Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Series 11 - 3. Solitary

Another procedural banquet for Saturday night, first with Special Victims Unit then with Criminal Intent. The good news is, Stephen Rea, who we’ve seen recently as an arch-baddie in Utopia, turns up in SVU as a suspect in the abduction of a young woman. Rea gives a terrific performance as an ambivalent character.

About this programme

3/24. When a woman disappears, her boyfriend implicates downstairs neighbour Callum Donovan, an ex-con who Stabler helped put in prison 19 years earlier. As the detectives investigate his alibi, Benson receives a phone call informing him the missing woman has been found in the Hudson river and that she is still alive. Guest starring Stephen Rea (The Shadow Line) and Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood).
