Following 2003's pilot show, cop drama New Tricks returned to BBC One for a six-part series in 2004 to hit ratings and rave reviews.

The second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth series aired to even greater acclaim and figures.

Now in 2012 the show is back for series 9 – but this time there are changes ahead for the UCOS team.  One will leave and a new member will join.

The team must learn to work together again if they are going to continue to solve cold cases.

Starring: Alun Armstrong, Denis Lawson, Amanda Redman and Dennis Waterman.

The Unsolved Crime and Open Case squad is keeping busy, with its remit to re-investigate crimes that were never conclusively closed – and put them to rest.  Shootings, murders, art fraud, apparent suicides, missing persons – all cases from the past that ended with as many questions as answers.  Pullman’s officers have a real hunger for the job and are finding a surprising incidence of cover-up and conspiracy.  But these old dogs won’t roll over easily.

Amanda Redman is Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman, Alun Armstrong is Brian Lane, Denis Lawson is Steve McAndrew, Dennis Waterman is Gerry Standing.
