Review

Our Score
In a far-fetched and heavy-handed TV movie, recently widowed Amy Jo Johnson finds her hopes of a peaceful new start dashed when she returns to her home town and begins working for a local doctor (David Jones) with a disturbing secret. Exactly what form that takes quickly becomes evident thanks to Jones's over-exaggerated performance, coupled with the film's annoying visual signposting. Still, it takes nearly an hour for Johnson herself to then abruptly decide to investigate her boss and the rash of deaths among elderly patients, having been too busy romancing an old love to notice the ludicrously obvious. The upshot is a predictable confrontational climax that's only really made tense by a suitably sinister score.

Summary

A widow returns to the small town where she grew up to recover from her grief at the loss of her husband, and gets a job as a secretary to the local doctor. She becomes suspicious about the surprising number of patients who die after treatment, and becomes convinced the seemingly kind medic is poisoning them. Crime drama, starring Amy Jo Johnson and David Haydn-Jones.
