Evil EMH

Story: Darkling
Written By: Joe Menosky
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
Year: 1997

Essentially a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde story about the Doctor. This episode is okay, but it isn’t as good as you’d expect from a Picardo focused episode...the script veers off into other directions too often like Kes and her love interest. Essentially in attempting to improve his bedside manner, The Doctor adds subroutines to his programming that integrates personalities of several historical figures...unfortunately many figures have a dark side, and it creates a second personality for the Doctor...and evil one.
The episode is sort of hit or miss, the Kes stuff being mostly a miss and the Doctor stuff fumbling between hit and miss. Picardo does give yet another great performance, but this time I don’t even think that truly saves the episode.
