Storyline

Folllowing an attempt to kill Stephen Fisher Strickland summons the team to a secret meeting. He tells them that thirty years earlier he and Fisher were part of an intelligence group investigating the IRA but their source journalist Simon Bisley was killed in a hit-and-run and the investigation ended. Now others of the group are being murdered. Bisley had linked the IRA to a career criminal Carl Dillon who,according to Gerry's informant Tinker,has just recruited two assassins and a telling document which could incriminate Dillon was stolen from Bisley's office. However Brian believes that a rogue member of the former secret service team has a vested interest in stealing the document and silencing their colleagues over it,giving Strickland the means to go after them though the team is dissatisfied with the result.

More Spooks than New Tricks
15 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If any episode was proof that Redman & Armstrong's fears that the writers had veered far from the show's original concept were well-founded, this is it. The four regulars feature almost as bit-part players with Strickland and arch-slimeball Stephen Fisher promoted to centre stage in what appears to be an old script left over from "Spooks". "New Tricks" it certainly isn't. Solving unsolved "civilian" crimes is pushed to one side to deal with the unravelling of a conspiracy involving sleeper agents and a plot to systematically wipe them out. Earlier delvings into the sinister world of security service dealings had been fairly well tackled; secret drug tests on serving soldiers in "Mad Dogs", illegal rendition in "The Truth is Out There", preventing the loss of potentially valuable scientific methods in "The Gentleman Vanishes", all these worked well within the show's remit as they were believable and could be related to everyday life. "Part of a Whole" on the other hand is so far removed from what most people would regard as normal it simply doesn't fit into what "New Tricks" was all about, i.e. retired police officers using their skills to solve seemingly insolvable crimes. If this episode was designed to teach Redman and Armstrong a lesson over their well-publicised criticisms of the direction the show was taking, it failed. If, instead, it was an example of the way the show was heading then maybe they did the right thing in leaving when they did.
