The plot centered around Dr. Mark Sloan (played by Dick Van Dyke), a renowned physician who occasionally worked for the local police department as a consultant, and who could not resist a good mystery or a friend in need. Those cases often involved his son, Detective Steve Sloan (played by Barry Van Dyke). Helping him was his friend Norman Briggs (played by Michael Tucci in seasons in 1-4), a hospital administrator. Also assisting Dr. Sloan, were his colleagues, medical examiner/pathologist Dr. Amanda Bentley (played by Victoria Rowell) and Dr. Jack Stewart (played by Scott Baio in the first two seasons), who later left and was replaced by a new resident, Dr. Jesse Travis (played by Charlie Schlatter from season 3 onwards).
A program similar in name and theme aired on CBS from July to September 1960. Diagnosis: Unknown starred Patrick O'Neal as pathologist Daniel Coffee, who worked with the police detective, played by Chester Morris, to solve unusual cases. Martin Huston played the handyman, Link, and Phyllis Newman portrayed Doris Hudson. The program was a summer replacement for The Garry Moore Show.

Famous quotes containing the word plot:
“But, when to Sin our byast Nature leans,
The careful Devil is still at hand with means;
And providently Pimps for ill desires:
The Good Old Cause, revivd, a Plot requires,
Plots, true or false, are necessary things,
To raise up Common-wealths and ruine Kings.”
—John Dryden (16311700)

They carry nothing dutiable; they wont
Aspire, astound, establish or estrange.”
