Storyline

After Colonel MacKenzie is seriously injured in an accident, Tate brings him into the nearest town looking for a doctor. He finds that the only doctor in town is in jail, scheduled to be hanged the next morning. Though Tate finally persuades the sentencing judge to let the doctor out under guard to treat the colonel, when Tate investigates he learns that the judge may have been motivated more by a desire for vengeance than for justice.

Dire Doctor
8 June 2011 | by (Roseworthy, South Australia) – See all my reviews

Colonel MacKenzie is in a dire situation from injuries sustained on a cattle drive and Tate has gone into the nearest town to get help from the local doctor Benjamin Kinkaid. Tate has continual flashbacks about the situation that caused Colonel MacKenzie's injury.

However, at the doctor's practice, Tate is informed by the doctor's wife that the doctor is incarcerated due to be hung! Tate is on a mission to get the Colonel the medical help he requires but is refused by the local Law and Judge John Markham.

Later Judge Marham has a change of heart and allows the death row doctor a chance to help Colonel MacKenzie and with his diagnosis Dr Kinkaid informs Tate that an immediate operation is required.
