The setting for "A Question of Midnight" is very, very familiar. It's the clichéd small and VERY unfriendly town--one where just about everyone is angry at the detective and show through their actions that there is a lot that is hidden. This small town conspiracy angle is, unfortunately, just too familiar. And, when he's set up the first time, you KNEW exactly when it was coming. Fortunately, how this is all handled is very good--making it worth seeing.

The show begins with a woman paying Mannix to investigate an ex-doctor's past. It seems his license to practice was revoked and now he's in trouble for saving a dying boy's life. Mannix needs to uncover why he lost this license in the first place. Oddly, the doctor isn't grateful for Mannix's help and actually gets in the way of the investigation. How all this works out is pretty clever--plus, interestingly, it's one of the few episodes where Mannix actually gets the girl in the end of the show. This is unusual because so often women turn out to be louses and cheats! Overall, not great but quite good.
