Storyline

A hitch-hiker dressed in yellow oil skins attacks the driver of a car who has stopped to give him a lift. The car crashes and the driver fights with the insane hitch-hiker. It appears like the driver, though badly injured, has prevailed and is taken to hospital. The drivers wife subsequently learns that her husband has damaged his throat in the struggle and is unable to talk, she is also asked to identify the body of the madman. The body looks exactly like her husband and doubts begin to enter her mind as to which of the two is the killer. The only differences appear to be that the killer has rotten teeth and a claw-like finger nail. Who survived the fight her husband or the madman? Written by <dave@phillips0666.freeserve.co.uk>

A sinister doppelganger story from the man who made Dracula A.D. 1972
12 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another entry in the popular but short-lived Hammer TV series. This one features a doppelganger whose presence spells danger for his distraught wife: it's one of the more original episodes of the series, opening with a well-staged car accident and closing with the kind of creepy twist ending that works well in the best old-fashioned way.

The rest of the episode is slightly repetitive but intriguing, as we're left unsure as to whether the put-upon wife really is being haunted by an evil presence or whether she's losing her mind. The physical horror is limited to a long fingernail and a few facial scars on her disturbed husband, but the atmosphere is effectively unsettling and once the story picks up towards the end I was really enjoying it.
