Storyline

Jack attends the funeral of ex-cop Derek Brooker who went to his grave trying to prove that journalist Peter Edelmann was killed by the American Air Force to stop him exposing an alleged U.F.O. crash, and persuades Sandra to re-open the case. The former Air Base Colonel denies that Peter was ever there, claiming he committed suicide, but local ufologists say that they were present with him and a code, encrypted in a lottery ticket, unlocks his findings. It was a plane crash, the corpses all suspected terrorists illegally abducted by the American government. However the ufologists and another eye-witness, an ex-airman whose café has been set alight by persons unknown, are too frightened to testify and the case remains officially unsolved.

Quotes

[first lines]
Det Supt Sandra Pullman: I'm sorry, Jack, this case is neither unsolved nor open. Peter Edelmann committed suicide.
Jack Halford: Derek always thought there was more to it than that.
Det Supt Sandra Pullman: Yes, a lot more according to his files and none of it remotely plausible.
Jack Halford: Look, I'd be the first to admit some of Derek's theories were a bit...
Det Supt Sandra Pullman: I know he was a friend, Jack.
Jack Halford: This is not about friendship, Sandra; it's about loyalty. A fellow police officer whose name's about to be dragged through the mud...

Americans made to look bad
24 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A case is opened of a man that was a cop who believed in UFOs. Him and another believer went in to the forest with special suits on when they saw something that was like a crash.

Jack knew the man named Edleman and liked him. They opened the case for a couple of reasons one was his girlfriend said Edleman did not kill himself. His computer was taken by someone and the police could not find out what his last days were and what he saw. His girlfriend helped with the the things he had on his computer by some thing on his lottery ticket.

Anyway this episode blamed the Americans. Brian who supposedly very smart believes in the UFO siting. It comes out that the Americans had a number of British citizens under arrest for probable terrorism and they died in an airplane crash that the CIA covered up.

I like New Tricks but this story is bizarre. UCOS believes the Americans are also scaring and threatening former soldiers who saw the crash and living in England so they will not talk.

I was also surprised to see the man that plays Father Brown/Mark Williams, in this he also looks nutty. I did not like the fact America was used as ploy for this episode with all the other countries that are involved in terrorism they picked the US that is trying to stop it as a topic for this episode.
