    SPOILER ALERT

    Okay, my husband and I are a bit behind times.... We just watched the episode called Sunday where Dr. Carson Beckett dies. Does anyone know why he was written out of the series? Did the actor, Paul McGillion, wish to leave and that is why he was written out.

    Also the theme music. Does anyone know what the lyrics are to the haunting theme song? Or are there any words?

    In advance, thank you as Ted & I will go and watch the next episode.....

    It was the writer's decision (I believe Martin Gero wrote the episode) but the fans did riot severely after that episode.

    yea, it was certainly NOT the actor's (Paul) decision to leave the show.

    Thank you so much for those replies re: the death of the character.

    Any comments on the Theme Song?

    Well, we just finished Season 4 and now have to wait for Season 5 to finish. Sigh.

    I had forgotton about him coming back so was pleasantly surprised when we saw him "What took you so long?" ha ha

    Is espisode 20 the absolute last episode or will there be a 21, 22, 23.... made for tv movie...

    I do so enjoy the 2 series!

    Not sure if the movie will be a part of season 5, but if it's to tie up the series before the stand alone movies. So, it could be a part of season 5, but don't quote me on that.
