Plot summary

Author: James Lawrence ( from United States

Kimble is leaving a migrant worker job where he is known as "Doc," a former ambulance driver. An attractive couple persuades him to come and look at their sick little boy.

When Kimble arrives at the remote cabin, he learns that the "couple" was a woman and her brother-in-law. The real husband Ralph Simmons, played by actor Claude Akins, is a tough ex-football player. The three of them have kidnapped a small child for ransom. Jimmy, unfortunately, suffers from hemophilia and his internal injuries pose severe medical danger. Kimble himself faces danger as he tries to maneuver around the crooks and see to Jimmy's safety.

3/31/64: "Never Stop Running"

Author: schappe1 from N Syracuse NY

They changed the opening narration for this one. It's no longer an "irony" that Kimble is innocent. Now "laws are made by men, carried out by men and men are imperfect". Somebody must have complained about the law being "ironic".

Kimble is a farm worker again but because he's called "Doc", he's pressed into service to administer to a hemophiliac boy who has been injured. He senses something wrong and boy is it: the kid has been kidnapped and the authorities are trying to find him, which means they will also find Kimble. Kimble winds up escaping with the kid, (he manages somehow to start a car with a cigarette: I didn't know you can do that), and tries to get the boy to a hospital before the gang can recapture them or the cops can catch up with all of them. It winds up with a rather absurd fight scene between Kimble and the leader of the kidnappers, (Claude Akins) outside the door to the hospital. Nobody comes out to see what the commotion is. This allows Kimble to be on his way to the next adventure while the boy is discovered by the hospital staff.

Tatum O'Neal's Mom, Joanna Moore, plays Akin's girlfriend. She would get along with Madlyn Rhue's "Sophie" in the previous episode. They have the same heart rate.

Once again, Richard Kimble does good...

Author: MartinHafer from Bradenton, Florida

During the course of the four year run of "The Fugitive", Richard Kimble (David Janssen) did more than enough good works to qualify for sainthood! Although on the run from the law, he so often seems to walk into situations where he is desperately needed and you can depend on him doing the right thing...even if it might mean him getting caught. This is exactly what happens in "Never Stop Running".

Some folks say they are looking for a doctor and ask Kimble to come with them...though he insists he isn't a doctor. But they've heard rumors and know that he knows something about medicine and take him with them. The sick person they are taking him to see is a child...a kidnapping victim who is a hemophiliac. Can Kimble save the bleeding kid's life AND save himself and the kid from these kidnapping scum.

This is a good, solid and enjoyable episode. Kimble once again does the right thing and miraculously everything seems to become just fine...a trademark in these shows. Well worth seeing.
