"One of Butcher's better efforts."

Author: jamesraeburn2003 from Poole, Dorset
4 April 2004

Glyn Houston's Inspector Harris races against time in order to find a blood donor for a little girl (of a rare blood type) who was knocked down by a truck while attempting to run away from her rowing parents (Zena Walker & Dermot Walsh). Possible donors include a convicted criminal awaiting his execution, an athlete and a man on the run from the police. This b-pic from poverty row specialists "Butcher's" is a remake of their own "Emergency Call" (1957) and is neatly directed by Francis Searle making it one of the better efforts from this company, although things are somewhat marred by the typical cop out endings that were typical of this kind of production.

on the coat tails of emergency ward ten

Author: malcolmgsw from london
24 July 2015

Emergency ward ten was the first hospital soap on British was a great success and inspired many limitations including this b feature.a young girl with a rare blood type is knocked down in a road accident.there are only 3 registered donors with her blood is a murderer awaiting execution,the second is an international footballer,and the third is a defecting scientist on the run.Flynn Houston is the detective charged with finding at least one.a fair number of obstacles are put in his way before he finally gets his man.a fairly routine thriller .some car chases and an attempt to liven things up at the end,a bit predictable.
