It used to be that the medical examiner was a secondary character on cop shows, the guy with a quirky demeanor who would hang around dead bodies, cutting them up and providing info, just a couple of minute of screen time, if any at all. Aside from Quincy, MEs weren’t exactly the stars of a show and often forgettable despite their important part in cases. That changed with CSI and the rise of procedural dramas, giving the ME more time and standing out more.
While there are males shown a lot in that position, it’s no surprise producers have leaned toward the idea of the ME being a woman, often quite attractive. In some cases, they take a much bigger role in solving the crime, even the star of the show on some occasions. It may seem odd but something about a hot woman able to handle a dead body is intriguing and makes her stronger even with her attractiveness. With October being a creepy month, the time seems right to focus on ten women from TV so hot that they’re worth dying to meet.
10 Julianna Cox - Homicide
9 Melinda Warner - Law & Order SVU
8 Betty Rogers - Motive
7 Lanie Parish - Castle
6 Jordan Cavanaugh - Crossing Jordan
5 Alexx Woods - CSI: Miami
4 Megan Hunt - Body of Proof
3 Liv Moore - iZombie
2 Maura Isles - Rizzoli & Isles
1 Tru Davies - Tru Calling
Any character played by Eliza Dushku is automatically high on a list of “hottest” of any occupation. This cult 2003-05 Fox series had an intriguing setup: Working at the Boston morgue to make ends meet, medical student Tru sees a corpse look at her, whisper “help me” and suddenly Tru is thrust back in time to the previous day. She thus tries to use this “rewind” to stop that person from dying, a challenge as she often has no idea who the corpse is. This leads to adventures involving posing in a beauty pageant and other sequences that allow Dushku to dress up even while looking stunning in just jeans, top and white lab coat. She handles it with sassy humor and toughness while still driven by the confusion of time travel and trying to save those in need. The series sadly was axed early in its second season but retains a cult following thanks to its amazing leading lady who makes the reruns fun to watch multiple times.
