Next Episode of Doctor in the House is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Doctor in the House is a British television comedy series based on a set of books and a film of the same name by Richard Gordon about the misadventures of a group of medical students. It was produced by London Weekend Television from 1969 to 1970.
Dick and Duncan return to St Swithins, having failed to stop - thanks to Dick - at a road accident. Hardly anybody remembers who they are, though they get their jobs back. New colleagues number efficient doctor Kate Wright, proud, but often tipsy, Scot Andrew MacKenzie and James Gascoigne, the creepy, serious natural successor to Lawrence Bingham. Duncan almost loses his new job on his first day after running up against the manager of an injured footballer.
Confusion reigns at the hospital when the non-English speaking Ciappossoni family take over Casualty, a hypochondriac demands an operation, a corpse goes astray and convicted criminal Melia, brought in under guard for a gallstone operation, has his trolley accidentally switched with that of the corpse and ends up in the morgue, where he assumes he is on a ward and chats to the other 'patients' - to nil response.
To celebrate Sir Geoffrey's twenty years as a professor of surgery, Dick and Duncan decide to buy him a present to celebrate the event, but the other doctors are not keen as they have had recent run-ins with the great man. Dick eventually buys him a tape recorder but it has a mind of its own and accidentally begins recording - a conversation the doctors are having in which they all criticize Sir Geoffrey.
When Sir Geoffrey gives the hospital its first radio service he should have known better than to let Dick help run it as he incorporates local advertisers - to line his own pockets. MacKenzie's drunken on-air rants and Gascoigne's tedious play about Louis Pasteur also drive the patients to watching old films on TV, but when Nurse Reynolds unwittingly chats up Duncan on air, it gives birth to a saucy soap opera with the patients clamouring for more.
Duncan has lost charity money entrusted him by Sir Geoffrey. A cross country race between St Swithins and Highcross is coming up so Duncan, Dick and McKenzie bet on Highcross to win and nobble their own runners by various means. Taking part themselves they accidentally win but are disqualified for cheating, ensuring a Highcross victory.
Duncan needs to pass a vital anatomy exam but the rowdy antics of flatmates Dick Stuart-Clark and Andrew MacKenzie are not conducive to a study environment. Fellow doctor Kate takes pity on him and lets him use her flat. Her boyfriend Barry is not at all happy with this so Kate finishes with him, leaving Duncan with the possibility of getting the girl, as well as the exam.
At an exhibition encouraging school-leavers to take up medicine, Dick, Duncan and Andrew meet the head of the Charlemagne hotel chain, who is looking for a resident doctor in his London hotel. The three doctors vie with each other and the post is won by Dick, but it is not what it was cracked up to be and he returns to St. Swithins.
Duncan takes charge of a group of new students and tries to get in with them by playing the joker and recounting his own japes as a young student. Following an operation he is aghast to find that there is a spare body part in the bin. He fears that he has done something wrong but in fact it's the students playing a joke on him. He needs to get his own back.
The five doctors are finding it very cramped having to share one office, and getting smaller desks doesn't help, so Dick has an idea. In exchange for being introduced to the local golf professional, Sir Geoffrey will swap his large office for the others'. However, further complications arise and everybody is still dissatisfied, so Duncan hatches a plan to get things back to normal.
Duncan competes with James Gascoigne to find an unusual case study to present at a forthcoming medical conference. Fortunately for Duncan he finds Mr. Andrews, a man whose heart is on the right hand side of his body - a rare case indeed. Unfortunately Mr. Andrews gets fed up with waiting around and wanders off whilst the eventual X-ray tendered is that of Sir Geoffrey.
Duncan is feeling depressed so he goes to see Professor Browning, a psychiatrist who urges him to change his life-style and become more confident. This works so well that Dick and Andrew also go to see Browning and change their life-styles - both becoming unusually sober and serious. Even Sir Geoffrey is not immune from the Browning treatment but he becomes very trendy.
Dick hurts his leg and Duncan does his back in so they decide that, as an alternative to conventional medicine, they will seek the help of a faith healer. Sir Geoffrey is dismissive, calling such people quacks. However, when the two doctors arrive for their appointment they discover that the faith healer has just died.
Duncan is feeling stressed out again. Gascoigne seems to be after his job and they have a public falling-out in front of a bunch of medical students. He loves Kate but can he go through with marriage to her? Things conspire to get on top of him and he has a big bust up with her after she hits him. Will they get back on track for the next series?
