Storyline

Shortly after Mark and Steve meet their neighbor Randy Wolfe, an attractive woman who never finishes a course and drops jobs bored in a matter of days, she runs to them screaming about a dead mime on her bed, but the corpse is gone when they get there. Realizing that a number 6 of her house number was lopsided and looked like a 9, she barges in on that beach-house's owner and finds nothing. But 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 to car part thieves.

A great episode for Miami Vice fans
9 January 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I just saw this episode on TV whilst having lunch at home on a rainy January afternoon in London....

Being a Miami Vice fan, I loved the inclusion of a character called Sonny Burnett (Crockett's undercover name) which - at first - I thought was just an innocuous homage.

It transpires that the episode is shaped around an undercover operation, and they mention Miami Vice twice. For a chronic (some would say obsessed) fan of Michael Mann's seminal show, this was a nice touch!.........

Yeah I know, I should get out more!............

You know what though: DIAGNOSIS MURDER is really good!!!..........you gotta love Van Dyke!.........
