Yeah I don't envy the task of the guy coming in, and in a lot of ways I think the writers have made a rod for their own back by killing Matt instead of just having him leave, it makes the audience more likely to resent the new guy as humans are irrational creatures, especially about religion, politics and TV.

Although perhaps I speak to soon and he'll be Jimmy Smitts to Jamie's David Caruso. :P

Lets hope he doesn't spend his csi ep taking of his sunglasses before every dramatic exposition moment!

You may have a point re: killing off a character vs. writing them out. Of course, I'd also argue this is just one of many factors exacerbating this particular situation. (See also: a) the theory I mentioned before that the short nature of British telly seasons amplifies the tendencies for fandom-prone audience members to cling to characters, particularly in a procedural, in a way they might not otherwise; b) the particularly wonderful chemistry that Jamie and Brad had together, c) Bambi's shitty batting average for survival. ;) )
