Surprise Identity
30 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

John Williams stars as Sir Guy, who has been called in on a case involving murders of young women that strongly resemble those of the Jack-The-Ripper murders some 70 years earlier. Police psychologist John Carmody(played by Donald Woods) is skeptical of Sir Guy's claim that the original Ripper is the current killer, but they become friendly allies, and after more murders occur, Sir Guy becomes desperate to find him before he hibernates again, little knowing just how close to the Ripper he really is... Uneven episode has fine acting and a most striking and surprising final twist, but is hurt by dull stretches with a beatnik artist that just serve as padding.
