A real Stop All the Clocks episode: Big Bang acknowledges the passing of actress Carol Ann Susi by having her unseen character die in the show. With her growly hollerings from off screen, overprotective mother Mrs Wolowitz has inspired all kinds of imaginings in the viewer since the show began in 2007. And now, sadly, your mental picture of her will have to stay just that.

Appropriately, it’s her son Howard who takes the call that his ma has died. The scene is touchingly played and there’s a real sense of shock among the friends – suprisingly, it’s Sheldon who comes up with the right thing to say. It all happens in the last few minutes, rendering irrelevant all that has gone before.


Howard receives shocking news as everyone prepares for the re-opening of the comic-book store. Penny tries to teach Sheldon how to `let it go', but she is unable to follow her own advice when she learns something infuriating about Amy. Comedy, guest starring Nathan Fillion, with Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco.
