H.G. WELLS' INVISIBLE MAN: Picnic With Death

Guest Stars:  Lisa Daniely, Deborah Watling, Derek Bond, Faith Brook, Margaret McCourt
Directed by Pennington Richards

After the existence of the Invisible Man is made public, a friend of his niece's appeals to him for help, fearing that her stepfather and his sister are trying to do away with her mother.

Although something of a pivotal episode as the first in which Brady's secret is revealed to the world at large, there isn't much else that stands out in this installment, even though it's a well-acted and staged adventure.  Still, it's good comfort food for fans of the series and a fun time-passer.
