Resolved Question: Do You Like New Tricks?
The BBC comedy drama with Alun Armstrong, James Bolam, Amanda Redman and Dennie Waterman?
Now I liked Series 1-9 because it had James Bolam as Jack Halford who I thought was the best, Waterman was good but don't like Armstrong
What is it like with Denis Lawson, Nicolas Lyndhurst, Tamzin Outhwaite and Dennis Wateman

Resolved Question: Any New Tricks fans out
I love New Tricks and the cast are amazing (I have a massive girl crush on Amanda Redman) so am really sad that it is coming to a close and about the friction between cast and writers:
As much as I love New Tricks, I am inclined to agree with the cast when they say it isn't as good as it used to be - while it is still a great drama it seems to have lost its "edge" (for want of a better word) that it had when it first started, and the comedy element isn't as sharp anymore.
I will still watch the new series on Monday but it won't be the same now jack has left/is leaving. Now that James Bolam has left it doesn't surprise me that the others are following suit to be honest. It a shame its ending but in a way I am glad because you can't call it New Tricks without the amazing cast - it would be rubbish with anyone else!
