The popular TV series "New Tricks" returns to British screens this evening. Now in its tenth series, the comedy-drama about an eccentric group of veteran police detectives re-opening cold cases is back with two episodes which were recorded in Gib last year; filming locations included the Airport, the Top of the Rock, the Marina and Main Street.

Various Rum Rationers have been based in Gib or have visited it and so may enjoy the opportunity to see tonight's programme and next week's and to summon up old memories of time spent there! There is no guarantee that old treasured haunts such as the Donkey's Flip-Flop will feature, but the flavour of Gib is bound to be there.

Really? Nobody ever mentioned it.:wink:

SPB took issue with the taxonomy.

"Bases/Shore Establishments"? There's more to The Rock than the military presence...
Come now SPB, none of us ( Mods or not ) have ever excelled at getting something in the most appropriate catagory and we all have different ideas about what is most appropriate.

Anyway the military / naval presence is still strong in Gib, even if it is mostly pensioners in shorts and fading blotchy matelot tats. MoD Guard Service on the main gate though, not RN as shown in the trailer. Or was last year. Still, if it is good publicity.

Anyone else clock the Cdr with an upside-down rank slide on the port side?

The Daily Mail will be up in arms. Who has the keys to the outrage bus?

The Daily Mail 'readership' won't notice and it isn't the actor's fault.

But very wrong.

Having been bombarded on Faceache overnight with irrelevant dripping about the "Epaulette Episode" from (mainly ex-) matelots, I have to say that I am outraged by all this outrage... :evil: :roll: :sleepy:
