The team reinvestigate the unsolved murder in 1987 of policewoman Kate Daniels, who trained at Hendon College with Sandra. The sole witness, then a little girl, is optician Patricia Lee, who still has nightmares about the man running from the scene. The trail leads to Philip Sheppard, known for stalking blondes like Kate, but Brian believes the case is connected to Kate's lover Nick Gilbert, who dropped out of police college. Whilst Gerry takes drastic action to help Patricia identify Sheppard in a line-up, Brian breaks the rules in his efforts to trap Gilbert, jeopardising his career and his marriage in the process.

Episode 1.1
6 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

The first episode of the series New Tricks looks a little rough and unsteady as the characters we grew to love are not yet fully formed. It probably not the strongest episode featuring the classic lineup and looks less sure than the pilot.

Sandra is rather irate in this first episode as she wants the team to reopen the death of WPC Kate Daniels, someone Sandra knew at police college and we think that she is also harbouring some guilt.

Her cold case team of veteran retired detectives have other things on their mind. Jack is a recent widower and has not come to terms with it. Chauvinist Gerry has dinner with his ex-wives and daughters and finds out that he is about to become a grandad.

Brian is rather hyped up, harassing a former colleague who he thinks is responsible for getting him kicked out from the force and he has not been taking his medication.

Yet we still see the team bond, bicker and use some wily tricks to get results and crack a joke or two.
