NCIS cast react as news of Theresa May’s fandom reaches the US

NCIS is the seventh-longest running prime-time drama in US history and is currently filming its sixteenth season. But fans are panicking today that their favourite crime drama may have reached the end of the road after robotic Tory Prime Minister Theresa May destroyed its credibility by telling a journalist that she liked to relax by watching the show.

Fans were not the only ones dismayed. Sean Murray, who plays IT expert McGee in the show was, fittingly, the first to pick up the news from Twitter:

David McCallum, the Scot whose character Ducky is one of the programme’s most cult characters, met the bombshell with typical British reserve but couldn’t contain himself completely:

Pauley Perrette, who left the show recently, was reported to be horrified at the impact on its legacy, but found time to comfort the still-distraught Murray:

Mark Harmon, whose character Gibbs heads the NCIS team, was reportedly beside himself:

Former regular cast member Michael Weatherly found the news difficult to believe, but then the implications began to dawn on him:

Emily Wickersham, who joined the cast more recently, is reported to have been so shocked that she drained of colour and became near-catatonic as she tried to process the shock information:

But Cote de Pablo, who played Israeli agent Ziva, probably summed up the response of most of the show’s millions of fans worldwide by refusing to accept it as authentic:

This is, of course, humour – shouldn’t have to say it but we do.

But the appalled reaction of many UK fans of the programme appears to be entirely real.

Comment:

Seems Theresa May can drain the joy from anything.

  1. Imagine how bad I felt when I learned my birthday was the same date as May’s. Librans are supposed to be decent, well balanced and believe in justice. So much for astrology.
