Ex-EastEnder Lamb joins New Tricks

There is a new face in New Tricks as former EastEnder Larry Lamb starts work on the long-running detective show.

The actor joined Nicholas Lyndhurst and Dennis Waterman on set in Ealing, west London, to film his first scene as retired cop Ted Case.

Larry, who played evil pub landlord Archie Mitchell in the soap, will make his first appearance in episode two of the new series and is a replacement for the outgoing Dennis who is leaving the BBC One show.

Dennis, who will appear in the first two episodes of the next series before leaving, follows former co-stars Amanda Redman, Alun Armstrong and James Bolam out of the show.

They were replaced by Denis Lawson, former EastEnders actress Tamzin Outhwaite and Lyndhurst.

Producer Myar Craig-Brown said: "Larry is a fantastic addition to the show and Ted Case will slot in perfectly with Sacha, Steve and Dan in the UCOS team.

"The stories for series 12 are absolutely classic New Tricks - a mix of gripping whodunits solved by witty, likeable characters that the audience can root for and identify with."
