Series 11 - Episode 11 Homesick



Christmas is coming, and the team is winding down. Tony’s off to Jamaica, newbie Ellie Bishop is going home to Oklahoma. But the holiday plans are put on hold when there’s a sudden outbreak of serious illness among the children of navy and marine corps personnel. The number of cases soars, and everything else must be put aside – including an important meeting for Jimmy and an unexpected visitor for the director.

We’re almost in House territory, but with an empowering speech from Abby about the true meaning of Christmas and Dickens’s Christmas Carol references throughout, this ends up as cosy as Abby’s ginger biscuits and Bishop’s mum’s cinnamon cake.


The team investigates when a mysterious, fast-spreading illness strikes children from military families. While Gibbs tries to determine the cause, Abby and Jimmy partner with the Naval Medical Research Centre in the hope of delivering a cure before the holidays. Mark Harmon stars.
