Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A Stitch in Crime was first aired as an episode of TV's Columbo. Leonard Nimoy guest stars as a brilliant, ambitious heart surgeon. Jealous of an equally brilliant associate (Will Geer) Nimoy arranges for his rival's death on the operating table. No one could possibly suspect Nimoy of deliberately killing his patient--no one but Columbo (Peter Falk), that is. A Stitch in Crime premiered on February 11, 1973.
