Dr. Mark Sloan is a doctor at Community General Hospital, and he is a consultant for the police department. His son Steve Sloan is a detective for the department. He and his father, along with emergency room resident Dr. Jesse Travis and Dr. Amanda Bentley, who is the pathologist at the hospital help to solve some very strange murder cases in Diagnosis Murder.Written by
Before he became Chief of Internal Medicine and got involved in the police department, Dr. Mark Sloan was a doctor who served his time in the MASH unit. See more »
Dr. Mark Slone often undertakes actions which would result in evidence and investigations being compromised. Since he has never been a police officer, these actions could result in cases being dropped or overturned upon appeal. There is no way that a District Attorney would allow Slone and his colleagues to perform the actions that they do in the show. See more »
For the first few episodes, I thought it was wierd to see Van Dyke play a doctor,but this show has really become one of the few shows that I will watch anymore. It has gotten a lot better since Baio left the series, and the episodes just keep getting better and better. Dick and his son have a wonderful camaraderie, and the mysteries and characters work very well. The Matlock crossover was my favorite, as are the cameo episodes where all the familiar stars return. I hope this show lasts as long as Dick wants to do it.
