Law & Order: Special Victims Unit


Series 10 - Episode 4 Lunacy

Fri 31 May 10:55pm - 11:55pm 5USA


A female “floater” with mutilated genitals bobs up in the river. An obvious case for the SVU except, it turns out, there was no sexual crime – just a murder. But detectives Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson plough on with their investigations regardless. It takes them into outer space – or at least to the NY Hall of Science, where they meet Colonel Finley, a charming former Nasa test pilot (played in glorious Casanova style by a silver-haired James Brolin).


Stabler and Benson investigate the death of an astronaut whose body is discovered in the Hudson River. They identify two chief suspects - a drug addict who used the murdered woman's credit card and a man who was barred from the space programme after fighting with the victim. However, a shooting at the precinct jeopardises the detectives' chances of solving the case. Crime drama, guest starring James Brolin, with Christopher Meloni, Mariska Hargitay and Dann Florek.
