Exit Strategy

Series 15 - Episode 3 Exit Strategy



It’s a ho-hum case of the week, as a stakeout goes awry and the prints of a long-believed-dead detective are found at a crime scene. But never fear, because tonight’s B-plot is of far greater interest. Ducky (David McCallum) is being honoured at the University of Edinburgh and wowing the students with the grisliest stories from his mortuary slab. He also gets a tempting offer that might result in his colleague Palmer being left to fly solo in the lab.

The only distracting aspect to this storyline are the Scottish accents – it’s like the guest stars have been listening to tapes of Hamish and Dougal from I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.


Torres goes on a stakeout with Metro PD, but when his partner mysteriously disappears, he and the NCIS team find themselves investigating evidence from a decade-old murder case.
