  • The quintessential Dr. Mark Sloan - witty, charming, a little eccentric and dangerous

    9.2
    This is a strong episode right off the bat, as it puts Mark on the "outside" from the police and challenges his credibility. His usual support on cases is removed because of the holes in his story, and his continued investigation makes him look crazy. Of course, Mark continues his dogged pursuit and eventually solves the mystery.



    This is the Mark Sloan I love. He comes across as a little eccentric as he interviews suspects, but he's no senile push-over. He stares down threats and intimidation and is committed to find the truth. I love when he asks one of the suspects to stop dancing around the obvious. Dick Van Dyke has a hint of danger lurking under his surface and it is effective when he lets it creep to the surface.



    The other strength of this episode is that rather than figuring out "whodunnit," we need to figure out "how," or more specifically, how did the killer hide the body? The final reveal is great, and it makes for one of the better early "Diagnosis Murder" episodes.moreless
