A man brings his ailing daughter to the "Feverman;" a man known for his ability to heal the sick by physically 'fighting' the disease or fever. But the local doctor protests. The price required by the Feverman from the man is much less than the price the Feverman, himself, has to pay and when the doctor interferes, he finds out exactly what the cost of a life is.

"The Feverman"
9 April 2011 | by lost-in-limboSee all my reviews

The very first show of this considerably low-budget TV series gets off to a really good, completely dark start with the "Feverman". Episode one of the first season, is taut and clever. A desperate man seeking help for his dying daughter, despite his family doctor's sceptical hesitations visit's a feverman who might just be fighting his last disease. There it becomes a battle of wills between the believer/s; non-believer and the disease, as a twisted, ironic chain of events develop. Methods are questioned. Again this show really relies on its material (creatively compelling and thoughtful idea) and performances, as its budget shows in its two-piece, compact set designs (namely the mansion's basement). However the make-up effects (truly a hideous creation) are impressively crafted by no other than FX artist Dick Smith and an anxiously gloomy and dangerous atmosphere is held throughout. Also another name showing up is actor David McCallum who's enjoyable as the grizzled, alcoholic Feverman.
