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.

If I have one criticism, it is that the character of Dr Corder is rather enigmatic. Apart from his daft and rather irritating daughter, he seems to have no private life. In 26 episodes he never casts as much as a passing glance at the delicious Miss Hamilton whose only function is to answer the phone, show in patients and make tea. A little romance might have added a bit of human interest.
Still, it is a super bit of nostalgia for those who remember it first time round, and will be of interest to a modern audience as first rate story telling, as well as a piece of social history. It's hard to credit now, but as recently as the 1960s doctors smoked during consultations and patients were allowed to puff away in their hospital beds. And it must have one of the best theme tunes ever composed for television.
The box set comes with an informative 38 page booklet about the making of the series. Recommended.
Herbert Lom is quite excellent (throughout the two series) in the principal role, and he is well-supported. Above all, the episodes portray perfectly believable situations and solutions, even if Dr Corder occasionally seems to be treating his patients for the love of it rather than for the money...
One of the things I love about these old series is seeing big stars before they made it big (and there are many of them here).In fact, the very last episode in the collection features a story about a female teacher assaulting a pupil (no connection to the above mentioned episode).I watched the story trying to figure out why the school girl in the story seemed so familiar and it was only towards the end that I realised it was Susan George in what must have been one of her earliest roles.
Picture quality is good although sound in a couple of episodes could be better but doesn't spoil the enjoyment.
As a Londoner; the streets are genuine as well; I even emptied the dustbins around Wimpole and Harley Street; it was called St Marylebone in those days..!
I guess the People were all Londoners as well way back then; except Herbert ''of course'' ..?
