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

Marc Scott Taylor was originally hired as a technical advisor but became a semi-regular cast member because he could operate electron microscopes and other complex instruments. It was more cost effective to give him a recurring bit-part than to train the actors to operate the equipment convincingly. His role was greatly expanded in an episode in which "Sam" had been poisoned and "Mark" helped Dr. Quincy save his life. See more »
I watched "Quincy" when it was on the first time round with my mum, dad & sister. I didn't quite get it the first time around as I was a young lady in those days. However I was fortunate to see it on digital TV in England, and have realized the true, raw, emotion that is Quincy, coroner & all-round good guy.
Quincy is insightful. Before all these "CSI" & "Cold Case" programmes, there was Quincy. Was he one step ahead? Let's just say he was on the ball. He knew the truth behind the lies, the evil from the good and the down-right guilty from the innocent. When he had a hunch, you'd better believe he was right. Had a crime to solve? Quincy was your guy.
Quincy get what he wants. If there was someone who was holding something back, Quincy had enough on them to solve the case & get the job done.
Quincy was a man's man. With soul. He lived & loved like a man who's time was almost up, and it showed. He solved the case when no one else thought it could be done. He felt for the deceased & gave them a voice when everyone else thought it had fallen silent.
Quincy has charisma. There was no other man on television who had a hand that was as good with a woman as it was with a dead body.
Quincy cares. Sure, Quincy was a man's man; he would be at the bar buying a round for the guys, but he hurts like the rest of us. He just kept it all inside.
So there you have it - the man & the myth that is Quincy. There will never be another... all those copy-cats? Well the men want to be him, & the women want to be WITH him. Quincy, you're the best.
