Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh is a forensic pathologist who lost her job with the Boston medical examiner's office because her passion for solving homicides frequently extended beyond the autopsy table. Years later, an old ally rescues Jordan from court-ordered anger management training in Los Angeles and rehires her to her former job in Boston. Jordan is still feisty and mercurial and a pain in the butt, but management tolerates her because she is good at her job. She and her father, a disgraced former Boston police detective, often solve crimes together by using a role-playing game they've played since Jordan's childhood. It goes: "You be the killer, and I'll be the victim, and we'll figure out how this happened." The driving force in Jordan's life and career is the crime she took the longest time to solve -- her mother's murder.Written by
Executive Producer and Creator Tim Kring was at first reluctant to cast Jill Hennessy as the impulsive, abrasive Medical Examiner Jordan Cavanaugh, knowing only her work as the straight-laced Assistant District Attorney Claire Kincaid on Law & Order (1990) and as Jacqueline Kennedy in Jackie, Ethel, Joan: The Women of Camelot (2001). Agreeing to meet for breakfast, Kring was embarrassed to discover the restaurant he had chosen was closed when they arrived. Kring started to apologize, but Hennessy, unfazed, said, "Dude, who gives a shit? We'll go someplace else." Kring recalled thinking, "Oh, my God, this is Jordan." See more »

Any way to tell her age from the autopsy?
Sure, I'll just cut her open and count the rings.
You could have simply said no.

This is a very compelling series that hooks you with the dynamics of the characters joined with the realistic quality of the plot lines. If you are an addict of forensic shows, this one is sure to satisfy! I am a huge fan of the REAL forensic shows without all of the fluff, pomp, & circumstance. This show delivers at every level meeting the need for realism in its plots and the cutting edge forensics involved in solving the cases. They keep you longing for more with the depth of the characters and the tensions, both friendly and sexual, between them. From the very first episode, the quality of casting is apparent as you have no trouble feeling that this is a group that has had it together like a real American "disfunctional" family of friends for a very long time. It successfully ties in past experiences to present episodes without leaving new viewers in the dark as to what is going on. With last weeks premier episode for 2007 (being the first one in quite some time) it is sure not to disappoint and they have certainly not lost their creative edge!! To the writers, producers, and directors: keep on doing whatever it is you do......it certainly works!
