      Bill T Fun and crazy Crime Doctor movie that has the good doctor trying to find out who killed a diabetic man by trading his insulin with poison! Wacky mystery commences, with the the good doctor going blind, a mortuary, disguises, and all sort of odd things. This series is certainly getting weirder and better as they go along (maybe owing to William Castle directing these few that he did direct) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
