Surprise delivery
11 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was an absolute winner for the controversial Night Gallery series, and it appears on what I consider the best season, which is the second. It has that great, yet disturbing ending this show can be known for, and this one was a doozy; I'll get to the conclusion at the(ah-em)conclusion of this review. On a personal note, I recognized Larry D. Mann and Rosemary Forsyth from different Columbo episodes, and it was odd seeing them in the same episode from this series, but I digress. The eerie setting appears to be from foggy and dreary England, and we see a doctor teaching surgery to a group of students, while he dissects a corpse, but where does he get those corpses? We meet a couple of real slimy individuals who fetch the bodies for the good doctor at a price, no questions asked. A few folks, including an old, haggard woman screaming, "ya got me Charlie!" to the doctor about her recently deceased husband; suspicion is starting to mount on just exactly where the bodies come from, and doubt is being cast on the doctor. He and his little helper(and he is little)are slick enough to elude the police for now and other people too; he gets out of a jam because his newest corpse is a female, not the old man he was accused of stealing, and the police are satisfied for now, and he is off the hook. The next scene has the confident doctor lecturing his students about the art of surgery once again, and then he loses his mind as he turns back the cover of the sheet covering the body only to discover that it's his very own fiancé who was murdered by the men who were ordered to get a female body by any means. There's hardly any boring moments right to the very end of this fine episode, which wasn't too long.
