The richest man in the world is grief-stricken when his wife is diagnosed with a fatal illness for which there is no known cure. His wife’s sister is a doctor of psychology and her husband is the rich man’s assistant. They are summoned to a private location where the man intends on sorting his affairs before he joins his wife in a cryogenic sleep to wait out a cure.

An interesting look back to the 70s when cryogenic freezing of people was thought to be the next big thing. I'd think it's probably still around today, but I do wonder how extensive it is being used. Of course as far as I know no one (or animal) has been successfully been brought back to life after being frozen, but still an interesting idea. In this episode there is also the question of whether there really was a supernatural element or just insanity. Overall it was a good listen.


This story is based on the early 70's supernatural soap opera "Strange Paradise". The names of the characters are different as is the name of the island, but the story and situation is the same. If you remember John Paul Desmond and his beautiful deceased wife Erica along with her sister, the housekeeper Raxl, etc, this story will sound very familiar.


Although the cryogenic idea showed promise, the storyline of the possession was COMPLETELY absurd. I would not have guessed this was an Ian Martin tale.


I expect better of Ian Martin. Very banal.
