Product Description

Five volume box set featuring episodes from each of the five 'Doctor' series which graced British TV screens throughout much of the 1970s. 'Doctor in the House' (1970) follows the exploits of student doctors Upton (Barry Evans), Waring (Robin Nedwell), Stuart-Clarke (Geoffrey Davies) and Collier (George Layton). Four episodes are included here: 'It's All in the Little Blue Book' has Upton experience difficulties with his bedside manner; 'What Seems to Be the Trouble' sees the hapless Upton lose his patient; 'Nice Body, Lovely Finish' finds Collier getting into hot water when he parks his newly-purchased hearse outside the hospital mortuary; and 'Look Into My Eyes' has Upton, Waring and Stuart-Clark experiment with hypnosis. 'Doctor at Large' (1971) sees the newly-qualified Doctor Upton take his first steps in his new career. Four episodes are included: in 'Now Mr Upton' Upton and his colleagues find themselves in need of a drink after their first day at work; 'You've Really Landed Me in It This Time' sees Upton treat a man called Upton leading to a mistaken identity crisis with hilarious consequences; 'You Make Me Feel So Young' has Upton's patients wondering whether this man really is the doctor he says he is; and 'Modernising Major' finds the hapless young medical man beating off the advances of schoolgirls after he delivers a sex education talk. 'Doctor in Charge' (1973) follows doctors Waring, Stuart-Clarke and Collie as they climb the career ladder. Features four episodes: in 'The Devil You Know' Waring returns from the US to find that he is not as fondly remembered as he had hoped; 'The Research Unit' finds Professor Loftus eagerly awaiting the results of Waring's research; 'The Minister's Health' sees a government minister receive some unexpected treatment when he is admitted to the hospital; and 'The Black and White Medical Show' has a racist patient cause havoc when he is treated by a mixed-race medical team. 'Doctor at Sea' (1974) follows the exploits of Doctors Waring and Stuart-Clark when they leave the stuffy confines of St Swithin's hospital and take to the open seas. Includes four episodes: in 'Sir John and the Baby Doc' Waring and Stuart-Clark have trouble locating their ship; 'Oh, I Do Like to Be Beside the Seasick' finds Waring suffering from a dose of role reversal when he becomes the patient on a ship bound for the Canary Islands; 'A Healthy Ship is a Happy Ship' has Waring surprise both crew and passengers by trying to exert his authority; and 'The Senior Officer's Perk' sees the mariner-cum-medical man get involved in some underhand activities. Finally, 'Doctor on the Go' (1977) catches up with the escapades of Doctor Waring after he returns from his stint at sea and starts working at St Swithins again. Includes four episodes: 'Keep Your Nose Clean' has Waring look after a famous footballer; 'When a Body Meets a Body' sees Waring cause mayhem when he is put in charge of a prisoner'; 'It's the Thought That Counts' finds Waring in yet more trouble after he tries to arrange a special gift for Doctor Loftus; and 'A Run for Your Money' sees Waring lose the £500 he helped raise for charity.
