Storyline

Mannix is hired by attorney Noah Otway to find out why someone tried to kill Otway's client, Dr. Graham Aspinall, a renowned surgeon whose specialty is removing tumors that are otherwise believed to be inoperable. Despite the doctor's denials that anyone has a motive to kill him, Mannix comes to believe otherwise when he barely saves Aspinall from a second attempt on his life. And Mannix discovers that there are several people who might have a motive to kill Dr. Aspinall -- including the second-in-command at his medical institute; the boyfriend of one of Aspinall's research assistants; and even his wife.

Good, but they made the people in this one just too difficult to be realistic.
16 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting episode because Joseph Campanella guest stars. And why is this so particularly interesting? Well, during the first season of "Mannix", he worked for a detective agency and Campanella played his boss! Here, however, he plays an entirely different person--Dr. Aspinall.

Following an attempt on Dr. Aspinall's life, his attorney, Mr. Ortway (Burgess Meredith) contacts Mannix and offers him the case. Ortway, however, is a bit cagey and annoying and it's a wonder Mannix took the case. What's a bigger mystery, however, is why he stayed on the case. After all, Aspinall was a horse's butt--and was about as pleasant as a brain tumor!! He refused Mannix's help and was a jerk. Now this might have made some attempt at first, but when there's a second attempt on Aspinall's life and he really didn't know who was doing it and why, it simply made no sense at all why he worked so hard to get Mannix off the case. I would sure welcome the help if someone was trying to kill me!! What follows is a good episode with an interesting motive but it's hindered because too many people are like Aspinall's character--they behave in ways that don't make a lot of sense. As a result, it was a disappointing reunion for Campanella and a mediocre episode at best.
