Storyline

Faith healer Peter Croft is seeking damages for libel against Harry McDonald. In a radio interview McDonald described Croft as a fraud who exploited patients. McDonald's wife had consulted Croft after being paralyzed - it seemed permanently - following a riding accident. The defendant says that Croft promised a miracle cure but it was soon evident this would not occur and a deeply depressed Mrs. McDonald then killed herself with an overdose of pills. McDonald and his defence team argue that Croft - whose main work is as an antiques dealer - has no training or ability as a healer and the negative comments are true. However Croft insists he has genuine gifts and his services are entirely honest and benevolent, often conducted for minimal or no charge at all. Written by Alan Briscoe
