Yvette Mimieux continues her surfing. She and Kildare go to the beach at night and they “make out”. He is infatuated with her but cant get her to accept the epilepsy. She has many smaller siezures. Kildare meets all the beach bums and beatnicks of that time. Ultimately she goes for a surf, catches the wave off her life and has a grand mal siezure at the same time. She drowns and Kildare is there to pronounce her dead. GREAT episode with a sad ending.

  1. Tyger-Tyger was my all time favorite episode of “Dr. Kildare”.

  2. After 50+ years, Tiger Tiger is still firmly embedded in my mind as one of the most memorable TV shows of my pre-teen years. It had one of the most heartbreaking endings on TV for many decades, none other comes close.

    This show has stood out in my mind for years ; of all of the Dr. Kildare series , it was my favorite one ever produced. I agree with Michael. I still remember it in vivid detail- even after all of this time. A tragic, heart-wrenching ending, that I have never been able to get out of my mind . The poem used has become one of my favorites as well. ” Tiger, Tiger burning bright, in the forest of the night…what immortal hand or eye, could frame thy fearful symmetry ? “
