Storyline

Shortly after Mark and Seven meet their neighbor Randy Wolfe, an attractive hyper-kinetic who never finishes a course and drops jobs 'boared' in a matter of days, she runs to them screaming to have found a dead mime on her bed, but the corps is gone when they get there - realizing a six of her her house number was crooked looking like a 9 she bursts in at that beach-house's owner; when the dead mime washes up the shore the next morning, the start is given for her surprisingly enterprising and effective part in the permanent sleuths' investigation which apparently has a link with car part thieves.

Rachel York is great in this!
22 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

This had to be one of the funniest episodes ever written for Diagnosis Murder. Rachel York as Randy Wolfe brought great comic timing and chemistry to the show. Her quirky but lovable pain in the butt really got under Steve's skin! I understand this was a pilot for a spin-off series. I really wish it had materialized. I could just see her taking on different characters to solve murder cases - like a younger, hipper, sexier Jessica Fletcher. I suspect the plan for the show was to move from city to city, maybe even country to country, so that Randy could have ended up interfering with but ultimately solving murder cases in exotic locales. I'll bet they would have had her clash with handsome detectives in every police department she encountered. I hope someday soon Rachel does land a TV series. She deserves to be the star in her own show.
