Storyline

Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh is a forensic pathologist who lost her job with the Boston medical examiner's office because her passion for solving homicides frequently extended beyond the autopsy table. Years later, an old ally rescues Jordan from court-ordered anger management training in Los Angeles and rehires her to her former job in Boston. Jordan is still feisty and mercurial and a pain in the butt, but management tolerates her because she is good at her job. She and her father, a disgraced former Boston police detective, often solve crimes together by using a role-playing game they've played since Jordan's childhood. It goes: "You be the killer, and I'll be the victim, and we'll figure out how this happened." The driving force in Jordan's life and career is the crime she took the longest time to solve -- her mother's murder. Written by A.B. Gilpin

User Reviews

Awesome new show
12 October 2001 | by iluvds9See all my reviews

This Jill Hennessey series about a Boston-area ME is exciting, interesting and believable.

Jordan Cavanaugh is intelligent, gorgeous and intriguing. The other cast members are also interesting and realistic, as are the plots.

Unlike Law and Order Crossing Jordan delves deeper into the character's personal lives--Jordan's close relationship with her retired cop dad (Ken Howard, the only cast member who attempts a real Boston accent) and her uncertainty regarding his new girl- friend. When working on an unsolved murder Jordan and her father role-play the possible killer/victim scenario to chilling effect.

I also enjoy the Boston-Irish based theme music.

Bravo to Jill, the writers, actors, producers, etc. I hope to see Crossing Jordan cross my TV screen for many seasons to come.
