrong Pictures for BBC One, Series 12 of the show was released on August 4, 2015 in the UK.
Starring Tamzin Outhwaite, Nicholas Lyndhurst and Denis Lawson, New Tricks follows the UCOS led by Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman and three retired police officers – Gerry Standing, Jack Halford and Brian Lane – who are trying to investigate crimes that were thought to be unsolvable. When Pullman is put in charge of the UCOS she finds herself alone, with no one to help her. So, she decides to pull three of the London’s finest out of retirement and work with them on solving decade-old crimes. But times have changed and it’s not like the old days. The old dogs have to learn new tricks in chasing criminals and solving cases.
Since the series first premiered in 2003, New Tricks has been extremely popular in the UK and worldwide, and was thought to be one of the most enduring dramas on television. However, it seems that inspiration has run dry and the series ratings have been declining gradually. After the release of Series 12, BBC One controllers Charlotte Moore and Ben Stephenson made a statement that the show will not be returning for another season. It seems that the network wants to make room for something new and fresh to excite its viewers. Unless fans can convince BBC One to do otherwise, we will not be seeing New Tricks returning next year.
