Great follow-up to Series
12 July 2013 | by (Outside Hollywood) – See all my reviews

In the first made for TV-movie after the series ended, Dr. Mark Sloan is on the case again. This time, the case is close to home; a frantic call from his daughter Carol sends Mark (Dick Van Dyke) and son Barry (Barry Van Dyke) off to a small town to investigate her disappearance.

Upon arriving there, the townspeople deny ever seeing Dr. Sloan's daughter or her husband. Steve and Mark become very suspicious as they begin investigating the events leading up to the disappearance. Mark and Steve determine that Carol and her husband may have met a tragic end.

The film is full of suspense, intrigue and emotions driven by hatred, corruption and treachery. If you loved the TV series, you won't want to miss this follow-up movie; you will enjoy.
