Did You Know?


This episode (Glasgow UCOS) was postponed and the following episode New Tricks: Part of a Whole (2012) was shown in its place, because the storyline of Glasgow UCOS mentioned child abuse which was in the news at the time due to similar allegations concerning the late Jimmy Savile. See more »

Can this be construed as Redman and Armstrong's punishment for daring to publicly criticise the show's writers? Although Jack Halford missed a couple of episodes following the acquittal of Ricky Hanson in Series 5, this is the first time Sandra Pulman has been absent, not to mention Brian Lane. And it shows. Although Waterman and Lawson have managed to create a working partnership out of nowhere, not even that is enough to carry through what is probably the weakest episode in the show's history. The plot wouldn't be so bad if there weren't so many "coincidences". Steve's partner just happens to have been in care at the same time as the mysterious disappearances, as did, surprise surprise, the Glasgow DCI responsible for getting UCOS involved in the first place, whilst the now retired officer in charge of the original investigation just happens to be the man responsible for Steve's marriage break-up. Maybe Redman and Armstrong were better off out of it.
