      Bill T After a few oddball Crime Doctor movies, this entry in the series, save for the end, which you knew was coming a mile away, is pretty pedestrian. The CD is trying to figure out why a man with some amnesia problems (that's not REALLY explained all that well) is suddenly murdered. but why was he shot with a carnival air gun?? That's the big clue giveaway, and so the doctor figures through the clues, while George from the Honeymooners helps him out as the Police Captain. It's great the doctor has someone to bounce ideas off of and at least they seem equal, some thing the Doctor needed in some of the other entries in this series. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
