More Info

New Tricks Series 12 returns for a final series, following the work of the (fictional) Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad (UCOS) of the Metropolitan Police Service. DCI Sasha Miller (Tamzin Outhwaite) and her team (Nicholas Lyndhurst, Denis Lawson & Larry Lamb) face 10 episodes of crime solving in the final series and Denis Waterman appears in the first two episodes before bowing out of the rest of the series.

Series 12 is written cleverly by Julian Simpson, who expertly combines engaging drama with hints of comedy, as well as providing each leading character with a plotline to thrill the viewer. Since the first airing in 2003, the show has had a multitude of cast changes, but it does not distance itself from the genius story based on ‘teaching an old dog new tricks’.

New Tricks Series 12: Reviews

“Over the course of its 12 years on TV, ratings have never once dropped below five million.” – The Guardian

“For a show based on the idea of taking something old and giving it a new purpose BBC One's New Tricks has certainly had to live up to its name.” – Western Gazette

New Tricks Series 12 DVD: Episode Guide

  1. Last Man Standing Part One: Gerry is spooked by the discovery of UCOS's latest victim: his old DCI, whose body has lain untouched under a basement for 30 years.
  2. Last Man Standing Part Two: With UCOS coming under fire and Strickland in a difficult position, Gerry is forced to go on the run with Danny's help, whilst Steve, Sasha and Fiona search for the proof they need to prove his innocence.
  3. The Curate’s Egg: Danny and Steve ‘welcome’ new boss Ted Case into the UCOS office in Sasha’s absence, but for all his wealth of experience, keen eye for detail and a killer instinct for detecting liars, they aren’t quite as sold on his superstitious quirks.
  4. The Wolf of Wallbrook: Ted leads an investigation into the apparent suicide of a city trader, embroiled in the cut throat world of London’s financial district back in the eighties.
  5. Prodigal Sons: With Sasha back on fighting form, UCOS investigate the death of a talented cricket prodigy, a star of the pitch and apple of his father's eye, yet loathed by his teammates.
  6. The Fame Game: While Sasha is occupied with an intensive training course, the boys’ investigations take them to a lookalike agency, where their top two acts were found dead in an apparent double suicide 13 years ago.
  7. The Russian Cousin: UCOS investigate the murder of a private investigator, who is stabbed through the heart in a suspected robbery gone wrong.
  8. Lottery Curse: A skeleton uncovered in the foundations of a swimming pool is identified as Cheryl – a young, pretty lottery winner reported missing 17 years ago.
  9. Life Expectancy: A blood-stained bust is uncovered during some reconstruction work in a cemetery, pointing UCOS to the murder of an alternative medicine practitioner, bludgeoned to death seven years ago.
  10. The Crazy Gang: UCOS is threatened with closure following their perceived mishandling of the Henway case.
