So the other doctors got their own plotline in this one. That’s good. It makes them more believable characters if they occasionally do things without Dr. Meagan Hunt (Dana Delany). Still, why they had to refer to Hunt’s encyclopedic medical knowledge to solve their little mystery instead of, I don’t know, looking stuff up at a library, I am not sure.
This episode is loaded with information about surgical procedures and deep vein thrombosis, so it is not a waste of time. And we learn from Dr. Brumfield (Windell Middlebrooks) that a two month wait is required before a doctor can ethically date an ex-patient.
Which brings me to what really bothers me about this show. I have been to a few doctors in the course of my existence, and none of them have been obese. There is a good reason for that. Doctors know better. House said it pretty well when he pointed out that “there are no elderly obese people” (I paraphrase a bit, but the sense is the same). And then there is the matter of Dr. Hunt’s shoes.
Have you ever seen a doctor go to work in heels? Again, doctors know better. They tend to wear shoes, at least at work, that are good for their feet. I have never noticed wither Dr. Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) in RIZZOLI AND ISLES wears heels, and that is probably because the show does not usually include closeups of her legs.
But it was nice to see Minuet again. And it was a very good mystery.
BIT OF TRIVIA: Dana Delany was in a car accident involving a bus just before shooting the pilot for BODY OF PROOF, and broke two fingers. The bus driver reportedly asked for her autograph.
