- Development Hell: Quality of Life was filmed and left on the CBC's shelf for a very long time, before it was unceremoniously dumped on the network with little promotion.
- Executive Meddling: The cancellation of DaVinci's City Hall.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: Acorn Media (the DVD distributor of the series) has no plans to release Seasons 4 to 7...or City Hall...or The Quality of Life, on the grounds of poor sales. This is surprising, considering that DVD sets were already printed and distributed to the cast and crew right after the series finished for good, and the fact that that for most of its run, Inquest was consistently the most-watched series on Canadian television.
- Screwed by the Network: For most of its seven-season run, Da Vinci's Inquest was the most-watched show on Canadian television. The second the show's ratings started to drop (when it relaunched as Da Vinci's City Hall, the show was yanked from the schedule. Better yet, a TV movie wrapping up all the plot threads from the series, The Quality of Life, was kept on hold for four years due to Executive Meddling, and finally dumped on a Friday night with no promotion.
