Dr. Strange is a made-for-TV movie based on the Marvel Comics fictional character Doctor Strange, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. It was both directed and written by Philip DeGuere. Stan Lee served as a consultant on the film, which was created as a pilot for a proposed TV series.


A young woman named Clea Lake becomes a pawn of the sorceress Morgan Le Fay. The primary defender of our world against threats of a magical nature, the Sorcerer Supreme, is presently a man named Thomas Lindmer (pronounced as Merlin, the Arthurian sorcerer, with the two syllables inverted). He and his man-servant Wong contact a psychiatrist named Stephen Strange, who is the heir to his father's potential to become Lindmer's disciple and the next Sorcerer Supreme. Strange bears his father's magical ring as a sign of this, and he has already sensed something wrong, but does not recognize the importance of these feelings of apprehension. Lindmer must convince Strange of the reality of the mystical world wherein the battle between good and evil is played out on a magical level, all unbeknownst to the mundane world, to save Clea and thwart Morgan's plans.
