NEW TRICKS Season 5 on DVD Sept 27

Fifth season of the smash hit U.K. crime series debuts on DVD
NEW TRICKS Season 5 on DVD September 27, 2011

"Mysteries are top notch, twisty and ingeniously solved…Great fun"—PaperMag
"Cutting-edge Brit TV"—The Guardian
"Well crafted, well acted"—Mail on Sunday

Silver Spring, Md —Returning with more sharp writing, dry humor, and engrossing mysteries, New Tricks: Season 5 debuts on DVD from Acorn Media on September 27, 2011. Starring Amanda Redman (Sexy Beast), Dennis Waterman (The Sweeney, Circles of Deceit), Alun Armstrong (Garrow’s Law, Bleak House, Patriot Games), and James Bolam (The Beiderbecke Affair), New Tricks follows a team of semi-retired and somewhat curmudgeonly detectives as they reinvestigate cold cases. The series has run on the BBC for seven seasons since 2003 with an eight season currently in production, and has enjoyed ongoing broadcast exposure in North America on public television, garnering fans on both sides of the Atlantic for its compelling stories, likeable characters, and a top-notch cast. The DVD 3-Disc Set includes all eight episodes from Season 5, plus a bonus behind-the-scenes featurette.

“The most popular program on British TV” (Daily Mail) returns with more old-school crime solving and witty banter. Superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman) and her team of aging cops tackle cold cases abandoned by the Metropolitan Police. Each detective has a fair share of personal demons: Jack Halford (James Bolam) is haunted by his wife’s murder. Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman) has a troubled relationship with his daughter. Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong) battles the bottle, and Sandra seeks the truth about her family’s shady past.

Season 5 guest stars include Claire Bloom (The King’s Speech), James Fox (A Passage to India), David Troughton (The Norman Conquests), and Ronald Pickup (The Rector’s Wife).
