Trivia

This TV movie had a troubled production history. It went before the cameras in 1990 with a script by Ian Sutherland and David Duke directing, but problems with the script and with the weather (the script required snow and it was shot during a mild winter) led to the production being scrapped. Various attempts were made to create a workable script and resuscitate the project that failed because the CBC - who had reportedly spent several hundred thousands of dollars on the production already - wanted to be able to use the footage already shot. Ultimately, a solution was found with a new script by Malcolm MacRury and the production, now directed by George Bloomfield was able to be completed a year later. See more »

"Wojeck" was the prototype for "DaVinci's Inquest".
6 February 2005 | by (Red Earth, Saskatchewan) – See all my reviews

With the passing of actor John Vernon, I am reminded of the great work he did on the CBC series "Wojeck". I was a mere child when the series originally aired in the 1960s but I remember my parents watching the series with great anticipation. When this TV movie came out nearly 30 years after the original series premiered, I was quite impressed. Steve Wojeck was a strongly developed character, blowing coroner colleagues Quincy and Da Vinci out the autopsy room. Vernon was obviously still attached to this character he played decades before. The TV movie "Out of The Fire" seemed to have touched a nerve with other viewers as I remember CBC airing the old black and white reruns later( I think it was during an NHL lockout or some stupid thing like that). This abrasive yet intelligent medical examiner proved to be the prototype to the currently popular Dominick DaVinci from "Da Vinci's Inquest". It seems John Vernon is more responsible for the creation of DaVinci than Vancouver major Gordon Campbell(both share Saskatchewan connections.) If you've seen the old "Wojeck" shows, this TV movie is worth a watch in all its colour and splendor.
