Ben Matlock is a very expensive criminal defense attorney, who charges one hundred thousand dollars to take a case. Fortunately, he's worth every penny, as he and his associates defend his clients by finding the real killer.

Although Dick Van Dyke was born in 1925, in the final season in 2001 it is shown that his character Dr Mark Sloan was born in 1937. However in the episode "Death by Extermination" from the second series in 1994 Dr Sloan describes himself as being in his sixties. See more »
We see Dr. Slone constantly ask his detective son to put out APB's (All Points Bulletins) or BOLOs (Be On the Look Out) to bring suspects and witnesses in. When found the police just walk up to people and place them in the squad car, taking them to the station for Steve and Mark to interview even though it's pretty clear they didn't want to come. If there is no probable cause for an arrest or an active arrest warrant, the police can't make you go anywhere against your will. Once in a while, a wealthy or educated person will assert this and ask a lawyer to be present but this is rare. See more »
If you say you won't watch Diagnosis Murder because you think it is a copy of Murder She Wrote. Then you should not dismiss this show just because of that. It is a great show with good actors. This show blends mystery, action, and humor. Dick Van Dyke is excellent as Mark Slone. Too bad the show is over but there is always repeats on Pax. If you haven't seen Diagnosis Murder then you don't know what you are missing.
