Robert Amos adapted his radio play. Amos described the story as a drama on conscience in the style of Kafka.[5]


The TV critic for The Sydney Morning Herald thought that it proved that "when a play is completely focused on the working out of intense human conflicts at close range, television proves to be an excellent medium... Brian James made the doctor into a tragic and moving figure consumed by the torture of past experience."[6]
