Episode 7: A PLACE TO DIE

Written by Terence Feely
Story by Brian Clemens
Produced by John Sichel

(tx date May 26, 1973)
fr: Un village tranquille
Dr Bruce Nelson and his wife Tessa move to a peaceful village. Sinister events occur when Tessa becomes the source of attraction for the locals.
Ian Kerr comments:
"Once again Clemens used the plot of a whole community fostering a deadly secret, a device that he used to great effect on the Avengers episodes The Town of no Return and Murdersville. (Timescreen, Issue 20/1994, p.29)

Bruce Nelson tritt seine Arbeit als praktischer Arzt in einem abgelegenen Dorf an. Seiner Frau Tessa lassen die Bewohner große Aufmerksamkeit zukommen. Was führen sie im Schilde?
Ein Landarzt: A Place to Die ist eine Gruselgeschichte vom Allerfeinsten und ein gutes Beispiel dafür, wie in Thriller weitgehend gewaltfrei eine immense Bedrohung aufgebaut wird. Brillant gespielt vor allem von Marshall, Edwards und Moreno.
