Dr. Benjamin Craig was an extremely successful neurosurgeon who had become so well-known and well-renowned in his field that he was able to open his own very exclusive clinic called The David Craig Institute of New Medicine. There Craig and his two bold young charges, chief of surgery Ted Stuart and Paul Hunter, worked on experimental, sometimes non-surgical advances in medical science. Dr. Stuart was later replaced by Dr. Cohen. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

The Bold Ones: The New Doctors is the best series I've ever seen on TV. I like David Hartman (Good Morning America) who also in the show. John Saxon and the late E.G. Marshall were also great and the whole cast of the show.

I also like the part when they went to work on surgery. And guest stars. Robert Walden who played Dr. Cohen in the last season of the show was good.

I like this show.

I give it *****.
