Less here than meets the eye
29 January 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Second Sight" begins well as a story about a corneal transplant designed to restore the sight of wealthy blind philanthropist Marten Halvarssen (John Carson), degenerating into an all-too-predictable tale of diamond smuggling. Most disappointing of all is the excellent Carson, previously seen in "A Chorus of Frogs," sadly given little to do until the climax. Always a fine villain, Peter Bowles makes his series debut here, making time with Halvarssen's sexy fiancée (Judy Bruce), returning in "Dial a Deadly Number," "Escape in Time," and "Get-A-Way!" Also on hand as a shady doctor is Steven Scott, who previously appeared in the lost episode "Dragonsfield," and would go on to do a silent villain in "Split!"
