BBC One has commissioned a fifth series of the popular crime drama New Tricks which stars� Amanda Redman, Dennis Waterman, Alun Armstrong and James Bolam.
The new eight-part series from Wall To Wall will begin filming in London later this year and follows a week-on-week audience increase which has seen the current series reaching a series high of 8.8 million viewers.
Tom Sherry, Head of Drama, Wall To Wall, said: "e;against tough competition, New Tricks has dominated its Monday night 9pm slot, which is a tribute to the writers and a talented cast. I am delighted that the BBC has shown its continued support for this much loved show by commissioning a fifth series and look forward to building on its success."e;
The series follows a team of grumpy retired coppers back on the job investigating unsolved and cold cases. Firmly stuck in the past, their unorthodox policing methods clash with the political correctness of a modern Met.
