Sam McCloud is a Marshal from a Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police. His keen sense of detail and detecting subtle clues, learned from his experience, enable him to nab unsuspecting criminals despite his unbelieving boss.
Quincy and Sam are working as Coroners. Inspecting dead people they often see facts that don't match the theories of the police how or if really they were murdered. Written by

It originally debuted during the final season of The NBC Sunday Mystery Movie. When the show did well in the ratings NBC decided to upgrade it to a weekly series, especially since it looked like The Sunday Mystery Movie would be canceled. It's place in the rotation was assumed by the new show Lanigan's Rabbi (1976), which was canceled with the others at the end of the 1976-77 season. Quincy and Columbo (1971) were the only elements of that series to be spun off on its own. See more »
It has struck me that despite the implausible pairing of Quincy with much younger women, the clashes with the management and the police, this show covered some pretty controversial topics for a 30 year old mainstream show:- * Teenage alcoholism * Elder abuse * Mental health issues * Legislation for lief jackets on plains * Drunk driving *Public health issues such as food contamination/pollution Yes it can be cheesy but I still find many of them watchable and find the range of issues covered impressive for the times. I also think it's quite cool that Mark was actually a technician not an actor who is now a leading DNA expert!
