Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Fans of the American series Law & Order and CSI will find much to like in the Canadian procedural Da Vinci's Inquest, starring the terrifically understated character actor Nicholas Campbell. But the series is more polished and nuanced than its American cousins, with much less explicit explication--which means a more enjoyable, and challenge, viewing experience. And what mystery fan doesn't love a challenge? Season Three of Da Vinci's Inquest finds our hero, Vancouver coroner Dominic Da Vinci, embroiled in solving random, gruesome crimes, as well as navigating office politics and trying to salvage his personal life. The writing of the series is superb, blending all the elements above into a rich, layered hour of television. No detail is too small to escape Da Vinci's attention--the unexplained death of a "perfectly healthy" man in an elevator (and what floor button he pushed before collapsing); the time of day a young boy happened to be on his bike on a certain street corner--except perhaps in his own spotty love life. The series takes great advantage of the location shooting in Vancouver, showing that city's beauty, and sometimes ragged underbelly, with equal relish. (An American viewer is also struck by how few gunshot deaths Canadian police investigate--there are virtually none.) Extras include some behind the scenes clips, which show the detailed sets and location shots, handled just differently enough from standard Hollywood fare to be captivating to even the most diehard TV fans. Campbell, as ever, is a gem as the world-weary but devoted detective, whose terse, dry sense of humor is sometimes lost on even those closest to him, though never on the viewer. Watch how he deftly anchors a pivotal scene by simply wryly tossing off "Ah, great." Campbell, and Da Vinci: Ah, great. --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

Complete third season of the multi-award-winning crime drama

"Gripping" --The Seattle Times

As the crusading and charismatic coroner for the city of Vancouver, Dominic Da Vinci has a mandate to determine "the manner and cause of death" in any suspicious accident or crime. To carry it out, he relies on experience and gut instinct—as well as the cops, forensic specialists, and medical experts with whom he works. Together, these investigators probe back alleys and suburban bedrooms to cast light on the shadowy means and motives for murder.

Though Da Vinci’s Inquest has drawn comparisons to CSI and Law & Order, no other series blends tough, no-nonsense detective work and sophisticated forensic science with such style. Season 3 finds Da Vinci snubbed for promotion, bedeviled by a new bean-counting boss, and haunted by demons from his past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Acorn Da Vinci releases are top-notch! May 26, 2008
Format:DVD
Anyone looking at this Da Vinci DVD set shouldn't hesitate to buy it. It's one of the finest shows ever produced, period. This is for those folks worried about reviews of the earlier season sets put out by Acorn, where some have claimed that their Da Vinci sets are censored or edited versions. THIS IS NOT TRUE! I have rented the earlier, Canadian DVD release of Da Vinci Season 1, and I own the Acorn releases of Season 1 and 2. They are not censored or edited in any way! I'd hate to see misinformation like that lead to people not buying these sets, thereby putting future releases in jeopardy. I'd love to see Amazon remove those misinformed reviews of the earlier season sets, but since I doubt that will happen (they have better things to do, I'm sure), I hope this will quell peoples fears. Go ahead and buy these sets, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars East side stories July 4, 2008
Format:DVD
Auteur Chris Haddock's brilliant and anguished love letter to Vancouver's crime-ridden Downtown and East End continues as his alter ego Dominic DaVinci, based on real-life Vancouver coroner/crusader Larry Campbell, continues his quest to "speak for the dead" -- find justice for people who are victimes of crime, yes, but also the indifference of society. Season three introduces the wonderful Kim Hawthorne as detective Rose Williams, who joins the investigative team (not without some tension), and amps up Irish actor Gerard Plunkett's role as Da Vinci's sometime ally/sometime obstacle chief coroner Bob Kelley. Again, it's hard to think of a better ensemble cast on any TV show, led by the world-class performance of Nicholas Campbell as Dominic. Don't miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars ACORN - Get With the Program! March 11, 2009
By Pepper
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Addendum to original review: 1/2/10 - KONG is running DaVinci's Inquest on Saturday nights in Washington State.
----------------
ACORN HAS BROUGHT "INTELLIGENCE" OUT ON DVD - BOTH SEASONS. SO WHY NOT DAVINCI'S INQUEST AND DAVINCI THE MAYOR?
CBC is rebroadcasting both series and the audience is still there. Chris Haddock has a following and ACORN continues to fail to respond to that.
You've read all the rave reviews about this series. And they're right - it does get better and better.
CBC should bring back anything produced by Chris Haddock - and why not bring DaVinci back?
And furthermore - why not put "The Quality of Life" on DVD as a movie?
It was a great show, ran one night, and those who love DaVinci will love "Quality....", if they missed that one opportunity to view it. Are you listening, ACORN? Chris Haddock's shows have a following and you wouldn't be putting the 2nd part of "Intelligence" out on DVD right now if you didn't realize that. I find it ridiculous that you don't just put out a pack of all the DaVinci's Inquest shows and another of DaVinci the Mayor. Putting one season out every year is balmy!

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as cop-dramas can get. November 12, 2008
Format:DVD
I just finished season 3 and I feel that it tried to break the mold set by seasons 1 & 2. (Both seasons 1 & 2 were bookended by two-part serial killer episodes.) I detected a hint of an attempt to make the show more "hip" by some producers by sexing up the transitions between plotlines and between commercial breaks. Thankfully that bit of stylized goofiness was tamped down by episode 4. Personal lives get more attention. Most of the mysteries aren't solved or solved ambigously. There are two great episodes that center on traffic fatalities. Another outstanding one happens in "real time" as Da Vinci tries to score dope for an addict/suspect. Can't wait for all seasons to be available. I find it also entertaining to catch Battlestar Galactica cast members guesting. This is the show that was doing it better and more "real" 10 years before the CSI's, the SVU's, and (good lord) the Dexter's.
P.S. to Acorn or Haddock or whoever is deciding the release dates of this thing... Do I really have to wait another 5 years to get to "City Hall" and "Quality of Life?" C'mon people... Up it to two-a-year at least.

5.0 out of 5 stars Davinci Season 3, give me more August 4, 2008
By Michael
Format:DVD
13 great stories, most with no clear cut ending, that stimulate the imagination and leave one thinking about, "what happens now?" What happened to the greiving father who still does not believe that his daughter died accidentally or what happened to that two year old boy once he reached five did his mother kill him too in some "accident" or was she the wretched victim of bad luck that she claims?

In any case the writing is excellent and the acting, particularly from those actors playing the survivors of their loved one's accidental or intentional death is both breath taking and painful to witness.

The series as with the previous 2 is five-star wonderful. I am only hungry for the next series to be released as soon as possible
