Decent whodunit entry
9 September 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Episode 8, "The Sorcerer" is only an average entry, but above par for this series. Colonel March receives a queer complaint from murderous husband John Cusby (Robert Adair) who accuses his wife's psychoanalyst (Gerard Heinz) of being an evil "witch doctor" plotting her suicidal demise. When the good doctor winds up stabbed to death in a locked room by a hatpin belonging to Mrs. Cusby (Eileen Erskine), the only other person present, Inspector Ames (Ewan Roberts) naturally arrests her as the culprit. Also figuring are the doctor's unstable wife (Lilly Kann) and his assistant, Dr. Brian Hayes (Phil Brown, later seen in "Present Tense"), who amusingly refers to himself as "the sorcerer's apprentice." The guilty party is fairly obvious but the reenactment of the crime makes for a diverting solution. Robert Adair died August 10, 1954, shortly after filming was completed (he had previously worked with Boris Karloff in 1935's "Bride of Frankenstein").
