The third series of Catastrophe ended tonight (April 4), marking the last appearance of the late Carrie Fisher on the sitcom.

The beloved actress and screenwriter tragically died in December last year after wrapping filming on the Channel 4 series, which served as a poignant tribute.

Tonight's episode covered themes of death, grief and alcoholism, as Sharon struggled to cope with a tragic loss and Rob had a relapse with his alcoholism.
