TV watch: New Tricks

I love New Tricks, however far fetched the stories are. I wondered how the new set up would work but I’m liking Nicholas Lyndhurst as Danny; I love the way he knows everything. Yesterday’s episode was particularly good, venturing into the realms of psychogeography. Two murders connected with London’s underground River Fleet and a spooky trip into the sewers were just part of the fun. All that stuff about the river demanding blood? I was expecting Peter Ackroyd to get a credit at the end! See my review here of London Under.
