by | Nov 14, 2012 | All, TV News

With ratings for the last series averaging 8.3 million and filming about to begin on series 10 with a two part episode in Gibraltar, BBC One’s hit drama New Tricks also sees the arrival of Nicholas Lyndhurst as a new recruit to Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman’s (Amanda Redman) team of retired ex-coppers reinvestigating the Met’s unsolved crimes.

Nicholas Lyndhurst’s career has spanned nearly 40 years in some of the Britain’s best-loved television shows, from  Only Fools And Horses and Butterflies to David Copperfield, After You’ve Gone, Goodnight Sweetheart and Rock & Chips.  Lyndhurst says:  “I am thrilled to have been asked to join New Tricks. I have always admired the clever mixture of charm, wit, and intelligence the show brings to its audience, and feel very flattered to be part of the BBC’s top drama series.”

Richard Burrell, Executive Producer Wall To Wall says: “We are very excited to have Nicholas joining the cast of New Tricks. I think that the audience are going to have great fun watching him as a new member of the anarchic UCOS team ensuring that solving cases for the Met is never dull. We can’t wait to start working with him.”

The tenth 10-part series of New Tricks begins filming in Gibraltar later this month with a special two part opening episode, then continues filming on location in London and is due for transmission on BBC One next year.

Lyndhurst has been bought in to replace Alun Armstrong who will leave next series after ten years with the show.

Executive Producer for the BBC, Polly Hill, adds: “We are thrilled that Nicholas Lyndhurt is joining New Tricks.   We know how important this series is to the BBC1 audience, and feel that Nicholas will fit brilliantly into the UCOS team and this much loved show.”
