  • He can control people's minds - but will he kill them, too?

    6.5
    A crudely-made variant on an old theme - mind control seems to have been with us since the earliest days of science-fiction. This episode looks rather cheap and needs a great deal more detail about its characters; melodrama inevitably takes over what should have been a tragic story. However, it does have a performance of real merit from Janice Rule, who creates a real, caring person where the other actors are mostly content to impersonate caricatures.moreless
