Superintendent Sandra Pullman and her Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad return for a fifth series of New Tricks. The UCOS team are back reinvestigating the unsolved murders and cold cases the Met have long since filed away.
This season, the team face some tough challenges.
There are huge professional and personal stakes at play when Ricky Hanson stands trial for the attempted murder of Jack Halford, Standing faces the consequences of lying to his "daughter" Emily, Pullman has to reconcile herself with the truth about her late father, and Lane's old demons come back to haunt him as the repercussions of the trial begin to hit home.
The team are forced to overcome personal obstacles in an attempt to maintain business as usual.
Cases involving the death of a radio DJ in an arson attack, a prostitute who received an unexpected windfall in a client's will and an actor's death on stage during a performance are among the investigations that test the team to their limits.
The series is produced by Wall to Wall.
