Did You Know?


The EMT that Tru meets on her first night at the morgue may have been purposefully named "Marco" in homage to the children's game "Marco Polo". When Tru hears a noise and goes looking through the deserted morgue, she calls for "Marco", the traditional signal for someone hidden to yell back "Polo!" See more »

A promising start.
21 June 2008 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

Tru Davies wants to be a Med student and ends up being a morgue assistant to save money. Her life is pretty ordinary. She has a brother who gambles too much, a sister who does drugs to cope with the pressure of the job, and a father she rarely speaks to since her mother's murder.

On her first night on the job she "meets" Rebecca Morgan who appears to be a murder victim. Suddenly the deceased person asks for help and Tru finds herself waking up to repeat the previous day.

Unfortunately no-one can help our hero and she must work it out on her own. Tru discovers that Rebecca may have been murdered by a previous boyfriend, or perhaps a business man she has been having an affair with.

In the end there is an interesting twist and it all ends well. Along the way Tru is able to help her brother avoid a beating and provide words of encouragement to her sister.

Tru calling has been done before. We all remember Quantum Leap. Although this series is slicker.
