New Tricks: Father's Pride

When a camera and film belonging to Stuart Sharpe, a photographic lab assistant murdered in 1987, are discovered in the toilets of a Soho pub, the team of unlikely crack detectives enters the glamorous, but murky, world of modelling to reinvestigate the young man's killing, as the drama continues.

After the film has been tested and processed, the team discovers two images that stand out from the standard christening and wedding shots – a junkie shooting up and a long-lens shot of a couple kissing. However, it is not the images found on the film that raises eyebrows, but the traces of sperm. The motive at the time of the original investigation was thought to be robbery, but the retrieval of the camera and film would suggest otherwise.

Stuart's brother, Kevin, a paparazzi photographer, identifies the shot of the couple kissing as one of his own pictures of footballer Denny Clacy. But who is the junkie featured in the other shot and what links the two images?

Gerry Standing's daughter, Emily, joins the team when she turns to Det Supt Sandra Pullman, rather than the man she believes to be her father, to help her fulfil her professional ambition. Apart from feeling snubbed, Standing isn't convinced that Pullman is the right role model for Emily as he doesn't want to see his daughter sacrifice her personal life for the job. But is Pullman about to prove him wrong about her life being all work and no play, when she becomes close to former model Chris Parr during the course of the investigation?

Meanwhile, Brian Lane starts to unravel emotionally and psychologically. Even by his normally eccentric standards, Lane's behaviour and fragile state of mind is alarming.
