A "sexy, brilliant" Boston medical examiner. Despite a checkered career, Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh goes above and beyond to solve cases.
Executive Producer and Creator Tim Kring was at first reluctant to cast Jill Hennessy as the impulsive, abrasive Medical Examiner Jordan Cavanaugh, knowing only her work as the straight-laced Assistant District Attorney Claire Kincaid on Law & Order (1990) and as Jacqueline Kennedy in Jackie, Ethel, Joan: The Women of Camelot (2001). Agreeing to meet for breakfast, Kring was embarrassed to discover the restaurant he had chosen was closed when they arrived. Kring started to apologize, but Hennessy, unfazed, said, "Dude, who gives a shit? We'll go someplace else." Kring recalled thinking, "Oh, my God, this is Jordan."
He will be preserved until his condition is reversible.
Dr. Nigel Townsend: His condition is dead.
Mr. Hummer: Man, you people are like a broken record.
Throughout the series, the Boston Police Department is shown to be driving Dodge Intrepid cruisers. In real life, the BPD drives Ford Crown Victorias.
