Cult favourite actor Herbert Lom takes on his first British television role as the gifted and compassionate psychiatrist Dr. Roger Corder in this classic series from ABC Television. A widower in his mid-forties, Corder spends his life analysing others; tearing them apart to put them back together again in better shape. Primarily he is a detective, probing secrets and searching for causes dispassionately laying the facts before those seeking his help in the human jungle ...
This complete series set contains all 26 episodes of this hard-hitting and well-remembered series. John Barry's rousing theme tune sets the scene for each story (based on a real-life case history) and the cast includes Joan Collins, Francesca Annis, Rita Tushingham, Alfred Burke and Annette André, among many others.

Each episode focuses on the emotional behaviour and psychology of the patient and often other main characters. Corder gets to the bottom of the cause, explains it all and everyone lives happily ever after. I haven't watched them all yet but haven't seen him prescribe a single pill so far. There is inevitably some dramatic licence and, perhaps, simplification of psychiatric concepts, but this drama series is unique in its probing into human behaviour in this way. I was going to say "way ahead of its time" but actually it is of its time - they just couldn't make programs like this any more; way too sophisticated.
In addition to the architecture, decor and external shots showing cars etc. it's also interesting to note the "class" differences portrayed. The deference, "Mr." this, "Mrs" that, frequently, almost excessively, addressing people as "sir" to concede seniority. Also how accents have changed and that in British Culture accents then, as they do to a lesser extent now, mark "rank" and "credibility.Read more ›
Watching them again after so many years, it did bring back memories, especially of a few episodes which have stayed in the memory because they were so good. I must admit, there were some I could not recall, perhaps they were forgettable, hardly anything happening in the story, a little dull maybe. This does happen in long running series, you get some very good episodes and a few duff ones.
The best episodes for me, and the most memorable are:
Struggle for a Mind (this is a classic, perhaps the best of the entire series, starring Joan Collins); The Flip Side Man (Jess Conrad); The Lost Hours (Leonard Sachs); 14 Ghosts (Andre Morell); A Woman With Scars (Jeanne Moody); and Time-Check(Melvyn Hayes)
Amongst the worse are:
The Man Who Fell Apart (Rita Tushingham) this is particularly boring; A Friend of The Sergeant Major (Alfred Burke) a rather pointless episode; Over and Out (Eddie Byrne) another pointless episode.
The rest are more than adequate with many guest stars appearing such as a very young Francesca Annis (Wild Goose Chase); Sylvia Syms (Success Machine); and Dame Flora Robson (Conscience on a Rack).
Picture quality for all episodes is rather good, with decent sound, albeit in stereo. There is a gallery presentation on Disc 7. There are no other extras available on the discs, but there is plenty of reading in the 39 page booklet which accompanies the discs.
I have already placed my pre-order for this and look forward to watching the whole series.

The Dr Corder character played by Herbert Lom does not appear to be very sympathetic and can be quite short tempered. I don't think I'd like to be treated by him. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Whinbrook
