Storyline

Police detective Steve Sloan believes that top manager Nick Osborn has killed his boss, trust-owner Russell Cord. His father, senior hospital doctor Mark Sloan, is convinced that his long-time patient Osborn is innocent and soon discovers three other top employees of the Cord Group who also had reasons for killing their boss. Pretending to be a medical police consultant, Dr Sloan starts investigating the case himself, supported by a junior doctor and a young female pathologist. Besides, the merry old doctor saves the life of a young street urchin and takes tap-dance lessons from an old patient. Written by Otto Oberhauser <Oberhauser@cc.univie.ac.at>

Goofs

Dr Sloan writes 'iatrogenic' on the blackboard and when he explains the meaning to his students he first points to 'genic' and says 'doctor' then he points to 'iatros' and says 'induced'. Of course it's the other way round! - no doctor practicing western medicine could ever make this mistake. See more »

Be careful
25 May 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is one of those shows which is only for the sort of person who takes great joy in watching a show where you can set your watch by the plot. If you loved Quincy, and went mad with joy when they repeated Dallas and the A-Team, then this is for you. Otherwise, it might be good for you to avoid this at all costs

Dick 'Yes, I can do a Cockney accent' Van Dyke plays a doctor (it's never actually made clear, at least in the episodes that I've watched, what he does whens he's a doctor). He seems to have been given his entire career off by a very caring boss who understands that its difficult to be a doctor and have a crime-fighting hobby at the same time.

Dick Van Dyke's moustache seems to play a separate character

The rest of the cast is basically constructed so that Dick can go about his caring-yet-stern crimefighting ways without it being too unbelievable. Mind you, with his 'son' in the program being the head of the LA homicide squad and his best friend being the county coroner, they really didn't put much effort into it

Like I said, if you like cheesy, over/underacted programs without much plotline, then this will be for you. Think of it as 'son of Quincy' and you'll have a pretty good idea

There's even an episode with Quincy in it, or so I'm told.......
