Synopsis

Medicine, mystery and mirth. Diagnosis Murder is a lighthearted one-hour mystery series starring Dick Van Dyke as Dr. Mark Sloan.

Sloan is a good-natured, offbeat physician who occasionally works for the police department as a consultant.

Busy treating patients and teaching young doctors at Community General Hospital, Dr. Sloan still finds time to assist his police investigator son, Steve.

Every week, Dr. Sloan stumbles across murders, either acting in his role at the hospital, aiding the police as a medical consultant, or just plain dumb luck.

An amateur sleuth, Dr. Sloan combines his medical knowledge with keen analytical skills to solve the toughest cases that have confounded the police.

Working with Mark and Steve are Amanda Bentley, a pathologist at Community General who now works as a medical examiner for the LAPD; and young doctor Jesse Travis.
