Doctor At Sea – 1974

By now this popular TV series was in it’s fifth year.  Still being produced by London Weekend Television, this was the fourth title in the series and ran for a series of thirteen episodes in 1974.

Previous series had run to two series but it has been said that production costs for this series were considerably higher than those of previous series so only one series was made.


When Dick (Geoffrey Davies) finally gets himself the sack from St Swithin’s Hospital, Duncan (Robin Nedwell) resigns in support. They sign up for what they hope will be a cushy job as medical officers on the cruise ship MS Begonia.

Unfortunately they didn’t realise Professor Loftus’ twin brother, Norman, would be the captain!
