Storyline

Gerry and Brian end up on an orange farm from where they hitch a lift with a biker group back to Gibraltar and tell Sandra of the connection between Fletcher and Truman and the fact that Danny Bossano's father Levy met Fletcher just before he died. Levy is tight-lipped as to why he has thirty grand in the house, Truman explaining to Sandra that the thirty grand was actually Fletcher's casino winnings. Meanwhile Gerry and Brian discover that Danny drew many pictures of his friends, the sons of soldiers, one of whom was a young Sinclair, who describes Danny's accidental death. Levy then unmasks Christian's killer who had been paying him to keep quiet. Back home Brian faces his tribunal but Embleton, the man he blames for Anthony Kaye's death in custody, drops charges against him and he is exonerated. However Brian secretly tapes a confession from Embleton as to what really happened and gives the tape to Kaye's mother. Written by don @ minifie-1

The team head to Gibraltar
6 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This, the tenth series of 'New Tricks' opens with Brian staring into a pint and quoting Nietzsche before getting up and flooring the senior officer whose retirement bash he is attending! This inevitably leads to his suspension from UCOS although it turns out this was his plan all along as he believes the officer he hit was culpable for a death in custody many years before and he plans to expose the truth at the enquiry. Soon after the rest of the team are called in when an ex-Argentine pistol is found; it is linked to two murders; one in England; the other, many years earlier, in Gibraltar.

This proves an excuse for the team to head to The Rock to follow leads there. It won't be easy though as at the time of the murder Gibraltar was full of servicemen returning from victory in the Falklands and the weapon was almost certainly a souvenir brought back from the South Atlantic by a soldier. Their investigation will mean working with the local police and dealing with the military. They also get help from an unlikely source when Brian turns up… although Sandra wants him on the next plane home!

One could be excused for thinking the series might be getting a bit stale by now but on the strength of this two-part story I'm not so sure. The case was interesting without being too convoluted and there were plenty of laughs to be had… most notably when Brian and Gerry get trapped in an empty shipping container and find themselves in Spain! The resolution of the case was well handled; giving a rather poignant ending rather than a confrontation one might expect… that confrontation was left for Brian's enquiry and is likely to leave viewers wanting to cheer as Brian has words with the man he hit! As always the whole cast do a fine job but most notable is Alun Armstrong who is great as Brian. Often when a series leaves its usual location for an overseas case it is a weaker episode that seems like it was made as a way to give the makers an excuse to go somewhere nice but here it didn't feel that way… even if the scenery did look stunning!
