Crime drama, starring Gary Sinise and Sela Ward.

Review

CSI fans were stunned to learn recently that the sun-drenched Miami branch of the franchise has been cancelled in the US. Horatio Caine has growled his last pre-titles one-liner, while CSI: NY was given an unlikely reprieve. However, when this season finale was made, they may not have known that.

It has a valedictory feel, by which I mean it’s indulgently emotional to the point you may need a stiff drink not to heave. That’s not to say it’s bad: for fans it’s unmissable, with a shock opening tableau. We pan through a pharmacy with pills rolling off the counter into... a pool of blood. But hang on – that bleeding body’s got a grey shirt on, just like Mac wears...
