Storyline

Margo Bentley's about her experiences hobnobbing with powerful people worldwide just might be a best-seller. Concerned about advance publicity, she advises her agent that she'll continue working in a hotel, under an alias. Hours later, she's dead, apparently of liver cirrhosis. Unmoved by Quincy's objections, Asten releases the body to a funeral home that quickly cremates it. Then Quincy finds a strange microorganism in her blood - something he's never seen before. One of Margo's friends gives Quincy the New York telephone number of her literary agent, but Quincy finds that avenue closed - by the days earlier death of that agent, apparently from liver cirrhosis...

Trivia

The shot of Quincy looking up from his microscope during the series opening credits is taken from this episode. Also, the shot of Carol Lynley slowly going down the steps in a blue dress (when her face isn't shown) also comes from this episode. In effect this means she appears in every episode of Quincy, even though it isn't obvious. See more »

Goofs

The two shots of Fredericks sitting on the beach eavesdropping is exactly the same even though it was supposed to be on two different days. See more »

Who's Who in Neverland
18 July 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The second episode of Quincy. The dedicated and passionate pathologist need to dig his boss, Dr Asten out of trouble.

Socialite Margo Bentley was writing an expose of Hollywood lives. She checked into a low rent hotel to write more material. She ended up dead, it looks like liver poisoning through long term alcoholism.

The police think she was an unknown prostitute who drank herself to death. Dr Astin thinks the same and releases the body for cremation.

However Quincy is worried about Bentley's demeanour. Her all over tan, expertly done fingernails. The fact that someone claimed the body wanted it cremated should had rung alarm bells.

It later emerges that Bentley's publisher has died in the east coast. Again it seems of the long term effects of alcohol.

Quincy needs to get there fast and do an autopsy even if it means using subterfuge.

It certainly seems the case that Bentley found out stuff about some powerful people and they wanted to silence her even it it meant germ warfare.

The characters are being established in the early episodes. Some nice interplay between Sam and Quincy. Dr Asten is more like a bureaucrat and an incompetent pathologist. Lt Monahan seems out of his depth as a detective if he thinks a lone woman in a hotel must be a drunk prostitute.

There is a lot of humour and danger although the episode ended a little too neatly and glibly given the danger Quincy was in.
