New Tricks: Season 7 DVD Review

In this wildly popular crime series, aging cops and traditional sleuthing trump high-tech gadgets and modern criminology. James Bolam (The Beiderbecke Affair), Alun Armstrong (Garrow’s Law), and Dennis Waterman (The Sweeney) star as three detectives pulled out of retirement to unravel cases that stumped the Metropolitan Police. Their beautiful boss, Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman, Sexy Beast), keeps them on track and mostly out of trouble as they follow their hunches and bend the rules. 

Strong writing, ample humor, and a splendid cast have made this one of the most-watched shows on British television. This time around, the team has its hands full with unsolved murders, an 18-year-old abduction, and a 30-year-old robbery that threatens the team’s very existence. Guest stars include Rupert Graves (Death at a Funeral), Paul Rhys (Chaplin), Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey), and Si├ón Phillips (I, Claudius).

Review:  What happens when you take some retired cops and put them back on the job to work on cold cases?  Well, in the case of this sometimes darkly humorish british drama you get a lot of hijinks.  This is no slapstick, these are real CSI-esque cold cases, but the motley crew reminds you more of something in Breakout Kings with personalities sometimes clashing and what appears to be an absolute need to break the rules!  This DVD release is season 7 for this great show.  You can go back and collect them all..what is great about shows like this is that you can just jump right in, no need to have the back library until you're sure you enjoy it.....but you will!

The special features include: BONUS Behind-the-scenes featurette (8 min.) and bloopers (10 min.) and SDH subtitles

Interest Range: Drama
