Synopsis: Clive Exton's dark satire was broadcast on 13 September 1964 - some two years after its intended transmission. Despite the approval of the regulator, the Independent Television Authority, the broadcaster, ABC, feared that the play would cause offence when a witness with a stuttered is mocked by the prosecuting counsel.
Doctor Fancy is charged with unlawful killing after an apparently unnecessary double leg amputation results in the death of the patient. It emerges that the doctor has performed hundreds of such operations to deal with the 'Cyclops syndrome' - a psychological condition supposedly suffered by tall people who are embarrassed by their height. Fancy's radical solution is to amputate both legs below the knee.
