Jack Klugman returns as the unyielding medical examiner who refuses to accept that a case is closed until he says it’s closed. An unintentional investigator, and always a thorn in the side of the local police (not to mention his boss), he pursues the truth at all costs with justice at the helm of the prevailing answer. This show dealt with many a tragedy and issues of the day in its time. This time around our good doctor places an eye on some rather suspicious deaths, intense social issues, the controversial fraternity hazing, toxic waste and bio-hazards unleashed upon the city, the question of gun control, and the ever looming drunk driving situation. A great piece of criminal investigation meeting the relentless world of forensic science in a clash for the search for truth wherever it may be found.
