19. Even after "St. Elsewhere" went off the air, the crossovers continued. It shared characters with "Homicide: Life on the Street" on several occasions. In 1998,
Alfre Woodard made an Emmy-nominated turn as Dr. Roxanne Turner, who performed an assisted suicide by injecting a lethal dose of morphine. Ed Begley Jr.'s Dr. Ehrlich
also appeared on "Homicide: Life on the Street," but mostly in name only. One of the detectives on the show talked about being treated for his bad back by Dr. Ehrlich, and in the series finale, Begley made an onscreen appearance in the role.
