This is the official MM thread for The Woman on the Beach (2.3). All discussions and reviews for this episode should go here. If you wish to rate the episode, please do so with the poll. The avg. score will be the official 'community rating', which will be used on the episode page (updated monthly).

This thread is also linked in the episode page of the Episode Guide.


Original Air Date: 10/22/1981
Rick, sad over a failed love affair, finds solace in the company of a beautiful woman named Sara. As the two walk along the beach, she vanishes into thin air. When Magnum investigates the woman's strange disappearance, he learns that Sara actually committed suicide 35 years before. Is someone impersonating the woman or is there some other logical explanation for her puzzling disappearance?

I've rated all the episdes from the first 2 seasons. "The Woman On The Beach" is the only one that I gave a 10 to.

The script is outstanding. Lots of action, adventure, romance, and mystery. And Judith Chapman really knows how to act.

She was also in "The Black Orchid" from season 1. It's interesting that in both episodes, she plays a character who likes to dress up as a woman from the 1940s - althouth for a very different reason in each of the two episodes. I saw her on an episode of McGuyver once, too. I read that she was in daily soap operas, but I never watch them.

According to IMDB, the last name of the character played by Jack Hogan is spelled "Ellyson", not "Ellison", as is indicated here on the Magnum Mania site.

Also, the tv.com page for this episode indicates that the caretaker's name is spelled "Josef", not "Joseph".

Does anyone know for sure what is the correct spelling of these characters' names? Is this indicated in the DVD box set?

Hi eegorr,

The characters names are not shown on screen, as both of the actors received "guest star" billing. In MPI, the guest stars names are shown at the beginning and very rarely are accompanied by the name of the character they play. This is why sometimes different sources will list different spellings of the characters names.

The Pittsburgh RTN station played the complete original broadcast version of "The Woman On The Beach" yesterday. It had the opening teaser and the season 2 opening. There were only 3 commercial breaks.

I see that "Vulgarian Visigoth" is a ranking that posters here get after a certain number of posts. That's from this episode.

They never did an official Halloween episode, but in terms of the spirit of what the episode is about, I think this one was the closest. I know that "Of Sound Mind" had a costume party, but storywise, "The Woman On The Beach" is more Halloween themed.

I really love the weather in this episode too. More than any other episdoe, this one does the best job of consistently showing how great the weather in Hawaii is, in every single outside scene. I guess part of that is due to the fact that so many scenes that take place in the garden.

Hey grundle,

It's not necessarily a rank that you can attain through a certain number of posts (technically). When I reached Admiral, and noticed IH's "Master Flub Spotter" rank, I asked how he got it, James got generous, and then all of us Admirals had the choice to get a custom rank. My offbeat sense of humor chose "Vulgarian Visigoth", right after I saw that episode.

I kinda think it fits, given my posting style

:lol:

Thanks for explaining that.

This episode is one of my favourite in Season Two. I loved how mysterious it was at the end.

IMDB is often wrong - and trying to get them to correct it is like trying to get Higgins to allow access to the wine celler! :lol: For ages they had Mac mk. II, Jim Bonick, spelled as 'Bonig'.

When I tracked down an entered the names for TV.com (TVTome as it was back then), I used a number of sources, including old TV Times magazines (TV Times listed ITV shows, which is where Magnum was originally shown in the UK). 'Josef' seemed to be the most consistant, but that's not to say it's definately correct. :)
