“I shot my best friend’s father,” says Jane Rizzoli as this third season opens, reminding us that when we were last in her company, she’d just opened fire on Maura Isles’s mobster dad, Paddy.

The fact that he’s taken a bullet doesn’t do wonders for Jane and Maura’s relationship. But there’s plenty of well-plotted police procedural action to go with the sniping, even if lines like “don’t bust my balls” come straight from the well-thumbed handbook of TV-cop clichés.

About this programme

1/15. Jane and Maura's friendship suffers in the aftermath of Paddy Doyle's shooting, and Jane's relationship with Agent Dean comes to light. Crime drama based on the novels by Tess Gerritsen, starring Angie Harmon.
