Doctor on the Box
The TV adaptation of the highly popular series of ‘Doctor’ books by Richard Gordon was a massive hit for ITV on its original transmission in 1969. Centred on the hilarious misadventures of a team of young doctors at St. Swithin’s Hospital, the series showcased the talents of Barry Evans, Robin Nedwell, Geoffrey Davies and Richard O’Sullivan as their characters made painful progress from newly qualified juniors to fully fledged medical malcontents under the scrutiny of the fearsome Professor Loftus (Ernest Clark).
Featuring scripts from a team of writers that included Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden (The Goodies), John Cleese and Graham Chapman (Monty Python’s Flying Circus), Barry Cryer (The Two Ronnies, The Kenny Everett Television Show) and Douglas Adams (Hitch-hiker’s Guide…), its original setting and robust humour made the Doctor series essential viewing. The series lasted for nearly a decade and this 20-disc set presents every hilarious episode, originally screened between 1969 and 1977.
