All night dispensary provides intersection for several subplots
"Incident at Midnight" (1963) is an entry in the Edgar Wallace Theatre series. This story has several intersecting subplots, each of which takes some time to understand. At the center of one is an older man (Martin Miller) who inhabits the dispensary every night for a prescription. His interest is in Anton Diffring who has changed his name and is apparently an ex-Nazi war criminal. Diffring has a blonde wife and a blonde mistress. He's involved in a drug for money exchange that involves two lockers and two keys, his intent being to become wealthy selling the drugs. There is a third blonde, who wears a fur coat like that of Diffring's wife and also sunglasses. She comes in and out of the dispensary mysteriously and befriends Miller. Finally, there are the three thieves who did the drug heist. One has been wounded and Miller is forced to remove a bullet. They are expecting a key to their cash payment.
There is some overacting in this episode on the part of the head thief. There is a fair amount of talking too. Diffring is watchable as always. The three blondes all do a good job keeping the show interesting. The Miller character is a bit of a stereotype.
This was another decent second feature that was syndicated into the Edgar Wallace series. The story ends with some good action in the Tube.
