Storyline

Margo Bentley's about her experiences hobnobbing with powerful people worldwide just might be a best-seller. Concerned about advance publicity, she advises her agent that she'll continue working in a hotel, under an alias. Hours later, she's dead, apparently of liver cirrhosis. Unmoved by Quincy's objections, Asten releases the body to a funeral home that quickly cremates it. Then Quincy finds a strange microorganism in her blood - something he's never seen before. One of Margo's friends gives Quincy the New York telephone number of her literary agent, but Quincy finds that avenue closed - by the days earlier death of that agent, apparently from liver cirrhosis...

Good follow up to the premiere episode
25 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Who's Who in Neverland opens with socialite Margo Bentley (Joanna Barnes) speaking on the phone with her agent about a thinly veiled tell-all book she is writing about her experiences with the Hollywood elite. She decides to secretly check into a motel for privacy in order to write additional chapters, and it is there that she is murdered. Through a series of blunders by the police, funeral home and Dr. Asten (John S. Ragin) of the coroner's office, the victim is mistakenly identified as a prostitute and her body is released and cremated. Quincy (Jack Klugman) suspects that everyone has drawn the wrong conclusion in this case and does not believe that she died of cirrhosis of the liver which leads him to investigate further and find a strange microorganism in her blood which cannot be explained.

This second episode of Quincy is another good one following the premiere and well worth watching. While we do see who the killer is in the beginning, we do not know specifically why he wanted to silence the victim or who else might be involved. This is another episode from which several scenes were used for the opening theme sequence which was eventually used in Season 2.

One thing I've found to be consistent throughout this series and immediately evident in these early episodes is that Lt. Monahan (Garry Walberg) could be the most incompetent, annoying and tactless character that has ever existed in a mystery series. Right from the beginning, he's a loudmouth with a one track mind that is on the wrong track 99.9% percent of the time. I realize that the character was written this way so he and Quincy would often go toe to toe which helped set up conflict, but does he have to be such an insufferable curmudgeon all of the time??
