Still has the knack, 3 April 2010
Author: Boycemaxblues70 from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A great and somewhat surprising return to excellence. Yes the storyline may rely upon the personal affairs of a main character but the build up, linkage and pace are straight out of the classic episodes from previous seasons. As ever in a superior episode the context for what takes place is rooted in previous character relationships. This is important because up till now the problem in this series has not been the story lines but the lack of depth in the main characters since Jerry Orbach left and Sam Waterston was kicked upstairs. The hope for the future comes from the superb acting of Jeremy Sisto. In this episode he dominates in the first episode that really gives him any real opportunity. The series also needs Linus Roache to fill Waterston's boots with purpose. Too early to opinionate so far this series but his character's risk taking and independence from colleague loyalties in order to win bode well.
