Narrator: [Opening Narration] News of a miracle finds David Vincent and draws him to a small New Mexico town. Here, according to legend, the Virgin appeared to two Indian children and wept, her tears forming the spring known as Las Lagrimas de la Virgen, the stream where, years later, a young girl was presented a gift by a vanishing stranger. A gift that is, in fact, the heart of an awesome new weapon aimed at mankind.

You Might Expect Richard Kimble To Walk In
29 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

In a run down New Mexico town, Vincent is after a rock the aliens want, but he must deal with Church-types who have the wrong idea about the rock.

Not a great deal of science fiction is going on in this hour, instead it looks like QM's The Invaders has pinched a script from the recently axed QM's The Fugitive but added a creepy alien nun to keep the sci- fi element going.

In a nutshell: if you are after sci-fi thrills, you may struggle with The Miracle, but if you want a Fugitve-type experience you will like this episode.

The Miracle can hardly be called powerful television, but it was not meant to be, these kind of hours take viewers back to more simple times. At the end of the 51 minutes the viewer feels like they have spent time with interesting poor people in a town of the 1960s.

The only negative about the episode is the town itself, an obvious backlot set that has been seen in 100 western TV hours...when a 1960s car drives down the main road it looks a bit odd because the town set is in the 19th century.
