Debbie Knight asks.

"Hi, I'm hoping someone will be able to help me. I'm a huge fan of horror TV Sitcoms...ie Tales from the Darkside, Tales from the Crypt etc...However I'm remembering an episode and can't think where it's from. I'll describe it and hopefully someone here can give me a title and hopefully somewhere where i can watch it. The episode a female Dr. received a severed hand from the police that was from a serial killer who strangled his victims. It was explained to her that the hand seems to still move. As the episode continues murders are being committed in the same fashion as the serial killer.

Well the hand reattaches itself to this decomposing body and the boyfriend Dr. is killed ."
