All good things come to an end, as they say. Which is why Crime Scene is marking the conclusion of BROADCHURCH with our feature on the third and final series. As well as joining the cast by the seaside, we learned about the cloak-and-dagger measures employed to protect the show from plot leaks. But while some heroes reach the end of the road, others just keep on going. So this issue we salute enduring characters and their creators: REBUS and IAN
RANKIN, HARRY BOSCH and MICHAEL CONNELLY, and DR. KAY SCARPETTA and PATRICIA CORNWELL. Plus, Jane Tennison’s back in the PRIME SUSPECT 1973 prequel, and we celebrate 30 years of MORSE on screen.
But as we’re getting all emotional over the final case on Broadchurch, this month the team and I have chosen our top TV endings. I’ve gone for THE SOPRANOS’ hotly debated diner scene. Does Tony die? Or does he just order another bowl of onion rings? You’ve got to admire a show that bows out in such enigmatic style. Enjoy the issue!
