Storyline

Former Vancouver City Coroner, Dominic Da Vinci, has just been elected Mayor of Vancouver. Opinionated, Mayor Da Vinci tries to implement some controversial policies for the City, including a red light district for prostitutes, safe injection sites for the troubled drug dependent population in the Downtown Eastside, and cross-training between the police department and fire & rescue. With the assistance of his hard working aides, Rita Mah and Sam Berger, Da Vinci is not averse to bending the rules or making back room deals to achieve his goals. But he must also work in holding together his caucus of City Councillors, and dealing with an uncooperative Police Chief who is at political and philosophical odds with the Mayor. Written by Huggo

The best depiction of political horse trading
27 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

I was a fan of both Da Vinci's Inquest and if anything this incarnation was even more intense and captivating than the first Da Vinci series. If you want to know how people wheel and deal and want to see how politics really must work, this show really delivered the goods.

In politics and in business (really the same thing) as many personal agendas as well as corporate and social interests as possible must be served and this show was all about that. I loved watching the trading of favours and compromises that occurred in order 'make the deals and move ahead' and both wanted and had to watch carefully in order not to miss the intrigue.

It was a thinking person's show and for those who wanted cerebral versus physical action this was the best show since The Sandbaggers. Perhaps Da Vinci's City Hall was too intellectual to survive the test of ratings alone and needed time to collect the requisite viewers before cancellation but I hope that viewers will find a way to watch and appreciate the 'dance' that it portrayed so well.

Well Mr. Haddock, what's next ?
