Jekyll, Hyde And Scotty
13 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde at a 1960s university.

It is nice to see "Scotty" just before doing Star Trek, a couple of episodes back we had William Shatner, so this season is started to feel like a weekly pilot to Star Trek (1966). And it has been reported that Gene Roddenbery was actually "around the set" when The Outer Limits was being made...so maybe Gene was getting ideas here.

But this is not Star Trek, it is The Outer Limits, with a touch of Jekyll and Hide, set in a university. Sound a bit different? It is.

The hour holds me from beginning to end, but the episode can only be called okay.
