Episode guide
Part Of A Whole
The Rock, Part Two

The Rock, Part One was the first episode of the tenth series of New Tricks.


Official BBC Synopsis

Lane's future at UCOS is threatened by a death in custody which emerges from his past.


  • This was the first episode to end on a cliffhanger, being concluded in The Rock Part 2.
  • Steve McAndrew's comment about Gerry "munching on a robo-stogie" appears to be an in-joke related to British comics (much like most of the character names in Part Of A Whole and a coupe in The Little Brother). it is a reference to Carlos Sanchez Robo-Stogie, a character from the 2000 AD strip Robo-Hunter.
