Sitcom Doctor at Sea was the fourth in the Doctor series following in the House, at Large and In Charge.
After getting the sack from St Swithins Dick Stuart-Clark gets a job aboard the HMS Begonia. Duncan Waring walks out in support and joins Dick aboard the ship. By a strange coincidence of fate the ship they were on, The Begonia, was captained by Professor Loftus’ twin brother Captain Norman Loftus (clearly so that Ernest Clark could remain a part of the series).
Writers on the series were Gail Renard, Phil Redmond, Bernard McKenna, Richard Laing, George Layton and Jonathan Lynn.
