Ben Matlock is a very expensive criminal defense attorney who charges $100,000 to take a case. Fortunately, he's worth every penny as he and his associates defend his clients by finding the real killer.
Dr. Mark Sloan is a doctor at Community General Hospital, and he is a consultant for the police department. His son Steve Sloan is a detective for the department. He and his father, along with emergency room resident Dr. Jesse Travis and Dr. Amanda Bentley, who is the pathologist at the hospital help to solve some very strange murder cases in Diagnosis Murder.

Norman Briggs, the character played by Michael Tucci, was scheduled to be murdered by a man seeking revenge against Dr. Sloan in the 4th season finale "The Murder of Mark Sloan". Tucci begged producers not to kill him off and they agreed. The following season he was no longer on the show and no explanation was given as to where his character went. See more »
For the first few episodes, I thought it was wierd to see Van Dyke play a doctor,but this show has really become one of the few shows that I will watch anymore. It has gotten a lot better since Baio left the series, and the episodes just keep getting better and better. Dick and his son have a wonderful camaraderie, and the mysteries and characters work very well. The Matlock crossover was my favorite, as are the cameo episodes where all the familiar stars return. I hope this show lasts as long as Dick wants to do it.
