After librarian Ellen Barker is murdered investigating officer Grace Mackie contacts Danny, who had been in the same amateur sleuthing group as the dead woman. He suspects that Ellen was working on an old case but had come too close to the truth and been silenced. He works out that Ellen was trying to reopen the murder of Sally Tunstall, for which Barbara Haynes' son, now dead, was convicted. Danny and Nathan Wicks (fellow ex-cop and group member), visit Barbara and her neighbour Caroline Tate who, with her former husband Gabriel John Stokes and Sally, was a member of a commune. Stokes, now a government minister, confesses to an affair with Sally that destroyed his marriage and admits that Ellen visited him but left unharmed. When Nathan admits that he was infatuated with Ellen he is arrested but Danny follows another line to expose the double killer. Written by don @ minifie-1

So confusing you want to pull out your hair.

There are so many characters in this episode. UCOS starts investigation the death of a lady that Dan was good friends was named Ellen. Ellen either was a reporter or a cop, I could not figure it out. She was re-opening the case of a woman named Sally that was killed years ago. Mrs Tate says a man named Gabriel followed Sally out and was the last one to see Sally alive but you never find out Gabriele's last name to see who he is connected to in this episode. The new writers of the series mess everything up.

There are so many people involved. A high ranking politician named Stokes, some neighbors and DCI Grace Mackie from another police unit who knows Sasha and does not like her. Every body want to be in charge of this investigation. To much going on in these episodes with the new people.

Gerry moves in with Steve because there is a gas leak in his neighborhood. Gerry is bossy, angry and wants everything his own way. Steve is more lay back. For props they use 2 big pictures on the wall in the back wall of Steve's apartment one of a black man and another of a woman with big lips. It makes we wonder what the writers are trying to prove seeing as Steve is Scottish. Then in the bar where Sasha and Grace are talking and smoothing out their anger there is a big Christian Cross by the liquor bottles in back of the women in the center of the screen. At first the lights are off then they are turned on and the Cross looks bright red.

They promote crap in these new episodes, treat a painting of a black man with dignity, making homosexuals great artist but use the Cross in a tacky and insulting visual in the bar.

There is also more swearing of "sh_t" with Sasha and Gerry. Gerry swore "Christ s_ke" in episode 6 "Romans Ruined" which I delete.

New- New Tricks sucks.
