The starburst on Dr. Strange's (Peter Hooten's) costume is not on his comic book outfit. While it is similar to one that ordains the costume of another Marvel Comics hero, Captain Mar-Vell, this particular television movie costume starburst design is a tell-tale "signature" of Costume Design Consultant, and former Dr. Strange comic book artist, Frank Brunner. Brunner uses that starburst on many different design projects and incorporated it, as a more television-friendly replacement to the "demon" symbol usually worn by the comic book Dr. Strange. Although not named, the creature that Morgan LeFay (Jessica Walter) serves, was visually inspired by Dr. Strange's comic book archnemesis, Dormammu, while Morgan could be seen as being inspired by Dormammu's sister (and Strange's foe), Umar.

This movie deviates somewhat from the Dr. Strange comic book, but I found it to be very entertaining and fun to watch. Peter Hooten does a good job as Dr. Strange. Veteran actor John Mills has a prominent part as Lindmer, the sorcerer. As has been mentioned earlier, "Dr. Strange" was supposed to be the pilot for a proposed TV series, but unfortunately it was not picked up by a network.
