Greg Wilson, a professional cameraman who accepted to work pro bono for Saint Clair's nunnery's school, where he himself was actually expelled, calls to meet and hand a videotape to the young superior, sister Michael, but is shot dead and the tape isn't found. When the convent's gardener, non-violent ex-con Vic Chandler, is arrested, sister Michael, who is legendary late cop Charlie Donahue's daughter Maggie, gets LAPD Detective Steve Sloan to double the police investigation. Dr. Mark Sloan, himself a cop's kid (and Steve's dad), accepts to enter the convent, posing as missionary father McGuiness, temporarily assigned as chaplain, to snoop for the tape and check -helped by Jack and Amanda, who tail a fake exterminator to a country club- on suspicious persons looking for it, including the Strega crime family and rude sister Regina from the diocese...

Sister Act!
16 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the final episode of season 1 of Diagnosis Murder, and Delta Burke guest stars as Sister Michael, where she witnesses the murder of a former student with a package that goes missing.

Turns out the parcel contained an incriminating videotape of corruption involving a member of City Council, and he wants the tape back big time! And he and his associates will do anything to get their hands on it.

Michael Tucci makes a brief appearance, but I can't recall seeing Delores Hall.

I like Diagnosis Murder a lot, and find it more engaging than Murder, She Wrote.
