Storyline

Buchan theorizes that the killer believes they are a modern Witchfinder General and that the markings on both Dorothy's house and the scene of Alexander's murder are to warn off evil spirits, though homeless Lee Bysack claims they are to show houses friendly to vagrants. Another woman is killed and it seems that each victim gave the murderer the name of an associate, who was then slain. Dr. Llewellyn tells Chandler that Dorothy's killer lost a finger through gangrene and Buchan explains that the gangrene was probably the result of ergot poisoning, which causes madness and paranoia. This leads to a disused bakery and a killer who believes they were cursed by witchcraft as the police manage to save the last victim. Written by don @ minifie-1

OK! How Do You Want It?
23 April 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I guess I thought for a while that this was a series devoted to unconventional police work. It was for a while until events began to be explained as being caused by supernatural means. I think they want us to believe that the police station is actually haunted. This would be fine if we were left to come to our own conclusions. But the writers and creators seem bent on showing us the ghosts in some way. This takes, for me, what was an interesting and hard fought case, down about two notches. The whole point of this episode was a crazed man thinking he was doing away with witches that had harmed him. The final ten seconds of this show took away my joy. Two more of these stories to deal with. Will there be redemption?
