Storyline

Quincy is forced to go vacation by Asten and is replaced by a pretty young pathologist named Jerri McCraken. However, as this is going on city councilman Larry Bridges is found dead in the stairwell of the apartment building where his secretary, with whom he was having an affair lives, from an alleged heart attack. Quincy tries to help with the investigation, but is rebuffed by McCracken. However, when several inconsistencies are discovered she later changes her mind and goes to Quincy for help. During the course of the investigation they later discover that Bridges suffered an allergic reaction to penicillin that was mixed with a mouthwash he was using. Now they must find the killer before he (or she) gets away with murder. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Spin-Off?
16 July 2008 | by (Solihull, England) – See all my reviews

"New Blood" is a curious episode. Although it's not a end-of-season show, it has the air of Star Trek's "Assignment: Earth" in as much as it sets up an entirely separate TV premise (much as Gene Roddenberry - faced with the imminent cancellation of Trek two seasons in - came up with the character of intergalactic spy "Gary Seven". Meanwhile, Klugman's Quincy is almost entirely irrelevant and just mumbles from the sidelines. Something similar was tried on "Ironside", but the spin-off didn't spin far. Were the producers hoping to launch an entirely new show here, or was JK taking a few days off? If the latter, they missed the chance to get an intelligent female pathologist on screen 20 years before CSI.
