Storyline

Some years after her wealthy father died of a heart attack confronting an intruder - who fled empty-handed - Vicky Anderson asks Sandra and the team to intervene, since clairvoyant Sebastian Carter, having supposedly communed with the dead man, claims he knew the assailant. Sandra is sceptical, feeling Carter is in league with the would-be burglar and using Vicky to get at what he wanted that night. The trail leads to Penny, Vicky's adopted sister, taken in by Anderson after her father died in prison serving a sentence for fraud, and Simon Beswick, the cell-mate, who tells the team he thinks Anderson was also guilty of fraud and the burglar a double-crossed partner-in-crime after the spoils. Sandra is still unsure if Carter is an accomplice or an innocent dupe though, when the case is closed, his interpretation of her father's feelings brings her closer to half-brother Tom.

Psychics, Sandra's half-brother and Chinatown and Hong Kong
13 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first episode of season 7, kind of the halfway mark of New Tricks which ran 12 seasons. Season 7 is also the second last season where the original UCOS gang are together, with Jack (James Bolam) leaving under very sad circumstances in the first episode of season 9.

I loved Brian attempting to make a joke about Mr Plummer owning a construction company!!

Sandra's half-brother Tom wants to catch up with her for a family catch-up, but Sandra is hardly pleased at all. Tom appears in no further episodes of New Tricks.

Jack and Brian visit Chinatown as part of their investigation, dropping by a grocery store to visit a character played by David Bradley, who was fantastic in a Midsomer Murders episode, The Green Man.
