Gerald Keane did a gregarious job on writing this CBSRMT episode. I use the word "gregarious" because this is a story that fans can talk about since it's based on a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (who wrote SHERLOCK HOLMES) entitled "The Black Doctor." Doyle's work is a sociable topic, however, the shocking twist wasn't much of a surprise. The shocking twist is at the 33-minute 40 second mark. I give props to Norman Rose (as Dr. Eduardo Columbus) because any episode that he's in is always entertaining. Lloyd Battistsa (as the Defense General) and Robert Dryden (as Mayor Horace Greeley) were terrific, but Betsy Beard (as Susan Greeley) and Earl Hammond (as Matthew Greeley) were mundane. Betsy Beard acted too girly and Earl Hammond acted too much of a man-child. Jada Rowland should have played Susan Greeley and Russell Horton should have played Matthew Greeley. Now for E.G. Marshall, he explains this plot thoroughly, however, there's not much tension. The sound effects helped support the scenes, however, the music is way more mirthful. I use the word "mirthful" because you have to listen to the music tunes to enjoy this drama-mystery. The 5 best parts where the music plays is at the 5-minute 3 second mark, the 9-minute 40-second mark, the 11-minute 44-second mark, the 27-minute 17-second mark, and the 40-minute 38-second mark. I rate this 3 out of 5 stars. If you enjoy Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's work, check this episode out. Also, I recommend Ep. #0902-THE CAPTAIN OF THE POLESTAR.

I guess I hoped this would be better than it was seeing it was this story. The twist at teh end was ok but not very dramatica or no real "gotcha" effect.
