Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Peter Dunlop ([[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0084153/ Nic Bishop]]) [[spoiler: dies]] in the second season finale and is replaced by Tommy Sullivan ([[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0885090/ Mark Valley]]). Both men are handsome, square-jawed, have similar build, similar voices, and the characters have similar personalities. Peter was introduced in the pilot as having an ongoing working relationship with Megan; Tommy was given a built-in history as an OldFlame, so was able to drop into place without a hitch.

* NoSympathy: Megan is the character trait variation, although she certainly has her moments of empathy. Her daughter and ex-husband appear to have a certain amount as well: The former lying to their child to make Megan look heartless and badmouthing her when she's actually doing something nice, the latter quick to shoot Megan down any time she makes an effort.

Megan Hunt (''Dana Delany'') was a brilliant neurosurgeon until a car accident caused unknown neurological damage that makes her hands numb occasionally. After she accidentally killed a patient, she decided to switch jobs and become a medical examiner -- because, after all, "I can't kill anybody if they're already dead."

* ActorAllusion: Arriving at the victim's residence in ''Love Thy Neighbor'' Megan mentions she used to live in a cul-de-sac like this, and that there's more to the place than meets the eye. At the end she tells Ethan he couldn't handle a desperate housewife. Delany was on ''Series/DesperateHousewives.''



* CastingGag: Creator/ChristinaHendricks plays the love interest of ''Geoffrey Arend'''s character -- her husband.



* FollowTheLeader: Has been criticized as being a copy of ''Series/{{Bones}},'' ''Series/{{Castle}},'' or ''Series/{{House}},'' in that it has an overly blunt know-it-all medical examiner who has a partner of the opposite sex with some UnresolvedSexualTension.
** Or reaching further back for an even more direct example, ''Series/CrossingJordan,'' which even includes the AmateurSleuth element.
*** Reaching even ''further'' back, there's ''Series/{{Quincy}}.''
*** [[Film/FightClub Everything's a copy of a copy of a copy.]]



* PlayingAgainstType: If you are used to seeing ''Tim [=De=]Kay'' as the honest and good Peter Burke in ''Series/WhiteCollar,'' his turn as the creepy-ass religious fanatic father in 3x03 will give you a start.
** ''Jeri Ryan'''s Kate Murphy is pretty much a polar opposite of [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Seven of Nine.]] Subverted in that Ryan has played many roles as professional women.

* AmateurSleuth: Technically, she's only supposed to examine the bodies, not solve the crimes. But she doesn't care.
