  • Kill on command!

    7.8
    Scottish actor Nicol Williamson plays Dr. Eric Mason (known among others from the Excalibur in 1981 as Merlin, Hamlet 1969, Black Widow 1987 and The Exorcist 1990). A very young Kim Cattrall (best known from her role of Samantha in Sex And The City) plays a part we’re not used to. She plays a romantic a bit unstable woman Joanne Nicholls. Dr Eric Mason is having a heart check-up when his dogs at his house attack and kill his wives lover Dr. Hunter (played by Joel Fabiani)
    It is not long when Columbo suspects Mason for the murder , after all Dr Mason is a psychologist who uses words to influence people, why not dogs? But Columbo has to find a way and prove how Mason made his dogs kill on command from such a distance
    Quite amusing episode even if you know from the beginning what happened. The only thing you don’t know is the commanding word Not the best story but quite amusing.
