New Tricks centres on the work of the fictitious Metropolitan Police Unit – Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad UCOS.

The unit is headed up by Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman), a Detective Superintendent. UCOS comprises of a group of retired officers who have gone back to work to crack unsolved cases.

The group of four work well together and act as family towards each other. However, they often clash with Robert Strickland (Anthony Calf), the Deputy Assistant Commissioner.

The programme began as a one-off, broadcast in March 2003. However, it attracted a sizeable number of viewers and so the BBC commissioned a series of six episodes. The programme has continued to be a ratings hit and has been airing ever since.

The ensemble cast includes Amanda Redman, James Bolam (Jack Halford), Alun Armstrong (Brian Lane) and Dennis Waterman, who also sings the theme tune to New Tricks, as Gerry Standing.

In the series the fictional quartet have a colourful past but work well together as a close-knit unit.

In 2012, James Bolam who played the character Jack Halford left the show. Taking his place was Denis Lawson, who joined as retired Detective Inspector Steve McAndrew from Glasgow.

New Tricks is still very popular, and when the first programme of Series 9 was broadcast in August 2012, it attracted more than eight million viewers.

The BBC announced that Amanda Redman and Alun Armstrong would leave the show after the 10th series. Former Only Fools and Horses actor Nicholas Lyndhurst has been confirmed for the show’s tenth series.

New Tricks has been sold to at least 25 countries
