Storyline

A verger, the victim of a hit and run accident, is discovered dead and Jude's young son is near the body. Fearing that he may have inherited his father's devilish traits, she takes him to see Dr. Sita, who claims all is well with the child but the doctor is later found dead, and prematurely aged in a matter of minutes. Volunteer hospital visitor Emily Hawthorne, believed to be a witch but actually a psychic, is murdered in the same way and aged by twenty years. John Strange and Jude come to the conclusion that this is the work of the demon Wizox and struggle to literally get him out of the driving seat. Written by don @ minifie-1

"Strange" is the word for it
21 June 2009 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

**SPOILERS** In his never ending battle with the forces of evil defrocked Church of England Minister John Strange, Richard Coyle, really has his hands full here. Strange ends up battling the latest disciple of the Devil the cagey and blood thirsty Wixoz; actually a mispronunciation of his real name Zoxim which just happens to be the title of this episode.

It's when a number of people acquainted with the dark side of nature end up getting mysteriously killed that Strange starts to smell a rat. Not in that they died but in the circumstance's of their very bizarre deaths. The persons are not only killed in hit and run accidents but have mysteriously aged some 20 years when their bodies were discovered?

Meanwhile Strange's girlfriend Nurse Jude Atkins, Samantha Janus, is concerned about her 10 year-old son Joey, William Tomlin, in the fact that Joey's father, in a previous Srange episode, was exposed by Srange as being one of the many Devil's Demons on earth. What ties the two hit and run victims to Joey is that they Dr. Ravi Siva, Hassani Ahapi, and hospital volunteer Emily Hawthorne, Anna Massey, were both on to something big, in examining Joey, both scientifically as well as paranormally. Something, if deciphered, that would exposed the Demon Zoxim's identity and purpose for being here on earth!

As you would expect, from previous episodes of Strange, Canon Black, Ian Richardson, is totally against Strange's investigation of the dead Miss. Hawthorne and Dr. Siva for reasons known only to himself. Those reasons become clear when his subordinate Rev. Johnson, Colin McFarlane, is given a one way trip out of his Parrish for asking too many embarrassing questions about his wife Marion, Michelle Joseph. It was Marion who discovered Dr. Siva's dead body. Marion found Dr. Siva lying dead in the streets, after being struck down by a runaway car, who then seemed to have aged some 20 years in just a matter of seconds!

With young Joey's innocence in the two deaths of Emily and Dr. Siva now-in Strange's mind-fully explained it becomes evident that they were killed by a disciple of the Devil who's reasons remain unknown. That's until Strange with the help of his two top investigators electronic whiz Toby and the super sensitive to paranormal forces Kevin,Andrew Lee Potts & Tommy Lang, as well as little Joey uncover, through the internet, his secret identity.

***SPOILERS**** The struggle between good, Strange and Nurse Atkin, and evil, the Demon Zoxim, takes place on a double decker bus with the bus driver Mark Brighton fast asleep at the wheel during the entire battle. Zoxim who as we soon see is really the fire breathing and blood sucking Golden Eyes gets all that's coming to him, or her or it, when Strange comes to Nurse Atkins rescue. By doing that Strange prevented him-Zoxin-for doing Nurse Atkins in, by feasting off her fast dwindling life forces, by the time the clock struck the hour of midnight.
