The big news in this season has been the arrival of pit-bull prosecutor Sonya Paxton, played with a snarl by Christine Lahti. Paxton is merciless, overbearing and great fun – not least when she merrily derides the SVU as a bunch of slapdash lefties who keep letting rapists and murderers off the hook. Tonight it spirals into enjoyably over-the-top courtroom melodrama. But we begin with a man waking to find a naked woman bludgeoned to death in his apartment.

About this programme

4/24. Benson and Stabler investigate when a man calls the police after finding a dead woman in his bed, claiming to have no knowledge of how she got there. When the victim is identified as a doctor who works at a clinic where abortions are carried out, it emerges that her life had been threatened in the past. Crime drama, starring Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay.
