How much of what we see and hear is procedurally correct? What about all that medical jargon? Is it accurate?
nIn an early 1980s Science Digest article entitled, Among Forensic Pathologists, Quincy’s a Social Crusader, by Marvin Grosswirth, Mark Scott Taylor (QME technical advisor and actor) indicated, “When we get into the various lab procedures, we try as much as possible to do real procedures or at least a portions of real procedures…” He admits that one of the reasons he believes he was hired was because few actors have the dexterity and experience to perform any of the on-scene technical procedures themselves! Therefore, Mark was able to act out necessary shots “on camera” to maintain scientific accuracy, while preventing scenes from appearing “hokey.”nnnnn
