Review

NCIS does love a cliffhanger, and as it enters its teens (unbelievably, this is the US ratings juggernaut’s 13th season), here’s another one. We left Gibbs (Mark Harmon) at the end of last season at death’s door, having been shot by the young boy he’d been mentoring but who’d been turned by nasty global terrorist Daniel Budd.

Thankfully, though, he’s in safe hands thanks to a very chatty surgeon (Jon Cryer – which means there’s now a double Ducky on NCIS). But while out for the count, Gibbs is having vivid hallucinations and questioning his purpose in life. Meanwhile, the rest of the team must work fast if they’re going to avert Armageddon. Just another day at the office, then.

Summary

Gibbs fights for his life on board a US Navy hospital ship after being shot. Meanwhile, DiNozzo and Joanna Teague head for Shanghai, where they hope to take down the leaders of the terrorist group known as The Calling. Starring Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly and Mimi Rogers.
