Product Description

Emmy award winner Dick Van Dyke stars as Dr. Mark Sloan, a dedicated doctor who dabbles in detective work in DIAGNOSIS MURDER. Caring and compassionate, Dr. Sloan enlists the help of his police detective son, Steve (Barry Van Dyke) whenever he suspects one of his patients is the victim of foul play. And he won’t rest until the bad guys are put to bed - permanently! Working alongside Sloan is pathologist Amanda Bentley (Victoria Rowell). For star performances and classic "whodunit" suspense, the right prescription is DIAGNOSIS MURDER.

One of America's most beloved TV actors, Dick Van Dyke, proved his longevity and acting chops in Diagnosis Murder, as Dr. Mark Sloan, chief of staff at L.A.'s Community General Hospital, as well as a consultant for the police department on confounding murders. The show was originally conceived as a Murder, She Wrote-with-boys, to tap into the late '80s and early '90s wave of spunky-senior shows (Golden Girls, Matlock et al.). But Van Dyke's versatility and charisma drew fans of all ages, and the first season shows his breadth as an actor. The mysteries range from the fairly typical (a beautiful patient surrounded by intrigue has amnesia--or does she?) to the gritty and offbeat (Sloan's son, played by Van Dyke's real son, Barry, gets too close to a gang of corrupt cops, with near-disastrous results). Through it all, Van Dyke's Sloan is avuncular, thoughtful, warm, and serious, but conveys enough wry humor and cheekiness to take considerable advantage of Van Dyke's comic timing. One episode in this season, "Inheritance of Death," features Van Dyke playing multiple roles--young, old, men, women--in a conniving family grasping for the inheritance of an ancient family member, and it's laugh-out-loud funny. Another standout in the cast is Scott Baio as Sloan's earnest sidekick, Dr. Jack Stewart. The boxed set features all 19 episodes of the first season, plus the episode of Jake and the Fatman which introduced the character of Dr. Mark Sloan. --A.T. Hurley

This Detective Drama Show fisrt telecasted on October 29th, 1993 until May 11th, 2001 for a total of 8 seasons and 178 episodes.

Dr. Mark Sloan, a very busy guy, was the Chief of internal medicine at fictional Community General Hospital in Los Angeles. Not only did he treated patients, he also teach young doctors at Community General. Over all that, he maintained a private practice and served as a special consultant to the L.A.P.D. and that gave him the most pleasure.

Working with Dr.Sloan were:

* Jack: a handsome young resident at the hospital who did double job as Mark's legman.

* Amanda: also a resident at Community General specialized in pathology.

* Steve (Dr. Sloan son): a detective on the L.A.P.D.

The cast for this show are:

*Dr.Mark Sloan ..... Dick Van Dyke

*Dr.Jack Stewart (1993-1995) ..... Scott Baio

*Amanda Bentley Livingston ..... Victoria Rowell

*Det. Steve Sloan ..... Barry Van Dyke

*Norman Briggs (1993-1997) ..... Michael Tucci

*Nurse Delores Mitchell (1993-1995) ..... Delores Hall

*Dr.Jesse Travis (1995-2000) ..... Charlie Schlatter

*Nurse Susan Hilliard (1998-1999) ..... Kim Little

*Dr.Madison Wesley (1999-2000) .....Joanna Cassidy

*Alex Smith (1999-2001) ..... Shane Van Dyke

*Det. Cheryl Banks (1999-2001) .....

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Show EVER! July 23, 2006
I, like others who wrote before me, am THRILLED to finally see Diagnosis Murder on DVD. PLEASE put the other seasons on DVD as soon as possible!!!! It is one of the BEST shows ever developed.

Think about it---Dick Van Dyke and the creators were geniuses in their day. They were the pre-cursors to all the CSI shows and others like it. They did the forensics and solved murders, but in a much less gruesome way. Diagnosis Murder is a G-rated show that solves crimes in a thought provoking way, without showing all the blood and guts all the CSI and other shows do. You can actually sleep after watching the show.

Dick Van Dyke and the cast are like a huge family (no pun intended since his son Barry has a lead role) and the camaraderie comes through to make for a very enjoyable and family friendly show. Young and old, cool and nerdy, single or married, people from all walks of life can and will enjoy this wonderful show.

Amazon, if you could pass along all the positive feedback to the producers, so that they can see how much people desperately want the other seasons on DVD, I think I speak for all fans of the show when I say, "we'd GREATLY appreciate it!"

To readers, buy this DVD and you won't be disappointed. The show is AWESOME!

4.0 out of 5 stars Murder the Doctor Wrote August 23, 2006
In Diagnosis Murder, Dick Van Dyke plays Doctor Mark Sloan.Head of Internal Medicine for a major hospital and an armchair detective. And unlike the TV show HOUSE, this detective solves crimes OUTSIDE the hospital. And he does it G-Rated without so much blood and gore as CSI or Law and Order..Think of this as Murder the Doctor Wrote! Its Pricesless

Van Dyke is no Rob Petrie in this one. He still has a friendly bedside manner and easygoingness that he has in the original Van Dyke show, but its not one liners and jokes that makes this shows. Its a friendly snoop that Dick brings to this show, like TV's Columbo, without the "MY WIFE SAID..., SIR".

The ensemble cast meshes together well. With dick's son Barry Van Dyke as Sloan's son Steve, Happy Days's Scott Baio as Dr.Jack Stewart, and Victoria Rowell as Amanda, the cast supports Van Dyke's witty detective style

an extra bonus, the DVD has the Jake and the Fat Man episode that introduced Van Dyke as the Dr Sloan.However the two hour pilot is not included in this set, nor is there an audio commentary (FOR SHAME). Would love to heard Van Dyke talk about an episode of two or even an interview with him

Its a great family series, Enjoyable

5.0 out of 5 stars This Boxed Set Is Great, But It Could Have Been Greater November 16, 2006
I'm glad the DVDs are finally coming out for this series. I'm biased -- I was a writer & executive producer on the show for several years and I've written the seven original DIAGNOSIS MURDER novels. My only complaint about this DVD boxed set -- beyond the lack of commentaries, deleted scenes, and other material -- is that they didn't include the TV movies that were produced and aired between the broadcast of the pilot (the JAKE AND THE FATMAN episode) and the premiere of the first season episodes. Hopefully they will include those movies as bonus materials on subsequent DVD sets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diagnosis Murder is my favorite show! June 26, 2006
I love this show!!! I can't wait for all of the seasons to be on DVD! I started watching the show back in 1993 with my grandparents so it's also very sentimental to me. Thank you for making the DVD, and keep them coming! :)

I think I have the first three of the Diagnosis Murders Series. I cannot imagine that I bought them without CC or subtitles. Do the movies have CC or subtitles?
