Product Description

Product Description

Vancouver coroners, pathologists and homicide detectives inhabit a murky world as they attempt to solve the mysteries behind the unnatural, accidental, or suspicious deaths committed in the city's back alleys and bedrooms. At times selfless, at times grudging, they all have agendas and history, passion for their work, and ambition for their futures. Charismatic, controversial and mercurial Vancouver Coroner Dominic Da Vinci (Nicholas Campbell) is the pivot around which this complex world spins.

Gemini Award-winner Nicholas Campbell stars in Da Vinci's Inquest as the controversial Vancouver Coroner who, working with homicide detectives and pathologists, speaks for the dead to protect the living.

Amazon.ca

The crackling Canadian police procedural Da Vinci's Inquest combines the best elements of popular U.S. police procedurals like CSI, Crossing Jordan, and Law & Order--with a little throwback to Quincy for good measure. What makes Da Vinci's Inquest so compelling is the performance of lead actor Nicholas Campbell, a cop turned coroner who tells anyone who'll listen, and lots of people who won't, that his job is to represent and look after the dead. Season 1, which debuted in 1998, follows Campbell's Dominic Da Vinci through the gritty side of Vancouver, navigating serial murders as well as extreme dysfunction in his own life. The focus on Da Vinci's personal life--his tumbles off the wagon, the torture of his ex-wife's involvement with a colleague--gives the series more heart than most blood-and-guts crime series. The show and Campbell have won several Gemini Awards (the Canadian Emmys) for the nuance and intellect that keep viewers engaged, even as they sense ominous turns of events about to unfold. Mystery fans can't ask for more. --A.T. Hurley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
This may well be the best show out there today. It's a police procedural about a Vancouver coroner, Dominic Da Vinci, and his daily routine. But it's also about his friends and allies: Leary, Shannon and Kosmo in the Homicide Division, Chick the Crime Scene Investigator, Zack the traffic cop, his secretary, Helen. And it's about the dark side of Vancouver. If you loved Homicide: Life on the Street, this is your kind of show. If you love great writing and acting, this is most definitely your kind of show. It has storylines and characters that really hook you in for the long haul. And Nick Campbell (Da Vinci), one of the most celebrated actors in Canada, is backed up by some of the best actors in the business. Even better, though he's in every episode, the other characters get their time in the sun, too. It's not just a one-man show.
My main complaint is...where's the rest of it? Season seven just finished. Season eight has been confirmed and a spin-off show is in production. So, why is only season one out on DVD? Some more extras wouldn't hurt, either. I'd happily buy the rest of the seasons as is, and the quality of what you get is fine, but some commentary from the writers and/or actors would be fun, too.

I wrote to Alliance Atlantis today inquiring about the release of Seasons 2 - 7 of Da Vinci's inquest. I've included their response below... It's awesome news!

(and for all you DaVinci City hall fans, please write CBC to tell them to bring back the series!!!)

This is a really great series and I wish I could see it here in the states as I'm hooked now from Season I. CSI and Law & Order are good too, but the characters are the main attraction not necessarily the murders or the who-dunnits. The mysteries are more like real life where you don't always find out what happens and the bad guy doesn't always get caught and tried. When is Season II on dvd?
In response to a previous review, the set includes 13 episodes on 4 dvds with french and english subtitles.

I first heard of this series from a review on the website, [...] if you search for Da Vinci on the site, you can see their review of the full series. I purchased the first season based on that review and I'm very pleased. This show is excellent! If you are a fan of television programs such as Prime Suspect, Homicide or NYPD Blue, you will enjoy Da Vinci's Inquest.
The main character, Dominic Da Vinci, is an investigator for the Coroner's office; his job is to investigate the circumstances surrounding the victim's death. He works closely with both the medical examiner and the detectives on the homicide squad. The interaction of all the characters makes for a rich mix of personalities. The first story arc spans three episodes and it does a fine job of establishing the cast and the feel for the series. Subsequent episodes introduce and usually resolve the mystery in one show, but the consequences continue to affect the storyline throughout the season. Minor plot threads run through the whole season to flesh out and provide motivation for the characters.
Viewing the first season is like reading a great novel - you don't want to stop it because it's so engrossing.
I would highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys thought provoking television mysteries.

Alliance Atlantis has indicated that they have no plans to release seasons 2-7 of Da Vinci's Inquest on DVD.
This is a travesty, given how excellent this series is.
I urge all fans to contact Alliance Atlantis and ask them to change their minds.
Perhaps now that the series is in syndication in the U.S. they'll change their minds...

Absolutely the best TV-show ever. Sadly, especially for us not living in Canada (but instead e.g. in Finland) and not (yet) having the possibility to watch all the seasons (only 1-4 have been shown here), only season 1 is on DVD. So please, please, please, hurry up with the rest of the seasons
