Synopsis
One of the most successful Canadian drama series of the late 1990s, Da Vinci's Inquest was also one of the CBC's slickest efforts -- not to mention one of the most realistic. Nicholas Campbell starred as Dominic Da Vinci, a former cop who worked as a police coroner in Vancouver. Like Quincy before him, Da Vinci used his official capacity to right wrongs, help those in distress, and in general boldly go where the "regular" cops feared to tread. In this he was assisted by a number of friends, business associates, and family members, who frequently found themselves in jeopardy, obligating the hero to effect a last-minute escape. Compared by some critics to the American TVer Homicide (albeit with a bit more melodrama), the series was created by Chris Haddock, who also wrote many of the 60-minute teleplays. Da Vinci's Inquest began its long and profitable CBC TV run on October 7, 1998. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

"Da Vinci's Inquest": A Canadian Gem by UnpaidCritic October 13, 2007 - 5:10 PM PDT

This is an intelligent, unglamorous Canadian cop show in which the coroner (Dominic Da Vinci) plays the lead role. It's a cold drink of water after watching empty glitz like "Miami CSI". It is, however, given to such Canadianisms as long discussions of how and why someone "fell into the drink" (body of water). If Greeen Cine gets this, we Americans will have a chance to absorb the nuances of our friends to the North.
