Fourteen years after the final ITV series, and ten after the Australian, Richard Gordon's Doctor stories returned to the small-screen - this time courtesy of the BBC.
A lot had obviously happened in the interim: Waring had become a paediatrician at St Swithin's and was married with five daughters; Collier was a consultant at St Swithin's and also had a Harley Street practice; and Stuart-Clark was the hospital's Professor of Surgery. NHS under-funding and bed shortages were obviously issues to be tackled, and there was less emphasis on the female anatomy as the butt of all jokes.
