BBC calls time on ‘New Tricks’

by | Feb 24, 2015 | All, TV News

The BBC has called time on crime drama New Tricks after twelve years. The series which has been a firm favourite since it began in 2003 has gone through a lot of changes in recent years with the majority of the original cast leaving the show. BBC1 controller Charlotte Moore and BBC drama controller Ben Stephenson said in a joint statement: “We are incredibly proud of New Tricks and would like to thank Roy Mitchell, the brilliant creator, Wall to Wall and Headstrong, and all the cast and teams involved across the 12 series.

However, on BBC1 it’s important to make room for new series and continue to increase the range of drama on the channel, so it won’t be returning after the next series airs this summer.”

BBC bosses promised that the final series, featuring 10 new episodes, would go out on a high.

New Tricks will conclude this Summer on BBC One.
