David McCallum’s Scathing Criticism of NCIS After Dropping His Role as ‘Ducky’
Renowned actor David McCallum has gracefully expressed his concerns regarding the current plot of CBS’s NCIS, which could potentially impact the beloved cr1me drama’s loyal fan base and production team. This statement was made in light of his departure from his iconic role as Ducky.
In the year 2022, the highly anticipated 20th season of NCIS graced our television screens, marking a new chapter in the beloved cr1me drama. With the departure of the esteemed and long-standing actor, Mark Harmon, the show has undergone noticeable transformations. Such changes have been so significant that even one of the show’s most seasoned actors expressed a sense of unfamiliarity upon returning to the set.
NCIS is an exquisite portrayal of the Naval Cr1minal Investigative Service’s diligent officers who strive to balance their professional and personal lives while unraveling the most heinous cr1mes. Under the guidance of the esteemed Leroy Jethro Gibbs, portrayed by the talented Mark Harmon, this team thrived until his departure in 2021.
Currently, Alden Parker, portrayed by Gary Cole, commands NCIS and is joined by a group of newly recruited officers. The sole exception is Timothy McGee, played by Sean Murray, who predominantly worked alongside Leroy Gibbs, portrayed by Mark Harmon, in the thrilling cases showcased until his departure.
Recently, Timothy McGee was paired with another beloved NCIS character, Ducky Mallard, portrayed by the talented David McCallum. Unfortunately, following his appearance in this episode, the actor has expressed some criticism about the current state of the show, which has caused disappointment among both fans and the show’s creators.
