Not sure what type to put this under. I think this movie inspired
the Hidden. A male detective is puzzled when a series of bruta,
impossible murders suddenly grip the city. It is being done by an
escaped Alien Prisoner form a star prisonn It/he/she escaped &
killed all the crew & other prisnors accept for the mediacal
officer. A beautiful blond Maryann d'Abo ( a Bond girl). This alien
is kind of a shape shifter. It can somehow dig into human bodies &
use them & even access some of their memories. The pair try & track
it down & kill it before it can reproduce itself via cloning. It
becomes both men & woman - one of the more lengthly impersonations
is that of a woman scientist who talks with the pair. It has
moments of great excitement & the scene in flashback where the
alien escapes & kills everyone is really chilling. The show also
has some flashes of humor. Its well done & well acted.
Note: this was orginally a mini series edited into a 3 hour movie.
Anusingly one of the thing edited out I guess networks don't want
any mention of region in shows - was the best - if strangest
explantion of why a woman from another planet is identical to us
identical to us.

the same for us & most other races in the galaxy!" she tells the
