Bradford Dillman is perfect in this strange but interesting episode
17 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In one of the most bizarre episode in the entire 'The Big Valley ' series, this show takes a dive into the macabre world of a psychopath doctor set on killing people for a deed many years ago. And with Bradford Dillman playing the evil doctor, the entire story plays out well. Without a perfect cast for Doctor James Beldon this show could have been unfortunate. But with Dillman as the lead this hit all the bases to make for a surprising and interesting show.

Dr James Beldon is the new young doctor in Stockton and is well traveled and well versed in the customs of the world. And with Audra seemly sweet on the doc there is not much that could go wrong.

In the mean time Sheriff Madden is investigating several strange deaths were a person was hung with a rope and hands tied behind them. And at each death, a note was left with some clue about the killing. Just so happened the last note named Victoria Barkley as the next victim.

Victoria has been ill recently and with the Barkley Ranch on high alert they send for Doctor Beldon. The viewer knows that Beldon is responsible for the deaths but the Barkleys have all the faith in him. He is able to get access to Victoria and also Audra. Will the Sheriff finally link the crimes to a death that occurred many years ago before any harm can befall Victoria or Audra - or will the Doctor leave his calling card with the two women?

A strange story for a western that could have fallen like a large rock. But instead, with the acting of Bradford Dillman, this episode comes across as a story that will entertain for many years to come.
