Storyline

Dr. Barry Mayfield is a highly successful and respected surgeon, but his patience leaves a lot to be desired. Nurse Martin becomes suspicious about his tools in sewing up internal organs in his most recent 'successful' operation (namely, his sutures). The good doctor kills her before she spills the beans, but Mayfield doesn't count on Detective Columbo's investigative skills, which quickly uncover a trail of murderous events.

Columbo TV Movies Were As Good As Guest Star
28 August 2001 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Columbo is one of the mainstays of 1970s American television that is one of the longest TV movies in the history of television. These mini films were good or great depending on what name actor was guest starring and what interesting plot was involved. Columbo:A Stitch in Crime(1973) features a wonderful performance by Star Trek actor, Lennard Neimoy who butts heads with the title character. The story is fasciating to follow and the characters are just good enough to make this one of the best in the Columbo TV movies.
