The classic crime series Diagnosis Murder revolves around Dr. Mark Sloan (Dick Van Dyke), the Chief of Internal Medicine at Community General Hospital that often offers the LAPD medical consultation in their toughest cases. He solves these mysteries with the help of the recently promoted Lieutenant Detective Steve Sloan, his son (Barry Van Dyke).
Throughout the series, Dr. Sloan is not only assisted by his son, but also by his friend Norman Briggs (Michael Tucci) who works as a hospital administrator, medical examiner and pathologist Dr. Amanda Bentley (Victoria Rowell) and, new to Season 3, hospital resident Dr. Jesse Travis (Charlie Schlatter). Through their combined medical and criminal analysis, there’s no case this team can’t crack.
Season 3 sees the team race to find an antidote to a deadly virus developed by a biomedical corporation, investigate a drive-by shooting at an urban school, search for a murderer mid-flight after the sudden death of the co-pilot and mysterious, unconscious state of the pilot, and many more action packed cases.
Murder strikes in all scenarios this season, on thin ice, on the catwalk, in the family, by the busload, and even country style! A fiery season finale leaves the audience and Community General hoping for a resurrection from the dead… which might be just what the doctor ordered.
Diagnosis Murder Season 3 starts on August 17th at 7pm.
