Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Originally telecast as part of the British Saturday Serial anthology, The Voodoo Factor starred Maurice Kaufman as dedicated disease specialist Dr. David Whittaker. The supernatural revivification of a 200-year-old Polynesian spider goddess threatened to unleash a deadly malaria-style virus upon the world. All that stood between mankind and its destruction was the tireless Dr. Whittaker, who had of course been targeted for early extermination by the Goddess' fanatical followers. The six half-hour episodes of The Voodoo Factor were shown from December 12, 1959 to January 16, 1960.
