Doctor On The Go (ITV 1975-1977, Robin Nedwell, Geoffrey Davies)

Doctor on the Go, number 5 in the Doctor series, saw Duncan Waring and Paul Collier heading back to St Swithins after their exploits at sea. In fact this was the final series the team made for ITV, although still to come were some Antipodean adventures in Doctor Down Under and middle aged stories in the much later Doctor at the Top.

It was pretty much business as usual but during season two Duncan Waring declared his love for Nurse Kate Wright and the pair married in the final episode.

Of interest to genre fans is the fact that Douglas Adam’s co-authored the 20 February 1977 episode For Your Own Good, with Graham Chapman. This was pre Hitch-Hikers fame when he was still trying to get a toe-hold in the business.
