Very different from the series! Still a good story.
20 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Oh, boy, is this every different from the shows in the series and the first 3 TV movies which were prequels. This one is shot entirely on site in some very small town. It does not look like any set I have ever seen. The staff is all in the little town and there is not one second that they are in a hospital.

There is a good suspenseful script and all the actors do a good job. The ending will be a surprise. I expected there to be more Van Dyke's but there were only 4 this time.

Well done but just very different. I guess the hospital set had been torn down or redressed for some other show and they did not have access.

For a D.M. fan, it is a must see. Just one more to go and I will have seen every episode and all 5 movies. Say goodnight, Dick.
