Doctor At Sea (ITV 1974, Robin Nedwell, Geoffrey Davies)

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).
