Storyline

When the philandering, drug-abusing wife of an arrogant plastic surgeon disappears, Detectives Goren and Eames suspect the doctor's earnest efforts to find her are bogus -- especially when they find he has a lover of his own. But even when the body of a decomposed woman washes ashore weeks later, the cops can't crack the doc's airtight defense -- and their only hope might be to turn his ego against him.

Trivia

"The Good Doctor" strongly appears to have been inspired by the real-life disappearance of Gail Katz-Bierenbaum from her Manhattan home in July 1985. After years of investigation, Gail's husband, the plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Bierenbaum, was convicted of his wife's murder in October 2000. Her body has never been recovered. See more »

One of my favorite episodes
13 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my all time favorite L&O CI eps. It was a nice change of pace. The detectives often spend a great deal of time of course gathering the necessary evidence to put the bad guys away. Sometimes however that evidence is just not there to be found... so they have to find a way to make the bad guy bury himself.

Robert Knepper as the doctor was wonderful... so arrogant and condesending you almost want to throw a brick at the screen. Good performance by Courtney Vance also at the end, getting the doc all worked up to where he's convicted by the jury not so much because of the evidence, but because he was such an detestable worm.
