Storyline

When junior tennis champion Alice Kemp fell to her death from a balcony in 2010, it was assumed she killed herself as she had lost a crucial match but now a cleaner recalls hearing raised voices just before the death and the case is reopened. Alice's agent, Anthony Marshall, claims he lost a valuable client but admits Alice was considering a change of representation whilst Victoria, Alice's mother, tells the team that David, her estranged husband, a gambling addict, had visited Alice before the fatal match. He admits that he was betting against her for money and asked her to lose the march but denies any foul play. Fawn, the player who beat Alice and took her place as Number One, was nonetheless good friends with her and helps the team find the person responsible for Alice's death though Brian is less successful in trying to get his dog in with a model agency.

Gerry hits a winner
21 February 2016 | by (Kent, UK) – See all my reviews

As with most New Tricks episodes there are some really good cameos. First of all, the excellent Tamzin Outhwaite as a young tennis star's mother. There's a brittleness to her character that is underplayed and, as such, unsettles you more than the overtly unpleasant traits that some actors would have employed. The comedian Alexei Sayle is very believable as a slimy agent who may or may not be hiding secrets. The young actress, Martha MackIntosh, played the conflicted Fawn Brammall with sincerity and vulnerability. However, it is Dennis Waterman's Gerry who comes out of this episode as the most affecting character. The way he clearly cares about Fawn in a fatherly way is beautifully played and the scene where he lends her his coat perfectly captures the feelings of righteous anger and protectiveness shown by Gerry throughout the episode. It is his performance which lingers in the memory and gains extra layers on subsequent re-watching.
