End Of The Line was the second episode of the eighth series of New Tricks.


UCOS reopens the case of an unidentified vagrant who was murdered on a tube train 15 years ago when the victim's son is discovered as a result of a DNA test. Although the team suspect the son acted in revenge for the vagrant abandoning his mother, things take a new turn when they find out the victim was best friends with an ex-soldier turned tramp, and that the son hired Roger McCue, a slippery private detective involved in another case investigated by UCOS.
