Sexual harassment, charges of misconduct, death by auto-asphyxiation, sperm donation and good old crime and punishment. Yep, it’s just another day for the cops of NYPD Blue... Season four sees a load of new characters, which ensures Steve Bochco and David Milch’s acclaimed cop show remains upstanding and arresting viewing.

BEST BIT The multi-episode investigation into Simone’s shocking ending in the season finale.
