Medical Investigation

Show Summary

Neal McDonough (NBC's Boomtown) and Kelli Williams (The Practice) return to series television as members of a mobile medical team from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) who are summoned in a heartbeat to scope out -- and hopefully snuff out -- outbreaks of unexplained and fearful diseases. These specialists drop out of the sky anywhere and have government carte blanche to take charge when people start dying, which requires them to medically re-construct grisly events to prevent the next epidemic, plague or contagion. McDonough stars as Dr. Stephen Connor, the leader of the team whose take-charge attitude has enabled him to save the lives of millions, but in the process, has sadly cost the separated Connor his family. Williams portrays Dr. Natalie Durant, who specializes in pathology and epidemiology and works under the supervision of Connor, a man whom she respects, but is willing to stand up to in any life-threatening situation. The elite team also includes Troy Winbush (John Q.) as specialist Frank Powell, a quiet but intense medical inspector who is friends with Connor. Likewise, Powell works well with Dr. Miles McCabe (Christopher Gorham, Jake 2.0), the newest and youngest member of the team who tries to prove his "wunderkind" reputation is deserved -- but struggles to mature and keep pace with his colleagues in the big leagues. Anna Belknap (The Handler) also stars as the NIH's publicity liaison Eva Rossi, a woman who uses unconventional methods to keep the media at bay in the middle of a crisis.moreless

  • I just love Tv shows that have some sort of intelligence behind them. And this is defiantly one of them.

    Medical Investigations is a very imformative, and very mind working show. It may just be me but Medical Investigations is one of those shows that caught me from the beginning, I love a show that makes you think and this show makes you think. It starts with some sorta sickness and ends with a cure, and in the middle of show you can almost certianly never guess the twist, one of the better medical shows i have watched. Bring this show back onto TV please.

    I love the show. Although it was a drama. I like Stephen and Natalie because they complement each other. Neal and Kelli played very well in this series. I think tht NBC should have developed Stephen/Natalie relationship.



    Medical Investigaton made boring medical terminology into an interesting and appealing drama that got me hooked. For example,one of my favorite episode was the "Tribe", where a girl's family had small pox. I like when Natalie comfort the little girl, and I acutally cried. Since it is not on tv, I have to watch on youtube. Stupid NBC. I am still angry at NBC because the network likes to cancel their best shows. So I don't watch NBC anymore. Please the Medical Investigation back!!!moreless
  • How can they cancelled this series????

    9.1
    The series featured the cases of an elite team of medical experts of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) who investigate serious public-health problems, such as sudden outbreaks of serious diseases. Medical investigative duties are normally the responsibility of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health departments, while the NIH is primarily a disease-research and -theory organization. This lack of attention to the real world is thought to have contributed to the show's demise, though plenty of shows suspend reality for their premises.



    They should not cancelled this series. This is one of my favourite series. BRING IT BACK!!!!moreless

    I Loved this show it was informative and educational without being obvious and there was always plenty of humour too. There was always a different outbreak of some wierd disease and some of the places they got to travel to, and there was none of the soapy romance rubbish. Can't understand why it was axed it was great Bring It Back, even just the repeats. I loved Neil McDonough not only was he easy on the eyes he played his character well. At least Anna Belknap is on one of my favourite shows have the others fallen off the face of the earth.moreless
  • Medical Investigation is about a team of specialised doctors investigating medical outbreaks. A mix of CSI, NCIS & Criminal Minds.

    9.1
    It's a very interesting show. It's pre CSI. The fact that it deals with more medical stuff makes it more interesting. The actors played a bunch of doctors convincingly. It's a pity that NBC has stopped production. My guess is that there are only so few major medical outbreak ane can think of and after 911, more shows were written played around the incident. At times MI can be quite predictable but it's worth the watch.Thought they do have quite a number of hi-tech equipment. At least, it's got it's own plane and not a lear jet like Criminal minds. I would give it a 3 and a half stars out of 5.moreless
