Episode Summary

EDIT
State of Shock
AIRED:

A patient with an overactive imagination at a hospital for the elderly asks Checkmate to investigate strange happenings at the facility, and a series of carefully planned "accidents" aimed at Anne Elliot, wealthy heiress and wife of the facility's director, Dr. Thomas Elliot, seems to corroborate her suspicions. In the investigation Don ends up as a patient himself after suffering an accident on the property. After his recovery his suspicions are aroused by what looks like more than a professional relationship between Dr. Elliot and the head nurse.

  • Smoke and mirrors

    This one has lots and lots of atmosphere. Indeed, the Marple-like old lady perusing her mysteries and the wacky colonel are a hoot. And Warren Stevens is nicely menacing. The problem is though that the resolution proves inevitably to be a bit of a letdown, a trick of smoke and mirrors. We've already had that basic plot happen before in this series, in the episode with Anne Baxter, and there (as here) it makes for a rather unsatisfying tie-up...a distant cousin to the "it was all a dream" scenario.moreless
