The Eleventh Hour (1962–1964)
- Summaries (2)
There were only 2 seasons of The Eleventh Hour. Both featured Jack Ging as Dr. Paul Graham, a passionate and caring young psychologist, working under the ægis of elder psychiatrists - first played by Wendell Corey and later Ralph Bellamy. While the first year often focused on Dr. Theodore Bassett and court cases, the second season was more concerned with private practice. The series shared a 2-part crossover episode with _ 'Dr. Kildare' (1961-1966)_ in 1963 and clearly used the same basic theme of wise teacher and young intern. Some of the most notable writers and actors in Hollywood participated in this show. Scripts were thoughtful and intense. Given the focus on guest characters, it felt more like an anthology series than episodic drama.
In it's first season, this program featured Dr. Theodore Bassett who was an advisor to the Corrections Department of the state. Most shows concerned criminal cases where he evaluated the mental stability of the criminals. In the second and third seasons, the shows featured Drs. Starke and Graham involved with both criminal cases and private cases involving people who were on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
