Storyline

Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh is a forensic pathologist who lost her job with the Boston medical examiner's office because her passion for solving homicides frequently extended beyond the autopsy table. Years later, an old ally rescues Jordan from court-ordered anger management training in Los Angeles and rehires her to her former job in Boston. Jordan is still feisty and mercurial and a pain in the butt, but management tolerates her because she is good at her job. She and her father, a disgraced former Boston police detective, often solve crimes together by using a role-playing game they've played since Jordan's childhood. It goes: "You be the killer, and I'll be the victim and we'll figure out how this happened." The driving force in Jordan's life and career is the crime she took the longest time to solve -- her mother's murder. Written by A.B. Gilpin

love Crossing Jordan
15 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the first few seasons were so much better, and I believe the interaction between Jordan and her father was the best. Ken Howard added to Jordan, they complimented each other. Now it seems as though she is going nowhere and has no one. I don't necessarily think Ken Howard has to be in every show but he does add to Jordan's character. He was a essential part of the show. I find I don't have to see it every week anymore, because it is more about Woody and the silliness that goes on there. The story line between Woody and Jordan does not even make any sense and you can't keep up with it, one time it's there and the next you are wondering what happened and trying to figure out if you missed something along the way. The one thing I miss the most is Ken Howard on the show, he gave Jordan a base.
