Nick and Worrick discover the first of three corpses in a firm where electrocution is used for the killing and processing of poultry for human consumption; the firm had been the target of animal rights actions which damaged it badly, and some of an obsessive scale model makers works are found at three crime-scenes.

Did You Know?


Catherine's giggling fit at the beginning was quite genuine. Marg Helgenberger found the scene so hilarious she couldn't control her laughter. See more »


Izzy Delancey: Did you know that everyday in the United States more chickens are killed than all the people in the Rwandan genocide? Now, you may argue, "Izzy, African people are not a food source,". Well you're missing the point entirely. Cruelty is cruelty whether the victim be a chicken... or a malnourished African.

Maybe the finest CSI episode of all
20 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I'm just watching series 7 again. I know what happens, I know this isn't the last word on the miniature killer...

...but I was still spellbound. This episode contains so much, it's hard to believe they fit it into a single programme. There is tragedy, comedy, tragicomedy, black humour, horror, mystery, philosophy, suspense.


Anyway, there is a surprise confession to the miniature killers. It is both eloquent and painful to watch. There are parts of what the person says that I find myself not-so-secretly agreeing with, in my middle aged cynicism:

"My life's been hard, but I don't complain. I never expected better. ... Spend any amount of time around people, you get your heart broke. Treachery, hypocrisy. Promise of love. Look into the mouth of a person, and you'll find lies wriggling there like maggots waiting to grow wings. The world has gone mad"

And then the chilling last words - with which, of course, I do not sympathise...:

"A man could kill from sunup to sunset, and still his work would never be done"

...but as we learn later in the series, all is not what it seems. Series 7 of CSI is awesome.
