"Never Stop Running"
is an episode of The Fugitive starring
David Janssen, Claude Akins, and Joanna Moore.
A couple tricks Dr. Kimble into helping an injured young boy who is a hemophiliac (a bleeder), and whom they have kidnapped for a $200,000 ransom.
On his way out of town after finishing a stint as a migrant farm worker, Dr. Kimble is prevailed upon to help a couple who claims their son needs a doctor. Though Kimble says he's not a doctor, that he just knows first aid, the couple are desperate. No one else is around who can help. Once Kimble arrives at the cabin, he finds out that things are not as they were presented to him. It turns out that the child is a kidnap victim who sustained some bruising when he was snatched. As a hemophiliac, there's a danger of internal bleeding. When Kimble can't convince the kidnappers to take the child to a hospital, he asks them to go to a pharmacy for vitamin K, a coagulant that would promote blood clotting. But the pharmacy won't dispense it without a prescription. Kimble must come up with a way to save the child.
During the course of the four year run of "The Fugitive", Richard Kimble (David Janssen) did more than enough good works to qualify for sainthood! Although on the run from the law, he so often seems to walk into situations where he is desperately needed and you can depend on him doing the right thing...even if it might mean him getting caught. This is exactly what happens in "Never Stop Running".
Some folks say they are looking for a doctor and ask Kimble to come with them...though he insists he isn't a doctor. But they've heard rumors and know that he knows something about medicine and take him with them. The sick person they are taking him to see is a child...a kidnapping victim who is a hemophiliac. Can Kimble save the bleeding kid's life AND save himself and the kid from these kidnapping scum.
This is a good, solid and enjoyable episode. Kimble once again does the right thing and miraculously everything seems to become just fine...a trademark in these shows. Well worth seeing.
