Day #12 - Favourite Director

There's no contest for this:

Tom Morrow.

As much as I eventually grew to like Jenny and now really like Vance, Tom Morrow will always be, for me, the definitive, best and my favourite NCIS Director.

Even though, sadly, we didn't see that much of him, what we saw was enough to show what a strong, formidable, forceful yet caring director he was. He supported his team completely, backing them all the way when it came to dealing with other agencies. He never 'threw anyone to the wolves'. He believed in and trusted his team; he knew they knew their jobs and didn't try to interfere.

And he is the only director whom Gibbs completely and utterly respected. He never called him 'Tom', it was always 'Director Morrow' or 'Sir', unlike Jenny (or 'Jenn' and he called her) and Leon. He would never have just waltzed into the director's office, again unlike he did with Jenny and does with Vance. In all his dealings with Jenny, I never once go the impression that Gibbs respected her as director. I think he respects Vance somewhat, but not as much as he respected Tom Morrow.

Also Tom Morrow knew exactly how to handle Gibbs; he knew how far he could let him go before he had to reel him in. He was stern but fair. He was there doing the job of director or NCIS, no more, no less.

He was a wonderful director - whom I still miss.
