Interesting drama
12 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have seen many of Jaclyn Smith's TV dramas, and the majority of them are extremely well thought out. This however, doesn't seem to carry that trait on. The script in particular is extremely challenging. Jaclyn portrays Willis in a very believable manner - her life will change forever. The actual terrifying moment is done without going to the extremes; the title says it all really.

Although the actual perpetrator turning up on her operating table seems a little clichéd, we can actually believe Willis' emotions: will she save his life or not? I imagine the majority of viewers may have decided upon the second option.

We are then thrust upon a battle of wits, with our heroine doctor's career on the line and the 'victim's' family and friends wanting justice. And this is the more interesting part of the film - who deserves the justice? The answer is made perfectly clear later on.

The Rape of Dr. Willis never shakes off its cheapish TV image and the ending was a little subdued for my liking. Nevertheless, Ms. Smith always brightens up my screen and will simply make viewers smile and enjoy what this film has to offer.
