Missed evidence

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The writers seem to have forgotten the ward nurse, who Ricky Hanson left lying on the floor, alive or dead we don't know. Either way this would have been a significant part of his trial, very hard for the slimy silk to gloss over, and something of a clincher for the jury. But then the job of the scriptwriter is to keep the pot boiling, so I'm not really complaining. We are delighted to see another season of this excellent series appearing on Australian television, it has wit, depth, compassion, and splendid ensemble acting. It's been a long time since The Sweeney and The Likely Lads, much has changed in the world and on television, but watching New Tricks I realise that much has not changed, about human nature, and about good drama. Today we have technology that makes trivial work of scenes that forty years ago would have been technically or financially impossible. Technology brings freedom, and this team makes good use of it.
