The ep shown on Monday was the last of the current series; one more series will be filmed, with Amanda, Alun, Dennis and Denis. After that both Amanda and Alun are leaving.
There is much speculation as to whether 'Scots UCOS' will be created - but that's all it is so far -speculation

The episode broadcast on Monday was actually postponed from the previous week through the Media Frenzy over Jimmy Saville ... and the final episode presented within its place.

Given that Alun Armstring and Amanda Redman will be leaving the series, it is plausible that Star Wars Alumni Denis Lawson (he played Red in Star Wars 4) and Dennis Waterman will appear within any series if commissioned.

I will miss the actors from the series, particularly James Bolam.

Indeed. The thought of Waterman shouting his way through another show fills me with gloom. I would much rather see a new series, perhaps about a semi-retired detective, featuring Bolam alone.

if they're losing Alun and Amanda on top of James already they should just call it a day.

Why don't we just wait to see who they get to make up the numbers and how good the storylines are.

I am sure there will be "it's not as good as it used to be" messages written before the next series even starts.

Dennis Waterman hasn't been in Star Wars

In reality, the whole UCOS team would be likely to be seconded to the "Jimmy Savile" enquiry bearing in mind their backgrounds and expertise. (A made up celeb could be created for drama purposes)

A fitting end to this era would be Gerry and Steve being excluded from the enquiry as they had met him or been involved in some police charity do he had attended (pictures could be photoshopped). Gerry and Steve then get sent to Scotland to fill gaps of officers from Scottish UCOS seconded to Savile investigation.

Obviously this would not have been written, as no writer would ever come up with something as twisted or fantasical as the truth !!!

For me New Tricks was great because of the superb cast, with them all but one gone, it will be a different show entirely and imo should be treated as such.

Alun, Amanda, Dennis and Denis.

Start filming the next series of New Tricks.

Denis, in an interview a few weeks ago, said they start filming the new series in November.

When you've had nearly 9 years and 75 episodes (the Glasgow one was 76) of a team of 4, it was always going to be strange to have just the two of them, whether you hated or liked the episode.

I didn't dislike it but I need to watch it again to really get used to just seeing Steve and Gerry in it.
Which I'll do when the DVD set comes next week.

No one could be better than Amanda and Alun, and the series was written with the four of them in mind - the creator wanted those 4 actors for the roles - but if they replace them with actors I like I'll watch.

If I don't like them I won't. Cos I have to like all 4 of them.
Simple, to me.

Oh right yeah.

I thought you might have had inside info on a Scottish spin off.

Don't worry - Taggart survived for years without anyone called Taggart actually in it.

And wasn't there a whole season of Dallas which was a dream

Yes, in his protective suit!

Was it ever explained why Brian (a north-easterner) supports Wimbledon?

It was reported recently that Nicholas Lyndhurst is joining New Tricks but in what capacity wasn't stated. He might be a replacement for Amanda Redman.
